Opening on Wednesday 27th of April at 6pm
gr_und, Seestrasse 49 – 13347 Berlin

Liquid Perspective is a multichannel video and sound installation spread across the tunnel-shaped exhibition space of Gr_und. The camera follows a surfer from different points of views, and immerses the viewer in liquid matter.
The narration starts with the image of an excavator and dump trucks displacing piles of sand in order to prevent the water from submerging the land. The work addresses the intercorrelation between fluidity and the environment of global catastrophe we live in.
Further works placed at the entrance reflect on new technologies characterised by speed as the foremost logic of their own development. An abstract combination of images taken from the internet cohabitate with the materiality of our everyday monitors.
