Focus Roman Signer

Projection (in a loop) — Vers la flamme — Ein Konzert mit Störung (2014, 8’40’’)

Roman Signer’s workshop is the countryside, for him it’s a place of experimentation, inspiration and source of material. It comes as no surprise then that he had chosen the Vernagter lake for one of his performances. A lake, a piano and a raft constitute the setting in which the young Islandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson makes an appearance.
