Stones

Naturally Heindl has to act quickly to avoid being prevented from carrying out his acts, as when he scrambles up the bodies of statues or when he throws a stone to measure the world. At first his action Stone seems relatively harmless, when it takes place in the middle of the desert – comparable to a land art project. He ruptures the endless expanse by throwing a stone. But subsequent variations on this action lead him ever deeper into the city. The stone strikes the fencing of a construction site, a back-hoe excavator, a well. The stone flies into a ditch, loudly smashes against a package of laundry detergent or displaces the perspective of a public surveillance camera. (Christa Benzer)
