“Isn’t it conceivable that some people do suffer from a soul-driven substance that brings about their downfall?” – these words by Honore de Balzac built the fundament of a poetry based video art series about human isolation and loneliness, called “Approaches to Loneliness”. “Melancholieverstand” (Melancholy Intellect) is the first part of the series and has been built on the german translation of a medieval ballade by the poet Francois Villon – “Ballade to a faithless friend”. It deals with the individual’s pain and suffering caused by a failed love.
