Al Buraq the legendary winged horse, is galloping above the Arabian desert towards Jerusalem. Night, and the Holy City’s sites gradually give place to the Wailing Wall, where Al Buraq is ascending high to the sky, turning – like Pegasus – into a stars-constellation while dropping down white feathers.

DER ERLKONIG

 

2017. A video Installation Documentation.
06:21 Minutes Loop.

A panoramic representation of a German-green forest is screened on a long wall. From within the wood there emerges a bent green figure covered with branches and leaves, walking slowly among the trees, shedding branches and leaves along its way. Reaching the end of the frame, it bends down at the foot of a tree and is embed in it. All along, following the leaves-figure, a ghostly female figure appears - half transparent, dressed in white. She patiently gathers the branches and leaves that were dropped from the green figure. When she reaches the final tree into which the green figure was embed, she kneels and put down the gathered branches and with her breath ignites a fire that soon spreads over the whole forest and destroys it with high flames. Snow starts to fall, when, behind a nearby door, hands dig-out a box from the ground, inside which is projected the opening scene from Citizen Kane together with the words: "Rose bud...".

There, where beginning is also the end; There, where the womb is also a crypt; There, at the center of "Khora" - the Great Mother, birth-giving and devouring; There swims lapis-Lazulis - The Fish of death, also the fish of wonder and miracle. From within the abyss Lapis-Lazulis conveys its secret silent gospel.

While advancing, the figure sprays along the way red fluid from the tank,now being the scapegoat as well as the High Priest who purifies with blood.

LITTLE HANS FOUR HORSEMAN

2013. A Video Projection.
02:46 Minutes Loop.

 

The screen is misty, something between fog and black-and-white pixels ‘snow’. A low monotonous and mysterious sound is heard, while a horizon-line is slowly appearing. Are we watching a desert and sky, a snowstorm, a sea? Slight bursts of colors quickly fade into black-and-white, returning to the misty semi-abstracted blurred view. From within the distance there moves up towards us an undefined entity. Is it an island, a ship, human figure? Gradually the entity (often fading and blurred into the surrounding) is nearing only to be identified as a horse with a face-less she-rider. A ray of white light glitters from the horse's forehead. Parallelly, appearing from  the distance - one after the other, in and out of focus - another three women-riders, each being specified by a different color - green, black, red, white. Rays of white light shine from all the horses' foreheads like horns. The four faceless riders gallop towards the camera until they fill the screen. Being face-less, the tricky-evasive-ambivalent landscape keeps on being seen through them, until the four riders disappear into nothingness which will be followed by a new start of the loop.

NAUTILUS

2010. A Video Installation Documentation.
02:52 Minutes.


Three large simultaneous projections. The first on the left shows a black big entrance to a cave. from time to time a twinkle of light is flashing out towards the spectator. The second projection shows a Nautilus shell emerges from under the sand to the surface. A female figure appears, slowly crawls her way out. The third projection shows a huge wave endlessly curling into itself. A change appears when in the second (main) projection the female figure reaches the entrance of the shell. Then, the image fades out and appears again in front of the open sea while the figure is listening to a shell. At the same time a harsh blinding light reveals itself on the other two screens, and gradually whittens out the images until they fade out.

2009. A Video Projection.
02:49 Minutes Loop.


Rails crosses the image. A train is approaching. The frame is filled with its smoke. As it passes through, a woman figure emerges from the fading smoke. She is digging in the sandy ground. While digging all of the sudden water starts gushing out from the hole covering the ground. When it finally settles inside the boundaries of the rails, it transforms into a small river. The rails wooden boards also transform and become a raft. The woman is climbing on it and sits down while the raft is sailing away toward its new unknown journey.

THE POOL

2005. A Video Installation Documentation.
03:24 Minutes.


A video projection of an enchanting pool surrounded by natural dry leaves. The pool undergoes transformations of time and weather until an enigmatic figure emerges from within the water.
The pool that reflects the time changes simultaneously embodies the secrets of life and creation along with death and decay. This installation relates to Bialic's Poem ’The Pool’ while keeping its organic mythic entity and linking it to the multicultural fairy-tale traditions; however, the latter become a personal experience of metamorphosis.
