Heinze is a slightly absurdist performance work in which an attempt is made to both repair and embody a Heinze (a wooden rack traditionally used for drying hay) with the use of cotton rope. Placed in proximity to the Grass Museum and on a pasture, the work seeks to somewhat contextualise the initial function of the Heinze. However, as neither hay nor gestures associated with forking hay onto the structure are present during the performance, Heinze aims to simultaneously create its own vocabulary. By proposing a particular although coexisting body-object orientation and relation, Heinze problematises and plays upon care, tradition and utility.

Performance with Heinze and cotton rope, ca. 7 – 10 min
