”Endroit touché; telepatie”
was the one man exhibition in Sielska Gallery, Strasbourg, France, 1999
Prior to setting up the installation, I made a video of a CT scan of my own brain. Isotopes showed up on the scan pictures showing which areas of the brain were being used at a given moment. For the installation, the film of the scan was emitted on two small monitors which were suspended opposite each other at head height.
On both monitors the scan pictures rotated slowly in a trance-like rhythm. Beyond them, in darkness were two empty beds with pillow-shapes painted in luminous paint, which glowed. The whole installation was an attempt to explore traces of being and non-being (the empty beds), rational (the scan) and my irrational thoughts, unemotional (medical science) and emotional (the privacy of the bed, the privacy of thoughts)
Technique – during the exhibition: two videos screened on small LCD monitors, second room: two empty beds with pillow-shapes painted in luminous paint, flash light;
