Sarphatistraat 470, Multiscreen video installation, 30 minutes,
Rijksakademie Open Studios, Amsterdam, NL, 2009
For this work I observed, for a year, situations and patterns of everybody who lived or worked on the Rijksakademie terrain.
At that time there were many chickens, rabbits and other animals at the Rijksakademie. I compared their behaviour and patterns to the people who worked at the institute, including my own.
The work is a fragmented poetic story in which all life is intertwined.
At the end of the year the chickens got a disease and they had to be eliminated. The video ends with Pieter the genator burying all the chickens.
This was the end of the vivid animal life on the terrain.MoreLess
