DANCE OR DIE


As Onoruame created the world, he made the EARTH somewhat too soft. Therefore the Raramuri dance on her, to stamp her solid and make her inhabitable for humankind.


The SOIL gained in the Sierra Tarahumara originates from sites where the Raramuri people dance through the whole night. By dancing they thank Onoruame, who is both mother and father, for the rain and the harvest and ask him for good welfare for humans, animals and nature as a whole.

I found the WHITE and the RED, which they use for the body painting of the Matachines, the dancers and which they use for cave and church painting.

I gained SOIL from a place where the runners tank their energy.

And I excavated also at the wide dispersed block houses of the rancherieas and in caves, where Raramuri still live today and where other withdraw in very cold winters.


In the beginning of the New Year 2011, the pictures produced with this SOIL, will be on show here.


In October 2010 I am travelling to the Copper Canyons in the North of Mexicoto realize a new project.

Together with the Raramuri people who live there, I will attempt to excavate SOIL from sites which have a significant meaning for them.


I hope to be able to publish my first impressions of the journey here on my website.

The exhibition




 

I plead quilty for the chaos in the European air space over the last days...


I obviously strongly damaged the geological balance of the Eyjafjallajökull on Iceland, thereby causing the eruption of the vulcano, by digging SOIL from its flank on the 18th July 2003.

I have launched a fifth language on this website.

With the help of Dimitri Hartman, Kalliopi Garouba und Erofili Ampatzidou - who I would like to thank immensely - the writings on the E U R O P E project can now also be read in GREEK


The collected and downloadabletexts are an appetizer for the forthcoming E U R O P A book, which will be puplished shortly.


Κατάφερα να εισάγω την πέμπτη γλώσσα στην ιστοσελίδα μου.

Με τη βοήθεια των Δημήτρη Χάρτμαν, Καλλιόπης Γκαρούμπα και Ερωφίλης Αμπατζίδου, τους οποίους και θέλω να ευχαριστήσω εγκάρδια, μπορεί κανείς να διαβάσει στην ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΗ γλώσσα τα κείμενα του έργου Ε Υ Ρ Ω Π Η.


Όλα τα κείμενα υπάρχουν στο διαδίκτυο και δίνουν μια πρόγευση για το βιβλίο Ε Υ Ρ Ω Π Η που θα δημοσιευθεί προσεχώς.
