Performance: “I Am Your Oracle” – a performative mediation by Sira-Zoé Schmid

While on Artist in Residency in the US in 2017 Sira-Zoé Schmid created her latest two-part video performance “Desert Flower“. “With a clear and poetic visual language, „Desert Flower“ is a universal exploration into loss and ephemerality and the various mechanisms of coping with these sensations“ (Sophie Haslinger).

In her performative mediation at V E N T gallery, Sira-Zoé Schmid uses the oracle prospects of Patience, a mystical card game used to tell your future. Winning or losing in this fateful case means yes or no. Patience; in a not so mystical meaning is better known as the game of a million hastily concealed PC windows. Its popularity might derive from its strangely hypnotic nature, even though it takes real persistence to win. At V E N T gallery, Schmid stages the fateful game into a mystically surrounding. By laying the cards on illustrative questions, dealing with the context of her video performance “Desert Flower”, she reveals the basic thoughts of this art work.
