A QUIET PLACE (2020 / 2021)

The video installation “A Quite Place” shows people in their most vulnerable and most universal state: asleep. In this state, everything else is gone - roles, self-proof, activity. No consumption or production. A time for human recovery, giving the world some space for respite. We all are tired. This video work shows the fragility of our bodies and minds in a restless society that forgot where it was going. 

The work was created in collaboration with the Luxembourg artist Nora Wagner. It is part of the "Transition Days Luxemburg" project's series of contemporary art exhibitions "Are We There Yet?", with 9 international artists addressing the common theme "How can everyone live on one planet?".
