The MUTE – Museo Municipal Tecleño – is currently presenting my very new video installation “Get Fit With Dr. Lapschina”. I had the chance to transform three halls into a parade ground (or a gym, depending on your point of view). Visitors are bewitched by the possibility to grab simple tools or fancy stuff and reenact in realtime what they are seeing on the screen.
Meant as a comment on the zeitgeist, the videos discuss public health and literacy, gadgets and glamour.
The series, which has significantly enlarged since a first preview at Zorzini Contemporary in 2012, currently consists of seven channels. Requirements for showing: a silent projector or a big plasma TV, good stereo speakers and a subwoofer.
