For her solo exhibition фомушка at the Kunsthalle Fridericianum Micol AssaŽl worked with the Moscow University of Energetics, developing an expansive machine which will also produce an electrostatic charge. Positioned in the middle of the Kassel exhibition space, the machine brings together water and electricity to produce clouds of steam and lightning affecting the body, physical perception, and the senses. Like 'Chizhevsky Lessons' showed in Basel in 2007, the installation confronts visitors with the immateriality of electricity and its at once natural and mysterious power.

Fomuöka is realised in collaboration with Secession, Vienna and Museion, Bolzano.
