Hörreste/Sehreste – Homage to Paul Celan
3 channel video and installation
Hörreste/Sehreste: Homage to Paul Celan is an experiment in expanded poetry that adapts and translates a poem by Paul Celan from his collection Lichtzwang, into an inter/multimedia context. It records pianist Evgeny Ukhanov playing an accurate rendition of a series of complex musical compositions in the air. The installation involves a looped 3 channel video accompanied by a keyboard set in the middle of the room playing the Polka of the Bear.
