video installations

The video installations by Evelina Cajacob combine the fleetingsness of light projections with concrete actions: folding, wrapping and kneading. The hands fulfill the repetitions of their work with patience, while the fingers are producing decent sounds, touching the wool or fabric.
Evelina Cajacob's videos seem to be direct - especially because of the way they are presented on specific projected area, which is integrating the virtual action into the field of observation.

Evelina Cajacob's room installations have the same discreet ease as her videoinstallations and drawings. The attention is to the chosen materials, which the observer experiences in a fascinating way through the installations: delicate fabrics, finest fibers or paper saturated by wax.

drawings on the wall

Perception and time are playing a very important role in the artwork of Evelina Cajacob. Lines are curling in biomorphic forms or figures like knots or braids on walls or oversized papers. The time is also integrated in the formation phase because this always is an intensive process. The drawings on the walls often refer to the environment of their origins. Their directness is unpretentious and their ease lets the viewer start thinking.
