kolunse - fire in the movement
description of the installation

In the gallery the floor has been covered with soil.
From the ceiling to the sink hangs a half pillar of milky transparent material. Onto the pillar a video is projected. The video shows
a figure from head to toe in front of a three part background. The figure wears a light flowing garment. When the figure turns the background changes, too. With the turn the figure performs a locality change at the same time. She is confronted with situations with other human beings, greets, says good-bye and turns again. The background consists of three different levels of landscape which have been copied into each other in videographically.


Torsten Bruch tackles with individual mythologies after the End of the Great Stories, here he watches in body pictures the psychological development of the self as well as re-stages relicts of the Great Stories. In tableaux vivantes figure and pose
stand as example for a subjective observing in the face of a consuming society.
The handed down term of paradise, what the year project for 2005 of the EINSTELLUNGSRAUM e.V. deals with, is connoted
by Torsten Bruch with the possibilty of movement, that is with the possibility to turn around.
On 03.02.2005 Torsten Bruch will give some insight into his way of working.  On 10.02.05 at 7 p.m. the exhibition will be opened.
