i am yours

performance
2017


In this performance sven invited random visitors of the museum to join him for a 1 on 1 conversation in which he started by reading them a letter in which he told them about his past, struggles and relatively short life.
He ended the letter with the question if they recognised certain elements from their own life or if they would like to share something with him.

This created beautiful and heartwarming conversations, showing that others are willing to help you in the proces of healing and hopefully this will help you recover from a trauma, problem or thought.

The idea behind is that he wanted to show people how powerful human interaction can be and that we are all one, no matter our gender, skin, appearance or inward problems.
