The video installation Turbulence deals with a liminal state that feels eternal. The art work shows an animation of a plastic cup floating continuously in the air, in a room reminiscent of the inside of an airplane. This is accompanied by a silent monologue, appearing only as subtitles, by a person who is afraid of flying. It’s unclear who this person might be.
The work was originally conceptualized for an exhibition in a lift in Leipzig, which was never realized due to the pandemic. During the process of making the work, the artist drew from her own fear of flying and the existential anxiety, experienced by herself and her young colleagues, while also considering feelings of being locked up and the many moments, in which one asks oneself “when will it be finally over?”.
