The Corona crisis is demanding from people around the globe to reduce their social contacts in order to avoid a rapid spread of the virus. The Wake-Up! Memorial was inviting audio-visual artists to submit one work – video and/or soundart – dealing with this – hopefully temporarily limited shut down . The new show case is representing an act of solidarity for the victims of the pandemic and a warning alike addressed to the human population on Earth to rethink the current values of the individual and the society as a whole. Corona! Shut Down? is representing a new exciting film collection including more than 180 audio-visual works.
Two works were presented at the Alphabet Cinema.
These two videos have been extracted from installations and repurposed as reflections on the 2020 “Corona crisis”. Washing takes hand washing as a perpetual loop to a level of obsessiveness. First Gaze reflects on the moment of awakening in slightly slowed motion as we gaze at ourselves and take stock during shutdown.
