Artistic contribution

to Cultural versus National Borders

Szabolcs KissPál

„Rever (DE)“

„Installation Kunstverein Neuhausen“

Rever usually consists of an outdoor object, and an indoor video-projection. The object is a strangely coloured banner placed outdoor. A videocamera is pointed through the window glass upon the object, in a large frame composition that shows the flag together with a part of the environment details of the building, cars, trees, people. The live video signal is projected onto the gallery wall or screened on a monitor. The camera is set up to invert the colours of the picture, so we see a live but negative world, with an image of the national flag in the middle. The installation is part of a series in which colour inverted national flags are installed all over the world. 9 projects have allready been completed (Germany, Hungary, Italy, Finland, Moldavia, Romania, Slovakia, United States, The Netherlands)
