The color violet, which lies between blue and the invisible ultraviolet, is often ascribed a mystical quality. It is precisely this quality that Fehr addresses in the cross-media work cycle Violet.

An experimental short film made in collaboration with filmmaker Alex Brack features whimsical figures that seem to have fallen out of time. These figures, embodied by Fehr himself, move through spaces reminiscent of dream worlds. Following this logic, the film is interspersed with enigmatic fragments of music and text that create further levels of interpolation. Watch the full video here.

These fragments come from two music albums that pay homage to Eastern devotional music (Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Kishori Amonkar, Alice Coltrane's late work) and were released in 2020 on the Berlin label Martin Hossbach.

In various accompanying performances, Fehr uses deliberate scenographic interventions and audience interactions to create experiential spaces in which a multi-layered narrative web can unfold.
