Art Will Absolve Me, 2008
sand, videoprojection of animation, Dimensions Variable, Duration Variable
Art will absolve me is a video installation consisting a a pile of sand, as if poured out of an hourglass, and a projected animated spiral mantra.
The work is concerned with the highly commercial 'self help' industry and especially books like 'The Secret'. By applying this method to an art piece I wish to question the power of the art object, which often is applied magical properties on its own.
