Laufrad (Trailing Wheel)
Installation in the Gallery 1:10, hosted by Air de
Projectionspace: 60 x 40 x 30 cm
The gallery 1:10 is now hosted with its fifth show by the gallery Air
de Paris. The invited artists have created site specific works for this
1:10 scale model of a fictitious gallery space.
In her Installation "Laufrad" (Trailing Wheel) Alena Meier interprets
the projectionspace of Gallery 1:10 as a behavioristic laboratory cage.
The viewer is mirrored by a projector with an upright slidemagazine, behaving
seemingly alive. Both gaze through little holes into the fictious gallery.
By means of a real mirror image and imageproducer (projectorlense) merge
into one. Shown are 100 pictures (1 per sec) of two mongolic desert-mice,
trying to get out of the model of the very same projectionspace. The highly
overexposed photos, which give no space to feelings of cuteness at all,
show incidentally the various working-approaches
of the artist.
