All We Have
In February 2019 all Marika and Anton's personal belongings were distributed using the particular topological matrix and captured on eighty-three slides for being installed as a projection on the table.
After a half-year slow drift down the Indochina from the islands of northern Vietnam through the wilds of Laos, we got stuck in the house of a village healer in the remote province of Thailand. The quantity and proportion of our personal belongings have always attracted our attention, and it seemed interesting to fix our material condition: 83 things were the entire property of ours at that time.
The Topological Matrix.
This scheme was also used for the Six Stones performative Installation.
