| Video+Performance, 2015 || Two Channel HD, 3 Performers, 60 minutes |

    The video installation and live performance do not represent moments of forgetting as much as they depict processes of the re-construction of individual memory. In the first part, the spectators are invited by performers to explore everyday acts against the backdrop of a video projection. Like the film images themselves, they are dedicated to particular objects such as a broom, a candle, or a shovel. In the second, spatially separated part, the spectators see the slightly modified images showing the interactions of their successors at the same time. A sound track complements the visual narration with personal fragments of memory on war, displacement, and the Holocaust from the perspective of a storyteller. The spectator’s achievement of memory is challenged in two ways: the individual’s own capacity for memory in relationship to images and acts they have carried out themselves a short while previously, that is, the reconstruction of past from the present, is interrogated at the same time as the “overwriting” of memory with traces of the real or fictive stories of others. Furthermore, the work in various media reminds us that the constitution of memory not only relies on communication and the media, but is also shaped by it. > DOWNLOAD CATALOG
