Vague Astronaut, or How to Get Lost (In Outer Space), 2009
resin, video, Dimensions Variable
The installation work Vague Astronaut, or How to Get Lost (In Outer Space) is a tragic figure, alone and looking into the sky, anxiously talking of his sense of being lost. The work makes reference to the state of affairs in our civilisation. It does not only pertain to the period of global crisis, or the crisis in some spheres of faith and science, but it concerns the general. Similar to the contemporary man, the figure is semitransparent, indistinct, vague...
In this work, I focus also on time. Broken-up pictures in slow motion suggest the direction of time, that we basically do not know. Time is an element, we have only a virtual control of.
