Blood-Letting

Aderlass is a youthful attempt to process the inheritance of the Vienna Actionists using a Super-8 camera. A performance is staged in front of the camera by Armin Schmickl Sebastiano. (Peter Tscherkassky)

A game with light and sound that explodes from a state of serenity into an ecstasy of movement, ultimately gliding back into immobility with the “blood-letting”. (Irene Judmayer)

Reckless, raw, and highly personal, in Aderlass Tscherkassky charges forward. (Alexander Horwarth)
