Offnen progressive

A wall is constructed with always the same concrete piles. One to one is rhythmically abutted. While building up, concrete will be breaking open continually, until the process is ending and nothing else remains than a fresh start…. oeffnen_progressive shoes the final opening of a concrete wall. It puts together two former video-works “offnen” and “offnen_reinforcement” . They were cut out of the documentation-video of an Art action: ‘The artist is opening a concrete wall’. The video-installation dissects the nature of borders, the “in-between “. It examines the inseparable simultaneity of alleged contradictions: open – close? create – destroy, construction – expiration. The work of sisyphus. OEFFNEN_PROGRESSIVE has to be shown as an video-installation in an infinite loop.
