The broken column, 2011
3: 4, loop, 1 video channel, 1 audio channel

The installation references the homonymous painting „The Broken Column“ by Frida Kahlo in the year 1944.

Following this template the video is designed as a tableau vivant, with a slight movement in the image, a sound track and two changes in the scene: the broken (spinal) column is a movie prop of an ancient column in real space, and in its stead in the video a rifle is lashed to the body: A shift of the symbolism from personal suffering to general violence.
