100 ARTISTS, 100 WALKS, 100 DAYS

Metropolis invited 100 artists living in Copenhagen to create 100 curated walks through the city over 100 days from 1 May 2020 – as a performative diary from a city where the corona virus set the agenda and radically changed our daily life. Each artist walked for 12 hours and started at home. Every hour he/she gave a “sign of life” via live-streaming.

I went through a 12-hour emotional journey – a self-invented pilgrimage.
I had asked around and have philosophized about the different states that I myself and others have gone through during this very special time. I shared reflections, and I used my physical expression to go through the spectrum of 12 feelings.

1. Confusion
2. Acceptance
3. Anxiousness
4. Consciousness
5. Frustration
6. Claustrophobia
7. Nostalgia
8. Horny
9. Restlessness
10. Melancholia
11. Denial
12. Peace
