Have you already seen the Video Art Work by the artists @lea.und.adrian in the windows of our café? We highly recommend this to you.
The video installation draws you into an interior space that seems to know no outside. Across a table the two performers feed each other ...drop by drop, finger by finger the contents of a bottle of champagne. An act as intimate as it is absurd, a private and repetitive ritual, a serial contemplation on time, interior space and iteration.
Boundaries between the two persons are broken each time they touch and literally enter the other’s body. The act of sticking one’s finger into the other one’s mouth oscillates for the viewers between intimacy and violence. As the act is carried out reciprocally the two performers appear as equal agents of the game.
Regarding boundaries the video appears to be telling a story of both keeping and breaking them. The clock, the roast chicken on porcelain plates and the graceful bouquet of flowers on the white tablecloth evoke an almost bourgeois interior. The two performers are seated very much apart from each other, obviously separated entities in this sparsely coloured setting. Raindrops fall stoically across the screen, but never touch the two – they are separated from any outside world too. But by reaching out to each other, feeding each other (who knows in which manner, which motive behind) – they break the boundary.
