Die Floete und das Bild - performance by flutist Roberto Fabbriciani, who plays the compositions of Luca Lombardi

time and person is an installation with two large-format video projections on suspended or fixed screens by Regina Huebner and the specifically combined music by composer Luca Lombardi, which will be performed live by flutist Roberto Fabbriciani.


In time and person we see on a large screen the video time: oversized drops of milk are continuously falling down on a red background forming a white lake of milk. At the certain extension of this lactic lake the direction will reverse and the drops will rise, representing the infinitely ongoing of time.


On a second, smaller screen in spatial relation to the first one, we see the the video person: the image of a moving and dancing figure in black and white. This 5 year old child has very long, never shortened hair. This little person reflects the sense of the desired freedom and symbolize human existence. The length of the hair is exactly her lifetime at that moment.


The flutist Roberto Fabbriciani plays music by composer Luca Lombardi in a special performance, related to the videoinstallation, moving in the space, introducing another phenomean of time: “the present”.

Video-clip of person: https://youtu.be/yhfIosakxPE Please note: the music is the original soundtrack on which the performer danced. Due to the video-edition, the music DOES NOT CORRESPOND on the real compositions by Luca Lombardi, but it is alterated!



The internationally recognized flutist Roberto Fabbriciani leads up the compositions by Luca Lombardi in a musical performance and stages his concert in the spatial installation time and person interacting with the images and the artistic concept. His live performance adds the “present” as a further element of time to Regina Hübner’s artwork, in which the two video projections are representing the personal time and the global flow of time, setting Luca Lombardi’s works in a spatial and temporal music experience.

Maestro Roberto Fabbriciani, one of the most important interpreters of contemporary music and soloist at the highest level, is a profound expert and interpreter of Lombardi’s music.   

Roberto Fabbriciani will play the compositions Schattenspiel (1984), Flatus (3 peaces) (1997/1999) and Nel vento, con Ariel (2004), all by Luca Lombardi.

Those pieces were combined under common regie in a special sequence with repeats and pauses for the whole zyklus (77') of the videoinstallation time and person. The compositions were compiled for time and person in a special combination with repeats and pauses by Lombardi himself. They are in a close connection with the visual form and the conceptual idea, but they retain their independence as musical compositions. They stand with the visual form and the conceptual artistic idea, but retain their independence as musical compositions. 


"… regina hübner‘s ironic impetus is based on the overt reference to the reversal of a process as represented in the chosen medium of video. the system of reference changes from the philosophy of time to the level of communication. the transformation of a process – in this case dripping- from a physical to an electronic medium breaks open the closed system which is one of the conditions of entropy…” Arnulf Rohsmann, art historian and scientific writer, in regina hübner / zeit (¹ 2005, Change + Partner 2001 – 2005, Rome, Italy and ² 2016, MMKK Museum Moderner Kunst Kärnten, Klagenfurt am Wörthersee, Austria).
