The HeArt is Present

PTS-Pandemic​ (German)


This is the first public video-performance by Regina Frank The HeArt is Present after the COVID 19 Lockdown. A white dress features the COVID development Curves of 77 selected countries, from Afghanistan to Yemen, according to the Corona Virus Pandemic Data Explorer at ourworldindata.org.
In contrast to the cold lines of the data development graphs Regina paints the lines by hand following the movement of the graph as closely as possible. She gives each country a different color and marks the name of the country in calligraphic handwriting close to the hem. Her personal ductus interferes with the curve symbolically, leaving space for the emotional quality of the line.
