Show tongue!

What must be said now and how can we still act when the usual stages are blocked? The eruption body of LAYLA VESUV explores the possibilities of expressing opinion and attitude in public space. Her notices and calls on sheets and flags hang like tongues from windows and balconies, stretching the private into the public space.

LAYLA VESUV uses several communicative outbursts on private balconies to declare the political necessity of speaking and acting together beyond the boundaries of one's own four walls.

LAYLA VESUV is the performance and action body of the Frankfurt artist Ayla Pierrot Arendt. In the context of the exhibition creating a 'we', with which the curator Mine Kaplangi and Collective Çukurcuma brings together local and international artists, the balcony speeches "Eruptions" by LAYLA VESUV can be watched online in the Instagram-Livestream of @basisfrankfurt on Sunday, September 13th, 2020, as well as passers-by* under the respective balconies.

Rhythmically and musically, the individual outbursts are supported by drummer Lutz Jahnke (@afiphessen) and with sound fragments by Fullruhm.

This event is part of the public programme of the exhibition creating a 'we'.

LAYLA VESUV is the performance and action body of the Frankfurt artist (*1987), who lives and works in Frankfurt am Main. Ayla Pierrot Arendt creates interactive spaces in which the gaze and relationship between audience and performer become negotiable, responding to current events and topics with transformative, experimental formats. Arendt studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, and choreography and performance at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Giessen. Since 2012 she has been creating video art, video-choreographies, performances and immersive installations for the visual art and performance context.
