Title:

Prison

 

Short Description:

Performance art and video installation, based on the reproduction of the image of a single prison cell. The artist constructed a three-dimensional prison cell (2.5 m x 2.5 m x 3 m) and reproduced its image by using rear projection from a beamer on a frame (special construction made of a wooden frame with projection textile) next to it. The characters that appear in both cells (constructed cell and projected cell) interact with each other. At the end of the performance both of them escape from their cells. The final image of the performance show is the two empty cells. 

With the juxtaposition of the two cells (the three dimentional and the virtual) the artist attempts to comment on the differences, similarities and boundaries between a) the sense of confinement one person might feel in everyday life without being hold captive and b) the enforced by law imprisonment.
