Das Klohäuschen site specific installation by Evalajka Pervin.

Breathe in and breathe out
For Evalajka Pervin, our guest from Copenhagen, KloHäuschen is an interesting space to work on a site-specific project and unfold a video installation creating a room within the room. The site itself invites her to play along with perception and interpretation, that’s exactly what she intends to turn perception upside down when exploring the space. With Breathe in and Breathe out she explores the fields of claustrophobic small intimidating spaces.
She says about her installation: "Passing by KloHäuschen during daylight you will be able to see through a glass panel at the door, what one might expect is to see a structure providing a public space for urinal instead you will se a room covered with layers of bubble plastic inviting your senses to a voyage into a tight space with a video projection. If you listen carefully you will be able to hear a hypnotic struggling breathing filling out the space. As night falls the light streaming out from the panel and the small window on the side of the building will lure people to peep inside as voyeur almost feeling trespassing a hidden intimate sphere."
Evalajka Pervin (*1973) is based in Copenhagen working as a multimedia artist with focus on video art. The performative nature and playful approach is a vital key of Evalajka’s work.
