Vienna Design Week 2018 – Voyage Around My Room

Video installation in an endless loop.

What do the walls of the Kenyon pavilion in the former Sophien hospital, which dates back to the times of the monarchy, tell us if you stare at them long enough? Xavier de Maistre's novel "Voyage autour de ma chambre" ("Voyage Around My Room") from 1794 is a fantastic miniature journey by an author sentenced to 42 days of house arrest and thus to immobility, who, trapped between his furniture, can only "travel" from one wall to another. The decline of a class is reflected in the disempowerment of the body, but it is precisely this that can lead to an incurable outburst of imagination in a hospital. Precise perception, memory and reflection make the smallest details of a room as big as the world.
