Import Export

       |  dimensions variable, mixed media

        The work comprises of two parts:
       |  video "Import Export", 6:50 min,
       DVD video projection
       |  commercial inscription "Gastartbeit"
       on passenger car,
       Scotch tape 120 × 60 cm

With this work I am trying to set the relation between the real and the utopian space.
My real space of working is represented by the artistic phenomenon Gastartbeit, which I introduce by commercial inscription on the car. By irregular inscription, the colours of the letters, and the fact of placing the inscription on the car I allude to the multilayeredness of the phenomenon itself.

I construct my utopian space as a reflection to the real one and I place it in the gallery where the travel on the flying carpet is presented. Stills form video Import-Export 02, 09, 12, 16.
