Ocean Currents


three channel video installation (15’) with sound, digital print on textile and online video

The work takes the ocean as an example to think about changing ecologies, more-than-human coexistence, and past and future modes of aging. It follows three different protagonists: an exhausted, bleached out coral, some singing sirens and an oyster. The latter awakens tired and disordered from dislocation in her new environment. In her half-awake state, she narrates about altering ecologies and her destiny as a fertile and never-tiring birthing machine, that will – in the end – be eaten alive.

Music: Luana Strauss, Christopher Matlik

Installation view at Dienstraum Kunstmuseum Olten, January 11th–March 2021. During the exhibition, a video was accessible for the comuting public.
