TAKE CARE OF YOUR HANDS

2020, puppet film (video-loop 5:14 min, sound). Voice: Alex Nada. Part of the three-part installation TRIPLE PACK, shown at the Museum of Fine Arts (MdbK) Leipzig.

The self-portrait TAKE CARE OF YOUR HANDS refers to the painting "The Dying Man" by Lucas Cranach. It takes an intimate look at the topics of sustainability, mindfulness and environmental protection, the modern imperative for self-optimisation and the resulting contradictory feelings. Between TV show, self-help group and confession scenario, the video mixes found posts from internet forums with personal thoughts about the artist's own inadequacy.
