Or-phelia - A Transformation Piece (...Ein Transformationsstueck)

Ulrike Rosenbach

1988, 35:00 minutes, colour


During the performance held in the underground parking garage of the Staedtische Galerie at Prinz-Max-Palais, Karlsruhe, Rosenbach unveils a pillar of monitors. The three monitors combined depict Or-phelia, a pale translucent female figure, rotating slowly against a pulsating bed of arteries and veins.
The performance is the artist's improvisation on the topic of Orphelia.
