cataract version 2
The latex gloves are knotted together finger to finger and become a chain of touches. The hands grab one after the other and seem to be looking for bodies that could move in. The slightly transparent view behind the waterfall obscures the direct view and leaves behind blind spots. At the same time, he leaves the opportunity to look through certain places. Hundreds of latex gloves turn into a waterfall, into a coral reef that slowly turns in the wind and into a skin-colored curtain. Latex gloves are an emotionally charged material. They raise associations with hospitals, surgery and fear. They protect skin and blood from infection and are the shield between doctor and patient. Hygiene, safety and illness come together in a small glove. At the same time, the latex also brings with it the idea of sex and eroticism. Shiny skin, exciting forms, safe sex and pleasurable moments. The material becomes a second skin, stimulating the mind and body. The installation is also characterized by its smell. The latex odor increases in warm temperatures and also stimulates the olfactory senses with memories of sex and hospital.
