Roßkur
video loop with sound - 2011

The German expression
Roßkur (Horse treatment) is understood as a medical treatment with the help of drastic and controversial methods. In her video, Martin is wearing a latex costume, wooden shoes, and attached to her head, she has a horse tail, which partially covers her face. She shakes her head and brings the horse tail to swing. Her repeated steps make a loud sound which resembles hooves. By repeating her act, Martin integrates her performed image into a symbolic order.
