2010 video- and soundinstallation
linz / austria
2010 in exhibition "hässlich?" at gallery
salzamt / linz / austria
In the videoinstallation “affenzirkus” people disguised as animals are giving answers to the question what they do find ugly about their own human bodies.
As there supposingly is no self-doubting and no uglyness in the perception of animals, the bear, lion or capricorn philosophing critically about it's body, makes the spectator smirk, but still he is listening to humans talking about their outer deficiencies. The work plays with the closeness between tragedy and comedy.
