I am not tino sehgal but I have him
6 perfomers, 6 books, 6 hours of perfomance. Each performer signs its book as Tino Sehgal for an hour. Change each hour, for six hours.
You are but you do not have yourself. I have thee. In my eyes, in my opinion, under my touch, in my expectation. We are made of interstices between us. I am not Tino Sehgal, neither you. But we have him. In our pen, signing the book with his name. This action is not about signature. Who cares who the author is? It is all about identity possession and negotiation of connections. The archaic value of gossip.
Special thanks to the performers: Eldi Dundee, Annemiek van Elst, Chiara Pancot, Edoardo Pascale, Sarah Hill, Paolo Rosini and Gabriella Catalano.
