ICH BIN KEIN FISCH (“I’M NOT A FISH”), 2006
Roland Wegerer, Video / video installation, DVD, Mini DV, 3:30 min (loop), 4:3, sound
The video performance shows the artist trying to enter the water as a new habitat. Because of his anatomical characteristics it is not possible for him to remain for a longer periode of time under water. The absurdity and the failure of these attempts are also intensified by turning the video upside down.

THIS IS MY VOICE, 2010
