The work goes about the return and to be back to a point or situation in our lives. and how it can affect us in our lonely inner strife . Did we come voluntary or we were forced to return .It's all the same or did things changed and nothing is as it was before. Trying to pick up life and restart again. Memories can be come overwhelming. Finally to become isolated in our thoughts and memories. We leaving a situation or place and maybe we never return physical but our thoughts and mental state will return and bring us back.

About STOP LOOK GO a video and music performance

A selection of pictures from the interdisciplinary project STOP LOOK GO. In collaboration with the flautist Mrs. Yajoo Acharya (Bhaktapur, Nepal). The work combines music, video and performance. The theme of the work relates to the city of Kathmandu and its social and urban environment. The city is reflected and interpreted through metaphorical images, improvised performance and flute music. The live premiere took place on November 21, 2021 at the renowned Mandala Theatre in Kathmandu, Nepal. There will also be an edited art and performance video version.

Subjects related to urban issues in my work have a vision towards identity, relationships (between human and human-environment), transition, crossing borders, inner strife, limits, loss, loneliness, sexual /gender issues, time, destruction, death.

the aim was in isolating these subjects respectively objects, cataloguing them, analyzing them and studying them in detail. Deepening the context in which they find themselves, how they differ from one place to another, neighborhood's or communities. How autonomous are the spaces or objects within the city and how they relate to and connect with each other.

Yajoo Acharya is a young female flute player from Bhaktapur which is 13 km away from Kathmandu . Her instrument is the traditional flute. She studied at the DEPARTMENT OF PERFORMING ARTS AND MUSIC OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALCUTTA, India
She interpreted and accompanied the images and live performance with a very personal and improvised flute play.
The curator was Neda Haffari from Space A Art Trust
STOP LOOK GO was the main part of my multi-part art project of the same title in Kathmandu, Nepal.

curators Javier Robledo y Marisol Bellusci

"koud slova"With Meer and Kees de Vries. The video hints on the idea that the conversation in the video is untranslatable, and that it doesn’t matter if you can only understand half of it, or none. It’s about the interaction  itself. Words / Slova - don’t matter as much. That’s why you don’t even have to understand the word Word (Slova) itself. and that the meaning arises not as much from words themselves, as from some sort of “being “ and interacting with one another, penetrating each other with waves of sounds and actions and mentally swapping our bodies in order to understand each other...

VideoBardo is one of the most important archives in this genre internationally. based in Buenos Aires.
VideoBardo is an independent poetry and art collective. Its objective is the dissemination, research and theoretical debate on the language of Videopoesia. It organizes the International Video Poetry Festival VideoBardo and has performed in important museums and cultural centers both on the cultural circuit and independently in Argentina, Uruguay, Colombia, Mexico, USA, Canada, Spain, France, Germany and India, establishing exchanges with other festivals.

EROS 24/7

 EROS 24/7

14th of October and 22nd of October 2021

Curator / Artistic Director Elias Kirsche (Basel, CH)

Between 14th of October and 22nd of October 2021 I participate at the Project Residence EROS 24/7 near the French/Swiss border by Basel, CH, in the village of Illtal, France

The aim of this project residency was that an interdisciplinary and mixed group of artists and non- artist should exploring for 8 days how erotic phenomena such as desire, seduction, lust, devotion, jealousy, play, death affect the inspiration and production of Art. Artistic means were one's own erogenous body, the written and spoken word, voice, movement, musical and visual techniques. What does erotic mean to us in its cultural-historical dimension? What role does the Eros play in the art, who, if one follows Plato and Socrates, mediates between the human and the divine world (cf. “Symposium”)? Using erotic art from different epochs and cultures, contemporary interpretations and implementations are to be proposed.

I created two personal projects in collaboration with Thomas Zollinger, Philemo Murkano, Elisabeth Schär, Tobias Gürtler and Mark Lüthi. As well I participated in several projects developed by the other participating artists.

Project No. 1 with  Thomas Zollinger, Philemo Murkano, Elisabeth Schär, 

Project No. 2 with Philemo Murkano, Tobias Gürtler and Mark Lüthi (camera)
