The BRACE position describes a protective posture intended to shield against a hard impact, e.g. when an aeroplane makes an emergency landing. The plane crash is a singular phenomenon in comparison to the existential dangers of everyday life.
Efforts to avoid everyday crashes create an extremely complex system, within which “living” is reformulated as “surviving”.

BRACE Positions

The figure BRACE sounds out these dangers in a new way: its “safety positions” are fresh interpretations of places and forms of behaviour, with which it cancels out social conventions and evades any objectification.
It conquers space in already occupied terrain.
As the re-interpreter of reality, BRACE is a freedom fighter of a special kind - an illusionary catapulted out of the social context.

The work BRACE consists of a series of photographs (BRACE Positions 1-8, 70x110 resp. 110x70cm), performances and social interventions.
