Our Nature

2017

‘Our Nature’ (performance); live piano improvisation played by the artist, accompanied by a silent video that has been shot in Greece, Bulgaria, Romania and Poland, in January 2017.

The locations that appear in the video all have their own interesting histories: The surrogate Lion of Piraeus; the restored pillars of the Acropolis; a deserted holiday resort called Sunny Beach; an imitation museum of authentic peasant architecture in Romania. The artist attempts to form an understanding of the reality of these locations from the perspective of a tourist and asks the question “How can we approach the past?”.
