Video installation and billboard installation in public space | Screening dimensions variable | Duration: 8 min. 39 sec. / Format: 16:9 HD

In the course of a planed solo exhibition at the Artists Unlimited gallery in Germany I consulted three different fortune tellers instead to tell me my artistic fortune. Every fortune teller got the same three questions: What is the vocational fortune going to be? What is the financial future going to be? Is the exhibition going to fail? The collected material is the textual base of my video Songs Of Fortune. It operates with the structure of an opera and was re-arranged and re-sung. On the visual layer I analyze the white cube situation of the Artists Unlimited gallery and question power structures. The Artists Unlimited Gallery replaced by a venue of a Greek tragedy/comedy.

Parallel to the video work I installed (fake-) exhibition posters in the public space of Bielefeld for the non-realized solo show at Artists Unlimited gallery.
