Unica

2004

“‘Unica’ analyses Unica Zürn’s personality via an installation of different spaces of bizarre beauty or oppressive feelings - a must see!”
Stuttgarter Nachrichten

With ”Unica“, a performance based on motifs apparent in the life and work of Unica Zürn, Fabian Chyle questions the myth of the notion of the ”free individual“. Unica Zürn’s biography and work show a unique perspective on certain essential questions, such as: bound to ideals imposed from the outside world of how a ”woman“ / ”artist“ is supposed to live, Unica fails to live up to these expectations and, in the end takes her life. The time in between holds a wealth of creative artistic energy, but was also frequently spent in psychiatric institutions.
