NO INTERMISSION


… addresses cultural patterns and behaviour systems
in history and cross-culture
symbolisation of certain items
in context to the human being
how certain items receive iconographical relevance
tend to influence our visual perception
why do we see things the way we recognise
them considering particular cultural traditions

 

The single video installations and particularly in their relation to each other and to the viewer discuss sacred and historical imaging of everyday people. But other than to be reminded of historically acclaimed personalities one gets introduced to ordinary people, their feelings, their lives, their personal heroism, their anguish and fear, their faith and their beliefs. The video persons seem to walk up to the viewer, reaching out of the screen, invite the viewer into their worlds, their lives. The single persons display themselves like holy statues that move in a different space, which we/the viewer can’t reach.

In the bigger context of the “No Intermission” series, WALL-OBJECTS have been created in direct relation to some of the same-titled video installations.
