Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale and so on. What may sound obvious, in a time where the corona virus determines our life and everyday life, means a vital rhythm. We are always aware of the fact that after the day comes night, and then the day again. My artistic activity in my studio or at home is more present than ever. How do you continue with my projects? How does the current situation influence my future pieces and exhibitions? Does it go on at all? If so, how?
During this time, when everyday life was restricted, I created a video project in which I make reference to previous experiments and works with air-filled balloons. Instead of soaking polyamide tights with epoxy resin and hardening over an inflated balloon, I put it over a balloon attached to a plastic tube and filled it with my breathing air. In a glass vase filled with water I let the breathing air escape through the tube and the water. The inhalation and exhalation as the main element of the video work was artificially cut together by forward and backward running video sequences. Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, inhale out.
