In co-production with Kike García Roldan

Following the piece In between (1999) Gegen die Zeit is another installation for the secularized Johanneskirche in Feldkirch.

The video projection depicts a female arm holding either a brush or a piece of cloth. It moves across the surfaces of the slightly darkened interior of the nave. A churning sound is perceived while the hand moves around.

The clash between the specific architecture and the projection creates three-dimensional distortions of the image, which reshape real space. The projection itself is conceived not as a frame, as a window, but rather as a movement of unfettered images. This creates the feeling of an image set in motion through the movement of the projected body part.

The projection into the nave is made via a computer-controlled mirror device. Taking into account that the length of the video loop and the mirror's movement interval do not match, the projected sequence and the motion in the space will always assemble in a new way.
