The video work titled "Abiding (Proba Wody)" - (Trial by Water) is by Monika Weiss. Aneta Szylak writes, "Monika Weiss combines traditional techniques such as drawing with performance, video and sound installations. The perpetual aspect of her performances, their slowness, repetitiveness are very much experience oriented. Abiding (Proba Wody), (1999-2000) deals with ritual immersion and separates the performing subject from her usual surroundings. Many of her often-risky performances with immersions in different liquids provide sensory deprivation and have almost meditative aspects. [Aneta Szylak in "You Won't Feel A Thing: On Panic, Obsession, Rituality and Anesthesia", Kunsthaus Dresden, Germany, 2007].
