(2022) DISRUPTED FLOWS

Media installation with video projection into glass bowls filled with water, earth and an interview with Peruvian Matsigenka indigenous leaderships, Simeón and Ruben Rivera Perera.


Color, 04:02, looped.

Language: Spanish with English subtitles.


Near the conclusion of Artistic Research for my current Ph.D. project at Bauhaus University Weimar, the Corona pandemic broke out and I became isolated in the Peruvian Amazon forest. While trying to return to Germany, I was quarantined in a Matsigenka community. There, I had the chance to interview some of its leaderships, the brothers Simeón and Ruben Rivera Perera on the issue of water security. These narratives offer a counterflow to the western idea of progress.

The installation uses a mini video projector mounted above and concealed. The video file is mapped onto the bowls as a simulated 3-channel video.
