FOR THE SPIRITS OF THE EMPTY PLANES
video-installation including "No-Show"
Frankfurt LAB, Frankfurt am Main
FOR THE SPIRITS OF THE EMPTY PLANES is a cinematographic installation. It represents airport architecture on the basis of a film whose set emancipates itself from the element of plot. The video shows a walk through Frankfurt Airport. A lot of indexical elements about flight operations have disappeared: Signs are missing, corridors and moving pavements are empty. There seems no escape from the airport set. This is a piece about the lability of a system which appears as soon as indexical contexts are blurred. The title proclaims the non-participation in flight operations while, at the same time, the artwork demonstrates the inability to step out of them.
