Memory of light - light of memory

(1998, 2 channel, 16:9 video video projection on wax coated screens, 14:00' loop, stereo sound)

 

A passage through a house of memory - the artist's mind upended: streams of thought are flowing through the corridors of a deserted house slated for demolition. They diffuse into the rooms and escape again in dazzling cinematic chases, out of a window into the open air, tumble down into courtyards and disappear in puddles, vehicles, passing landscapes and picture archives, only to be summoned back into the old, swaying house and a withering aloe vera plant.

 

This video shows the piece installed in the crypt of the Muenster Cathedral in Basel during the 2000 VIPER festival.
