Inside the Lacuna

Solo-show at Oracle

November 2015 Berlin


For the solo-show at Oracle, I developed a very much interweaved work that consists out of two prints on fabric, a steadycam sculpture, a video film with the sculpture from the prints and the short story "Inside the Lacuna". They all tell the same story and lure you into the crystal world and the passion for filming with steadycam.

 

The following is the beguining of the story which was also publish by montez press in there monthly online publication "Interjection#1". Follow this link to read the full story and some more.

The extension of a body begins with a mutual act of balancing out the new companion. Feeling and being felt, sensing its gaze and staring back, reacting and conducting, a beautiful maze of getting to know each other, valuing mass and volume, function and structure. A dance with the other that forms a new state of being. A sensation of devotion or rather an experience of merging and sharing the lead.


 

 

 

Weight is a unique sensation that tells you a lot about the other and affects the way you move and use your body, gliding along the cut wavy surface. Giving you the chance of finding the balanced space between the cells and float inside the lacuna. It is the weight, as the physical sum of a body, that lubricates the path for a perfect glide.
With the steady spread of crystallization, a certain calmness comes into the hasty world of moving beings. Glee and trust are what overcome most living souls as they inhale and touch the crystal crust and its spreading vapor. It’s gorgeous to see the frozen smiling faces shimmering through the thick slates of crystallized turf, ice-wrapped trees and houses, as well as the still moving beings looping in graceful jumps of joy, trapped in the present moment. All detached from continuous time.
