RAINBOW TOURS / collective bordercrossing-ball game, 2011, Budapest action sequence of placing a rainbow-colored, spotted ball into embassies' territory
This series of actions is intended for breaching the perimeter of embassies with a dotted ball painted to the colors of the rainbow. International laws regarding diplomacy state that the territory of embassies officially belongs to their respective mother countries. Towers of outplacement in the war of bureaucracy. What if something trivial happens, an event unforeseen and ungoverned by any paragraph, like a dotted ball bounces over the fence and into the garden of an embassy? It is a bug in the system that can be amended in a single way; by throwing the ball back outside, without showing a hint of suspicion. Thus, by this deliberate, tactical frivolity, the hallmarks of power within our surveillance-based society fall victim to flippancy for a few minutes. These short and inconsequential events are meant to question the legitimacy of elite establishments; to express the desperation of the everyman who is exposed to the often dire consequences of power struggles spiraling out of control..
