in collaboration with Abdullah Miniawy
premiered at the „Echoes“ Festival

The video work I AM IN THE SEA NOW is based on a poem by Abdullah Miniawy and was developed in collaboration with media artist Justin Urbach. The poem is dedicated to the arduous process of a poet searching for inspiration after losing his connection to his mother tongue in exile. The video installation takes up the poem thematically, reacts to it and expands it on its own cinematic narrative level. The process of washing, of cleansing the body, is reinterpreted as a ritual of liberation from conventions and was expanded with performative-installative scenarios at the Festival "Echoes" displayed at the Haus der Kunst Munich in March 2022.
