Pathos, 2020

Music - Sonate Pathetique, Adagio Cantabile, Ludwig van Beethoven

Pathos is an animated story told through uploaded photos and videos. It tells a story about a lost yearning along the way through emotional fragments, made during the corona crisis. The narrative of Pathos is accumulating from recognisable geometric symbols of our daily life and nature. This guidance of empathy allows us to connect the distances between all of us. We would like to thank all the people who wanted to contribute their sensitive movements during this period. Without the content of the environment, Pathos would not have the connection.

ARAHH, 2020

Photography sculpture - Rob Polmann

Bach - Fantasy and Fugue in C Minor - Orchestral transcriptions by Respighi & Elgar

ARAHH ( All roads are heading Home ) - is a photography sculpture and film experience created in 2020. The human kingdom is guided by symbols and music that travel with us along the way. They are waiting for us to pick up their traces left behind on our way home. The composition is brought together by a process of music, words, body movement and image. This journey of performativity is a ritual in which I develop a collaborative friendship between these connected elements. The independently taken analogue photographs all have their authentic place and timing. The photos are not staged and edited in this spirit. ARAHH was specially made for the This Art Fair Truck, an COVID free alternative of the This Art Fair event in 2020.
