Andrea Zittel, Walking Patterns,12 December 2009, 7 p.m., performance, NUMBER THREE: HERE AND NOW, JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION, Duesseldorf

Andrea Zittel primarily works with objects, installations and wall-mounted models. Her artistic career began with the furniture she designed to suit her needs and fit into her cramped New York City apartment. In her quest for organisation systems in all areas of life, the artist regards herself as an explorer and test subject of sorts: She observes and subjects herself in her daily routine and to certain situations to find out how living conditions, possession, behaviour and views can change a person.

In 1991 Zittel launched the A-Z enterprise, an “institute of investigative living“ for which she designs and produces furniture, clothes and various objects and articles of daily use. Her interest in the relationship between space and time has also led her to explore the medium of dance. Her performances are very short, governed by strict rules and their choreography often recalls parades or processions. The dancers execute simple sequences of steps, which are based, for example in “Walking Patterns“ (2009), on a decorative element such as a crochet pattern.
