Proustification (Hiraeth) (2020)

Videoinstallation, hard disk drive with video ca 22 h, projector, foldable metalcase as projector support, notebooks

The work consists of a long video where I translate Du côté de chez Swann, the first volume of Proust´s “Recherches” from French into German without prior preparation. I hadn´t read or looked at the book before; my French is intermediate level, so there are recurring pauses, breaks and lingering while I speak. It is always in the same room, in darkness with a lamp.
