The exhibition features a two-channel video projection, “PARA – SCHIZO, ensnarled”, a group of hanging soft sculptures, “Büchse” (tin can), a metal sculpture reminiscent of a submarine, and a lecture-dance-performance on the opening night (March 1, 2010).

He also participated in the Biennale di Venezia, the Lyon Biennial, Documenta 11, and the Yokohama Triennale.
