Leak is a space-consuming installation, that centres on a container-like construction is covered by muddy stains, caused by leaking water. On the outside of this construction air-conditioning units remain dysfunctional, creating a noticeable stillness: over here circulation has temporarily come to a hold. Inside we find a cramped cabin where a video work plays, that shows water as an entity with a changeable character. From it’s controlled usage in domestic hygiene and care, it becomes unpleasant when pipes leak and other lifeforms start to germinate. The water swells, moves uncontrollable and turns what seemed sturdy into something helpless and light. Thereby making attachments visible right before they snap. The environment that we enter looks like an actual home, but was built in the artist’s studio, to create a time capsule that will only persist as a video. While closely scanning this environment with her camera, we become aware of pots and towels that have been placed by someone in a last effort to stop the flood. At other times a spectral presence seems to enter the stage, moving through bodies and architecture, leaving signs for those willing to receive them. The installation with the accompanying video and sculptural elements is an expansion of consciousness, a representation of the oppressive reality of our mind. While the work can be seen as a personal way to deal with the past, it resists any retelling that simplifies a lived experience. Instead Leak offers a site of speculation where a period of mourning and feverish creation – or feverish creation as a form of mourning – temporarily crystallizes. Text by Fabian Schoneich
