Collecting Life: starting from the passion of collecting as such and the overlapping of artists and hoarders and their fascination for collections that are also representative of a way of li!fe, Rukschcio made a movie in 2012 about a philosopher (“Collecting Life: the cascades of Dr. P.” A 2012, 28 min.) The protagonist collects newspapers and books and considers his apartment as the “spatial concept of his brain”.
In addition to this film Fiona Rukschcio also produced collages and objects that function as instructions for the camera: the camera should move among the piles of paper like the airplane is flying between mountains in her collages.(Installation: „The cascades of Dr. P“ A 2013, 24:30 min)
In order to view the theme from different angles and make it more accessible to the public, she put together an extensive related programme.
