At the invitation of the Swiss non-profit organisation Moving Culture, I travelled to Kyrgyzstan in 2012. Originally anchored in nomadic culture, this Central-Asian country is marked by poverty and structural problems. There is a huge conflict over water resources, but also about the raw material gold. The installation Tunduk (tunduk is the opening in the roof of a yurt and is the symbolic connection between life and the cosmos) is dedicated to these conflicting priorities. The work was created for the Kunstmuseum Thun in cooperation with the Kyrgyz artist Shaarbek Amankul.
