Peter Fritzenwallner’s performances relate to “pseudo-scientific content”, slapstick re-enactments of scenes from films such as The Third Man or Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. In conjunction with the public, spontaneous “social sculptures” arise in the exhibition area and in public space.
Coloured objects that seem to be extracted from philosophical and literary texts or that reference works of historical art become performance tools with which Fritzenwallner equips his public and in so doing incorporates them in a flowing dialogue and discourse. Performance walks with sculptural banners follow routes through the city and create temporary frames of reference between the quote and the surroundings. In contrast, the micro-performances – consisting of instructions for action and spontaneous interventions – pass the script to other people and emphasize the coincidental moment as an innovative narrative authority.
