Failed Escape

Site-Specific Audio/Video Installation

SPEICHERn, Potsdam, Germany 

2022

Failed Escape is a recorded performance that remembers the pigeons who resided at the abandoned seed silo located on the outskirts of Potsdam, Germany. The audio was recorded on-site, capturing the disturbing sounds of the pigeons trying to escape through closed windows, bashing themselves repeatedly against the glass. The video illustrates the artist mimicking the birds, running against the window again and again.
