"Crystal Clear" (2021) carries the experiences of Nita Tandon, a female artist who migrated from India (a member state of the Non-Aligned Movement) to Austria in the 70s. Her story is vocally performed by Tyrolean author Annemarie Regensburger. By weaving the story of a foreigner in a local tongue, the work unsettles the status of belonging embedded in the performance of a dialect. The artist questions expectation for a performance of ‚authentic‘ identity and points her finger inwards the fuzzy borders within, between us/them.
The installation is in German with English subtitles.
The publication is in Tyrolean, translated into German by Astrid Tautscher and designed by Hannah Sakai.
Sound editing by Huda Takriti.
