TIME + SPACE


Reality is gone. Only shivers of reality survive. Worst then modern times, e.g. collages of DADA artists. Shivers are so many times broken that they cannot be put together again in order to re-construct reality or an adequate image of reality.

That means, reality is lost, out of reach forever. Mental landscapes and theoretical assumption, ideologies take over uncontrolled forever.









THE CLOCKWORK TOY, single channel video, 2020, 4min 11sec

‘Clockwork Toy’ footage is based on footage shot on the occasion of this years Mardi Gras parade in Southern Germany. The Mardi Gras parade was held one week before the outbreak of COVID-19 in Southern Germany and Alsace, France. The footage has been altered to nearly abstract pattern. These patterns are oscillating between recognisable part [a mask, a part of a costume] and really abstract pattern, maybe similar to a kaleidoscope.

GHOST (FLOWERS)


Flower bouquets are full of passing away flowers.

During our lifetime we receive a huge amount of passing - away flowers. At least, to each of our birthdays one flower bouquet is given to us as a present.

So, our lifes are filled up with dead flowers, haunting us, coming after us.

THE DANCE 2

‘Dance 2’ footage was shot on an open air Berlin dancefloor in 2011. The footage has been remastered into more or less abstract patterns, which turn again and again over into recognisable parts of dancers. ‘Dance 2’ is a perfect example for the human basic need for socialising, which is interrupted now by the drive to distance from each other. Like in human relations this two drives are basic.
