Productive Work…

Productive Work…

What is it supposed to be –– is the title of an exhibition at the MuseumsQuartier, Q21, frei_raum in Vienna, June 28 until September 2, curated by Anamarija Batista. I am part of the show with two rather personal ‚auto-pathographic‘ works: Bone Work and Preservation. I explore healing as a productive process and the patient, although sleeping during surgery, as an active part of the procedures. Working with and on the removed bone – holding a bone in my hands that has been inside of my body for 50 years – is quite unusual. I examined its surface, the hole that the surgical instrument has left on the bottom, its color, with the lust of a little child. With the intention to bring my experience together with the object that is actually not so easy to accept as part of myself. I am still very much in the process… of healing, thinking, working and meditating.

Mikrogramme

  Standbilder: C. Lammer   Inspiriert von Robert Walsers Mikrogrammen entstehen dreiminütige Videos von alltäglichen Situationen. Gesten werden im Alltag aufgespürt. Beim Schneiden von Gemüse oder Kämmen der noch nassen Haare. Als physisches Phänomen und Teil jeglicher Handlung.  Die Standbilder sind einer Serie (digitaler) Kurzfilme entnommen: Mikrogramme / 3 Minuten täglich, 2017. Christina Lammer Continue Reading
