The exhibition entitled ‘Walking on the water according to Dr. Kneipp‘ was exhibited at the Center for Physical Rehabilitation in Skopje, Macedonia. The installation occupied the unusual and somber space of a local hospital for rehabilitation – which, as an artist’s strategy, suggested the possibility of using non-gallery environments for exhibitions. Prior to this, in Macedonia, unusual spaces had rarely been used as alternative venues for exhibitions.

The third and final room (of the sequence of rooms used for the installation) was completely darkened. On top of the single large water filled basin, a single night-gown appeared to be floating,with the projection of an animation.

The animation consisted of edited photographs of the actual space – the Center for Physical Reha- bilitation. These result in a dark and sombre video, accompanied by the sound of an equally ambient sound piece, specially composed for the project by Kokan Dimusevski.
