Site specific installation
Aluminium door, video projection
Dimensions: aluminium door 230cm x 150cm
Aluminium door is fixed on the entrance of St.Thomas Church in Rovinj. A little round window exposes the interior of the church filled with water with a man constantly immersing into it. It’s actually a video recording that is projected onto the window showing underwater shots of the jumps into the water. By immersing himself into the water the man, in effect, immerses into the empty gallery space stressing the contradiction between the physical emptiness of the gallery and the fullness of the illusory image of the water in the projection. The moving body of the man creates a play in which the empty space of the gallery becomes the space filled with water, whereas a new space opens up to the man beyond the physical limits of the walls.
