Video, black and white, sound, 3 min Performer: VALIE EXPORT


Artwork text

A video showing VALIE EXPORT from the front behind a glass plate, on which she breathes “I love you.” The plate in the video and the plate of the monitor suggest a corresponding surface, comparable to the work called “Touching,” so that there is an impression that the breath is in “direct” contact with the set. (Sigrid Adorf)
