Lines in Transparency
2014 / HD 16:9, 10min / Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition, 2017
We shot Lines in Transparency in an office glass building, in Frankfurt am Main. The script was inspired by the novel The Grey Cloth And Ten Percent White: A Ladies Novel, (1910) by the fantasist and visionary writer, Paul Scheerbart.
Clara Krug only dresses in grey with ten percent white, a contract made with her husband, Mr. Krug, a famous glass architect. Clara is living in his glass architecture.
The sound poem KIKAKUKO! performed by Stephanie Engel, is written by the same author.
