is a mourning and healing ritual re-living the COVID curves from 77 countries.
This was the first public 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 Zimbabwe, 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. Her personal ductus interferes with the curve symbolically, leaving space for the emotional quality of the line. Combined with a sequence of headlines and short news, the piece tries to capture a political climate focusing on diverse aspects of the crisis.
