The Source 2014

HD, 5-channel projection, 25:25 min, with sound.

The Source is a five-channel video installation negotiatinh the immanent contradictions in human nature. We exist as a series of simultaneities: nature and reason, body and mind, singularity and difference, individuality and culture, and exploring these relations in a free and self-conscious manner requires, as this work argues, a pure interaction – as bodies – with nature. The different projections follow two groups of women walking towards a volcanic hot spring. All the man-made, artificial differences between people are levelled and nothing is left in this primordially elemental landscape than the bodies in all their naked sympathy.
