Announcement Respice Finem

April 2018

The video installation Respice Finem is completed after one and a half years. The series consists of five works.

The theme of the video series Respice Finem (lat. Think about the end) finds its origin in the biblical story Sodom and Gomorrah, which deals with destruction as punishment for a wicked and godless way of life. Only the family of Lot is saved from above, provided one order is obeyed during the flight: you will not look back. However, Lot’s wife cannot control her curiosity and yet she looks back; she deforms into a pillar of salt.

Not being able to resist curiosity, this is a quality in human nature that can have disastrous consequences – as in the case of Lot’s wife – but can also produce “timeless” moments.

Respice Finem consists of the following video works:

Circulus Vitae
Ars Moriendi
