Knieholz 001 – Video Performance

25.05.2020

Here comes my very first video performance. It's a one-take video art performance featuring one of my Knieholz sculptures. You can find a small preview on my Instagram page or watch it in full lenght on Youtube following this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0scROSMlWEo&feature=youtu.be


Each Kneeling Log has been gilded in traditional gold-on-gesso technique and features a mantra carved or written on the sculpture.
Here is Knieholz 001 (2019) that comes with the text:
“May suffering be my food, may sweat be my unguent. May suffering nourish me, heal me, give me light, give me wisdom, cover my nudity.”
