Leftwing
2004, 3 min. (video, color, sound)

In "Leftwing", the artist transforms a typical school desk by sawing off the right half to reassemble it on the left. After finishing his work, he sits down on the chair, signs the table and, after due consideration, sticks a chewing gum under it. What the video shows, however, is not the already transformed desk, but the transformation process itself. The documentary camera, held far back from the shot, thus makes us forget that the real product, the work presented here, is neither an object nor the story of its creation, but a succession of digital images. The real work escapes attention: it is the different aspects of the nature of this work that are explored here. The action of sticking the chewing gum to the desk highlights the action of signing the desk, which here is brought to the level of graffiti and "TAGS". The conscious appropriation of everyday´s environment is opposed to the integration of the artistic work in an artistic context. In this context, the title provocatively poses the question of the importance of politics in Art. Art is seen as a field of experimentation of aimless transformations - underlined in the reassembling of the desk and the clumsiness of the actor.
