Save Event: Martin Jakob. It Would Go Around The Earth More Than Twice

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


What would be the length of the blood vessels of a human body once assembled end by end? Apparently, they would cover around 100 000 km long.


Not far from this ambition, Martin Jakob joins one by one cubits made out of his own forearm units; he combines materials, to hold the metallic vessels together. The rods deploy, fill and fit in the space step by step.  
It would go around the earth more than twice is a proposal by the Swiss artist Martin Jakob to invest the rooms of Display in space and time. Involving his own body and the ones of the visitors, the exhibition is thought as a process, open to the public during ten days, four hours a day. It is an invitation for the viewers to extrapolate their usual position in such situation; be involve and participate to the transformation, with visions and discussions, by sharing coffees, acts and listenings. The exhibition will be accompanied by a daily soundtrack made by Raphael Stucky.
