Since 2010 Eva Schippers has been working on a growing archive of images, stories and objects that touch upon the notion of ‘emergency’. An emergency situation is not only something that should be feared, but can also be a moment to long for, a moment of clarity, realness and adrenalin. Every detail sticks in your memory in brighter colours, the rain is more wet, a bird flies by… It is all relevant and part of that moment. You have no time to think or calculate, you just are. Objects that are part of Eva’s archive will be brought to Prague to demonstrate and perform actions with them in public space. The actions and objects have the intent to engage the passant, lifting them out of their common structure for a moment with means such as mental disturbance and alternated environments.
DAY. 2 / 2. DEN
Yesterday Eva Schippers explored areas on the border between the flow of people in Praha 1, from the Karl’s Bridge to the Outpost Truck of ‘Between Realities’. Today she will start her intervention on the bridge at 13:00. She will start at the Castle side and slowly work her way to the city centre
