GOLDENER KÄFIG
(GILDED CAGE)
2008 video

For this artwork an iron cage is hung in an old, dead oak during a bright summer day. Little by little I start to gild the locked aviary from the inside. A mirror serves me to check my work, however at the same time it offeres me a view on my own situation in this narrow prison in the midst of the beautiful nature. During the gold coating I sing a German folk song which is about "the search for the blue flower".
