Work space as a world in itself. Bruce Nauman’s studio works are treatises on the representational world. On the other hand, Derek Jarman’s Studio Bankside converts the studio into a living space where motifs change in fast motion: work, friendship, love and urban ambiance. Carlos Vilardebós’ study Le Cirque de Calder is a portrait of the artist as a director of a circus, where productive space, the staged spectacle and presentation space coincide. In One Year Performance 1980-81 (Time Piece), Hsieh Tehching captures his life in the studio in hourly (!) intervals for a whole year by using a time clock and taking a picture. The result is a six-minute film poem. Friedl vom Gröller’s work performs a semiotic interplay of showing and viewing: The male view and the female actress are reflected in Le Baromètre. Finally, Vito Acconci’s Turn-On becomes a blunt dialogue with the viewer: “It’s me.” “I’m waiting for you.”
