Became a site-specific work that developed into a performative video installation. Details in the space gave her input to translate it into a kind of surrealistic dream. A simple fabric hanging in the tree can lead to a possible parachute landing. A man sitting across the water can become the voice that tells you more about the history of the location. Playing with theater and everyday life became a game, what is happening live or what is recorded before? What is there to see in ‘the now’? Or do we keep missing these moments when we place ourselves before a screen?
Kiana starts interpreting the space visually and responds with a design that fits the form and structure of the space. While she was there, the boats on the Oudegracht ensured interaction between her and the people. This was considered as something valuable and the connection can be felt in her work. It was her starting point and became an interplay with you as the spectator, them as the encounters, the space and her as a performer.
It’s an ongoing process of translating situations, a search to engage the spectator and invite a new type of audience by making them part of the work.
