Catherine Vertige talks with NG about her sound piece Give Me a Break.
NG (no birth-date, lives everywhere) looks for a new ways of living / moving / working as an artist.
In the exhibition Architectures of Survival, in Berlin, in 2008, NG presented the video Limits Of Paradise: Free Solo, a dream of survival: the artist wandering in different landscapes (snowy mountains, post-industrial river side, wild nature…) gathering, telling the name, eating, herbs, bays, plants. The video was accompanied by her drawing and text Statement showing all the means of travelling and lodging that she uses on her frugal travel (hammock, tent,…). NG also performed the lecture Break Hotel in which she recalls snatches of conversations she has had on how she lives, works and moves from one residency to the next project.
