Walk the Cloud, 2020

.
Walk the Cloud explores the interplay of limited and infinite space, movement and seclusion and how community can unfold in restricted times.
Since the beginning of the pandemic of 2020, together with artist Eva-Maria Gugg (Austria), we produced a series of simultaneous performative walks in both countries.
The project wants to establish a digital community of artists on walking and wandering.

in the “Walk the Cloud” project, a bundle of paper strips, which Eva produced by cutting paintings and drawings of hers with a shredder on a quiet morning of the exhibition space at Schaumbad, makes its way in Greece. The bundle was carried by walking to the rocky, remote hills in central Naxos island, where the horizon appears unlimited.
There, the paper stripes go through a transformation to clouds or creatures invading the wide landscape.

Walk the Cloud will be presented as a two-channel video installation at Schaumbad.ateliers in Graz, Austria.
