These drawings were made in May 2020 in the midst of social distancing and self-quarantine. While the artist was grappling with the effects of the Corona pandemic, Burckhardt was conducting interviews with people all across the globe to understand what they were going through. And it was there that the artist's hands found their way in the clarity of these lines.

»I like to work in series – unfinished ones though. I start with an idea and try to manifest it throughout different periods into something concrete. This is why you will see repetition and complimentary photographs from different places and times. I tend to prefer this way of working because it allows me to continuously evolve an idea inside my head and explore a multi-faced approach towards it.«

Since the 15th of March up until the start of June, I found myself confronted by the importance of digitalization within documentation. Something that now seems like a distant and meaningless time frame. Isolation was not an issue, and I might dare say that in my personal case it was what I needed for myself and which eventually urged me to step outside of confinement. This form of experience, shared globally but for each individual it is purely with themselves, is where digitalization becomes almost necessary.

HABITAT

2020

I build a visual vocabulary based on familiar materials, forms and objects, which are used in a different purpose, so this practice helps me to create my own archive. For me it is important that the space I create becomes interactive and activated. I tend to produce work myself and to let the space for the coincidence and the development of materials themselves.

Isolation Intimacy Identity

2020

Isolation Intimacy Identity emerged in collaboration with The Queer Archive (www.thequeerarchive.com) in Athens.

This is escapism of course. But it is also an attempt to feel less alone.
Sometimes with a mere rotation, space measures itself out, devours, and spreads out anew in the memory of site, sound, and space

In the old days you used to come across glass window panels with a small hole to reach through in old school bank buildings, post offices and train counters. With the modern idea of service these objects became a rare encounter. 
Nowadays however you could see them pop up here and there in the super market, the corner store down the street or the print shop.

Conversation started slowly

2020

While being in a lockdown or being forced to face the outcome from the pandemic, I am always thinking about the past and the way we used to live. That’s not typical for me to overlook the past and search for some questions or answers there, but this time I am trying to predict the possible scenario of the future after the pandemic. Since when is it possible to guess what is about to come based on past experience ? For me it was never a thing. But still I am comparing the past times with the present. I don’t know what is going to happen in the near future, but all these times have something in common, at least for me. Before I was thinking about tomorrow, today I am thinking about tomorrow and tomorrow I will think about tomorrow. In the past I was trying to understand the yet unknown future, now I am trying to guess what kind of tomorrow will be interesting for me tomorrow. So the battle between bleak, predictable and unknown future rages on.

Shelter-in-Place is a series of one-hour long video performances I did in my Brooklyn apartment over two months in quarantine. I performed simple actions, often staying in one spot, fixating my gaze on one object, such as a clock, my own shadow or reflection. As life outside came to a halt, I wanted to stay even more still inside exploring issues of isolation, passing time, confronting myself and our new reality.

The Coronavirus is changing our relation to each other and affecting our perception of reality. This virus is very democratic: it spreads over the borders, has no preference for gender, social, cultural, or economic status. In this time of lockdown, we wonder about the mutation of our social life and the effects of the deprivation of physical touch.

Fighting against COVID-19, doctors might be exposed to the infection when masks and protection suits are in shortage. The Mobile PPS is a pneumatic space where doctors can treat patients in transparent protective space. It has constant positive air pressure, which means, the air flows only toward outside of the space, not letting the virus coming inside. The clean air supply is guaranteed by a ventilator located outside or in an extra decontaminated space.
AIR LOCK area keeps the air pressure and prepares doctors with disinfection procedures.

Choose Your Own Quarantine is a web-based game that is inspired by the Choose Your Own Adventure books series first made popular in the 1980s. There is a carefully designed breadcrumb trail of action and consequence, making a tangible visualization of the ways in which we are forced to reckon with our choices; here, each user may experience redemption and condemnation in equal part.                                                    read more >>

In search of a new visual language, Japanese artist Yuya Suzuki responds to the environment around him: minimalist amorphous shapes, semi-symmetric patterns and bright, blazing colours function like fragments or syllables of an unintelligible code. When viewed as series or as room-filling installation, Suzuki’s works unfold into a linguistic landscape that feels strangely familiar, yet cleverly escapes definitive meaning. Each image is created from a part of an actual city-scape, but the level of abstraction varies: from motifs that closely resemble the original to heavily abstracted patterns. His “archegraph studies” — a term he coined in 2016—  are visual texts that could also be described as an abstract syntax or musical pattern. Suzuki’s notes proliferate endlessly, defying a harmonious melody.    Read more >>

Megan King is a South African born artist, poet and selector creating under the name Lemonella. Her work has an alchemical quality to it; rooted in an intimate observation of the inner and outer environment, and then blending, mixing and combining diverse elements (including sound, poetry, video and collage) in a way that creates something new and more valuable than its separate parts. She is inspired by themes of sensuality, playfulness, subtlety, harmony and a return to earth reverence where these qualities are inherent.

Brad Downey is one of the free people. Not a throw-back but slightly out-of-place in these controlled times. He is from the US and so carries that weight around, but lightly, as though it is not such a burden as we know it to be. It is a kind of mentally athletic suppleness he has.  Read more >>

Nebieridze’s work is strongly emblematic of the condition of radical youth in contemporary Europe. These are the bodies right wing governments don’t want to see as a future face of Europe. He captures, with eloquent timing, images of genuine experience and honest connection between friends and muses, moments of heightened emotion and loss of control. These flashes of beauty during an after party or a brief encounter on the street document a youth in search of love, self discovery and liberation and examine fragments of everyday life in timeless fashion.  Read more >>
