Crucifixion #01//10 Stephansdom Action from norarufilm on Vimeo.

He is only wearing a loincloth and his crown is made from barbed wire. Left and right, he is flanked by two shrouds from his series “Anna.Ikona”, the original imprints of two corpses from the Anatomical Institute of the University of Vienna. It is a performance of deep symbolism, on Good Friday, the most important memorial day of the Catholic Church.virtual exhibition tour

The dignity of man is inviolable, it is a birthright. It is a challenge today to emerge from crisis, until the field of dignity and peace is reached, where development is possible. A life in dignity is lived beauty.

The entire 12 meter frieze is worked out on the original workshop sheets, using red chalk, graphite, oil chalk, gold- and silverleaf and linen oil.

Art Action #09//17 - Las Mercedes Reserva Natural de las Aguas


In the "Magdalena medio" region in Caldas / Central Colombia, not far from the largest river in the country, the Magdalena, nestled in Table Mountains, lies a still forgotten jungle landscape, full of bubbling springs, protected animals and rare plants. Las Mercedes, as this small region is called, forms one of the last intact green corridors from the, still completely untouched, Pacific coast into the Colombian central country, located between the three Andes-Cordillera.
But this gem could be destroyed...!
