3-channel video installation, 7 digitized 16mm b/w films in loop (9:36”) 969cm x 220cm
In the video choreography Fuga, seven people look straight at the viewer; four women, three men, of different ages. Alternately, in surrender, they fall straight ahead and rise again. Sometimes synchronously, sometimes alone.
Shown at the exhibition Surrender in Museum Tot Zover in Amsterdam until August 22nd 2021
review Parool: (…) Breathtaking. And an almost hallucinatory experience that also brings a lot of peace. (…) But even without the thought of the life cycle it is a beautiful work of art. Which you can also just look at and just let your own thoughts loose.
