“The Lord’s Prayer”
Music by Shiri Malckin from Israel
Lyrics and voice by Nina Maroccolo from Italy
Video art by István Horkay from Hungary
Horkay’s art is epitomic in the double meaning of the word: a fragment, an incised part of something already in existence, and – just because of this incision – is an injury to the finished surface, to the tangle of writing or a finished picture. This relies on the experience that man, handing himself down through signs, simulates a kind of sense-wholeness. In these series this textual sense-wholeness appears to be ever different as different colors enter the surface at different sites. It is the same and not the same at the same time. “Once the signs are scars, then the wounds will tell tales of some non-alleviated history” (D. Kamper – Zur Soziologie der Imagination Hanser V. 1986. p. 148).
