Dear friends of Avantart!
Time runs fast and the quiet days between the years offer the chance to relax, reflex and ponder. I planned a 3-weeks-holiday in winterly Russia, but because of some Visa-Misunderstandings, we got no stamps in our passports. So I stayed at home and planned a lot: to upgrade the computer, to read a big pile of books, and many things more.
At the end it was a quiet time, I read, worked at my webprojects, met some friends and made a short sea-cruise to Sweden. A good time.
Ausgesungen means "a finished song" and is the title of one of my works.
I prepared this work for the festival Kukart in Tsarskoe Selo in summer 2001. I combined therein photographs, which I made in Tsarskoe Selo myself, with parts of a poem by Felix Philipp Ingold.
Unfortunately, this work was stolen from the walls.
There is a box available with 6 PhotoWorks after the poem Ausgesungen von Felix Philipp Ingold, translated into russian language by the poet Ilya Kutik.
And now the Web-version in german and russian language is online. Have a look!
Monostichi is the name for poetry, which consists of only one line. This form is very much in use in russian poetry.
2 years ago, Felix Philipp Ingold published a collection of monostichi by contemporary russian authors, Geballtes Schweigen.
This anthology inspired me to produce the photo-text-installation Photostroki, which means Photo-Lines in english language.
February 2002, the be a box with 22 prints in russian language will be ready.
This work was shown in Moskau from May to June 2001, now the Web-Version in german and russian language is online.
