video installation, BETA SP 2:00 1998
First time presented in I-20 Gallery, New York.
It is the cold winter day and the man is skating naked across the Baltic sea. It is the artist. Making many circles around the viewer and accompanied by a choral sung by his ten-year old son, he skates back and disappears into the white radiance from which he came.
Screen should cover the whole wall – 4x3 meters and the picture should start from the floor. The installation should be in a separate dark room. The sidewalls and the ceiling have to be painted white. Entrance should be from the side.
Other possibility for installing: to build a standing wall 4 x 3 meters and the picture has to cover the whole wall and start from the floor. Has to be separately from other works because of the sound.
Installation needs ordinary loudspeakers, DVD player, videoprojector (at least 2000 ansi). Distance between projector and screen – ca 8 meters.
