Project type: Diplom
'A Pool Painted Black' was a project in three parts. The first part was a performance in Athens made together with Peter Cant called 'A Pool Painted Black'. The second part was an exhibition in Cologne called 'Walking Through Clear Water'. The third part was a publication called 'Misunderstandings'. 1. A Pool Painted Black: A one take feature length film improvised live, shown as a work in progress at Athens Museum of Queer Arts on 2nd and 3rd June, then performed in full at Atopos, Athens on 5th and 6th June 2017. c. 90 mins 2. 'Walking Through Clear Water': This installation develops on the conceptual focus of the performance works 'A Pool Painted Black' and 'Kustom Kar Kommandos Karaoke', dealing with the ambivalent idea of how that which is consigned to the dirt will one day be reclaimed and renewed. The neglected object is transformed by the very moment in which it is unearthed. The title of the installation is taken from the book 'Walking Through Clear Water In A Pool Painted Black' by Cookie Mueller. 'Walking Through Clear Water' was developed on site at the Flex Zone in Cologne and was on show there from 19th to 22nd October 2017. 3. 'Misunderstandings': An artist’s book of conversations about misunderstanding. Harold Offeh, Peter Cant, Melissa E. Logan, Clare Molloy, Mi You, and Felicita contributed to this book. It was published in November 2017 and is distributed by Pro QM, Berlin and Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln.
