As part of the Goethe-Institut’s ongoing program series Performing Architecture, Berlin-based curator Lukas Feireiss explores the intersection of architecture and performing arts at this year’s La Biennale di Venezia in unusual ways. During the Biennial’s preview and opening days, temporary tattoo-stations are set up at different locations in Venjce, that transform human bodies into image carriers.
With Tattoos for Architects, Feireiss turns to one of the most prominent pairs of analogy in the history of western reception of architecture and cities – that of architecture, the city and the human body. Since antiquity, philosophers and architects alike have imagined cities and buildings as human bodies. The com...parison of tattoo and ornament thereby reveals another layer of meaning. Following famed 18th century German architect and architecture historian Gottfried Semper, architecture acts as our third skin. Semper even ascribes the origin of traditional surface ornament to the art of tattooing. What has been first tested on the body, so he argues, has then been transferred to the building.
Against this backdrop, a specially conceived series of tattoo designs for architects are taken to the skin in Venice with Spanish tattoo artist Javier Hammond. Ironic statements rendered in simple and blunt graphics, that pay tribute to the hard working profession of architecture. WithTattoos for Architects Feireiss furthermore plays deliberately with the ambiguity of the unrepeatable, even-like nature of the act of tattooing and the irreversible permanence of the skin design.
