Peter Ablinger:
HAND IN DEN REGEN HALTEN

1983/2013





HAND IN DEN REGEN HALTEN





The piece exists only in its title and for thirty years it even existed only in my mind. The moment for its release was in April 2013 facing a trip to the central-Iranian desert where rain is an especially precious event.


Although the piece - to be a piece - doesn't necessarily have to be performed, there was this moment on our way to the desert at the Basar of Esfahan where our guide, the video artist Shirin Abedinirad, executed the piece for me, by holding her hand under the light openings of the basar's hallway during the rain.
