Shaman is a video installation which projects well-known footage of the artist in his signature hat and vest striding resolutely towards the viewer. The image is projected onto a fine spray of mist that serves as a projection screen. Beuys, perhaps the most influential artist after Duchamp, appears to shimmer as he approaches. Yet at the same time, due to the vagaries of the water spray, he seems to dissolve back into uncertainty or into “the mists of time.”
