How To Go Through Something You Can't See

Video installation, video projected on shop windows, 2,8 x1, 5m, 21:34 min (loop), 16:9, no sound, 2007

A larger than life face rubs on the window glass. The glass of shop windows is a barrier which must always be clean and not contaminated. Touching the glass is a taboo. Shop windows are more and more secured with alarm systems. The boundary between inside and outside is almost invisible and impenetrable. By the pressure and the friction that is exerted on the glass, the face looks distorted. Additionally body fat and saliva make the window dirty.

How To Clean A Puddle

HOW TO CLEAN A PUDDLE

Video, DVD, Mini DV, 1:42 min, 16:9, sound, 2008

By excessively jumping into a puddle a final result will be achieved. What has ended in childhood after a few jumps is completed in this video. Water, mud and the black clothes generate short sculptural qualities and enter into opposition to their social definition. The radical intervention into the puddle of water, the intensity of the jumps and the soiled pants tell a story that takes us back to our childhood.

Ich bin kein Fisch

(I’m Not a Fish)
Video / video installation, DVD, Mini DV, 3’30min (Loop), 4:3, Sound, 2006

This video performance shows the artist trying to enter the water as a new habitat. Because of his anatomical characteristics it is not possible for him to remain for a longer periode of time under water. The absurdity and the failure of these attempts are also intensified by turning the video upside down.
