Hearts of Glass

The project www.heartsofglass.net was created during the coronavirus era, when exchange and encounters were only possible virtually. Hearts made of steel and glass were sent to artists worldwide.

Colourless, transparent, empty. The participants could do whatever they wanted with it; the only condition was that all actions were documented and uploaded to the specially created website. The result is an exciting and diverse blog that includes everything from the documentation of performative and installative actions to video and sound art. From Hamlet to the search for a home, from burning hearts sunk in the sea and flying into the sky to buried, embroidered and bee-infested hearts, the stories told are as profound and often very personal as they are experimental, bizarre or politically committed.

Now the hearts, together with the objects created by the artists and the accompanying photos and video documentation, have been removed from the virtual world and shown in an exhibition.

heartsofglass.net was initiated and realised by Simone Fezer and Ele Runge. Although only planned for one year, the project is still running. Over 40 people worldwide are now involved.
