Sequence of a Horse in Motion (VR)

Virtual Reality installation

 

The Virtual Reality installation “Sequence of a Horse in Motion” is the documentation of a dream by the artist. It follows the live art installation by the same title, in which a performer is hanging upside down and being circled by a horse. Using a VR headset, the spectator is invited to assume the performer's position as they step into the artist's original dream sequence. Reproducing the fleeting imagery of dreaming, this work challenges the ephemeral nature of both live art and dreams in an experiment with reenactment and reactivation.

 

 

The VR installation “Sequence of a Horse in Motion” was funded by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and the Senate Department for Culture and Europe as part of the residency programme schloss bröllin e.V., supported by the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and the district of Western Pomerania-Greifswald as well as the  Edith Maryon Foundation.
