A distorted reality is now a
necessity to be free
The promise of promise
the less we seem to notice
Here there is no room for thought
Catch my drift
State of delusion
Suspension of disbelief
Divine methods / Hidden motives
Pick / Place
The most common way
2003 - Installation: sculpture, video on screen and on monitor, sound.
Installation view - Prix de Rome 2003,
GEM Museum voor Actuele Kunst, Den Haag
Two empty rooms have been placed in the corners of the space at different heights. Underneath, lays a city or something that reminds of one. In the background loud explosions are heard. They are coming from two screens showing empty rooms, similar to (or the same as) those on view, being affected by something we can’t see and can’t control. Elsewhere in the space, a monitor is playing a video, which resembles architectural planning, showing a city from a bird’s perspective. Some parts of the city are transparent, as if they are yet to be built (link to the video).
‘This City, (I thought), is so horrible that its mere existence and perdurance, though in the midst of a secret desert, contaminates the past and the future and in someway even jeopardizes the stars.’ (From ‘The City of the Immortals’ by Jorge Luis Borges)
