“Deep In – Pain” (00:05:00) by Anna Löffelhardt, Negar Malayeri, Italy, 2022

For this piece, we confronted a small group of people with a basic but yet rich emotion, PAIN. People with different backgrounds, genders and interpretations of the concept were asked to react to the sentences and questions, without previous knowledge of the topic. Everyone was free to express themselves the way they wanted to. These participants and their train of thought became a performance, evoking emotions in the people who watch the video and maybe react to this topic themselves, becoming part of the performance in their own space. Our goal was to investigate a basic human emotion and the reactions towards it.


Anna Löffelhardt and Negar Malayeri met during their university studies in Italy. Anna is from Germany and Negar is from Iran. Even with international differences they found mutual interests in conceptual Art. They have worked together on multiple interdisciplinary projects between Fashion, Video and art.

Pebbles Underground is focused on showcasing and promoting experimental, avant-garde, underground, and no-to-low budget projects by artist-humans from all over the world. Absurd, uncanny, witty, humorous, slow-video – all are welcomed, and loved. Pebbles Underground is an independent project not funded by any government or corporation, and we intend to keep it that way. Main source of funding is personal donations from humans organizing the project, who are artists themselves, and the main drive of the project is formed by the energy and involvement of the organizers, and the public.
