I keep trying to tell the Lion: “Don’t seek so far, the things you need the most are closer than you think”. And then he just shakes his head and points at his belly and his mouth so I tell him: “You don’t feed from bread alone”. Then he points at a picture of a steak and smiles.

The people have forgotten where they are going. They do remember that they were supposed to do something but what it is they cannot remember. Never the less they keep on moving and when they bump into each other they react by saying: “Nice to see you Mr. Thomas”, “Pardon” or “Oops…”.

Guggi | 2010

By admin, February 22, 2012

An in-situ installation with a single channel video projection and sound

onto the back wall of The Guggenheim Museum New York

Looped ca 35 min. 2010

Commissioned by Alan S. & Christina MacDonald

.

Guggi is a character living in a room inside the neighbor’s building. Guggi is our imagined personality. We watch him from our veranda. No one knows him but us. He is a fiction, but nevertheless real, since thoughts and words are as real as objects or beings aren’t they sometimes?

The builder inside the staircase

By admin, February 17, 2012

An in-situ piece at a private home as a part of “Coup de Ville” organised by Jan Hoet and Stef van Bellingen together with WARP in Sint Niklaas, Belgium 2010. The exhibition was a “Chambres des amis de 21. siecle” held in private and public locations in the city-centre of Sint-Niklaas. Key notions are integrity-led artistic engagement, dialogue, superseding cultures and generations. The title symbolically refers to an ‘occupied city’. This installation was done in a “found location” in the livingroom of a family that was moving into a new house. On the ground floor there was a staircase leading up to the next floor and on the side wall of the staircase was a small door. This sparked the idea of projecting something into that corner. We can say that the corner was brought to life with this video projection. It shows a ping pong ball rolling in and out of the door and occasionally a hand holding a hammer, a foot or a head sticks out of the door, indicating a builder that might be a some sort of a character of the small door or a “spirit” living in the house. The evoking and implantation of the character into the corner transforms it into a place where a possible story could occur.

A Night turns into a Day

By admin, February 9, 2012

An in-situ Video Installation at studio and home of Lisa de Kooning & Willem de Kooning, New York
.

Behind the studio is a bed of Large Bolders, some about 1.5 m high and 2 m wide. They are sitting there like an ensemble of giants having tea. I heard Lisa de Kooning always wanted to do something with these stones and it seemed as the perfect location for me. For some Days I’d sit with my video projector and computer behind the house in the company of what seemed to be legions of screaming insects. The dept of this choir is an astonishingly loaded sound carpet with a million details or surface that opens manifold if one listens to it with with the ears wide open. In the stark darkness the stones loom and the insects are turned on. The stones are being lit up with different shapes and colors, changing patterns as if different dimensions existed within them. The kingdom of stones will merge with the kingdom of insects, both deriving from the same place, the gray as Lao Tse describes it or from the dust in space that gathered into a gloving ball of magma later to become Earth as a Geologist would describe it. We who walk on the crust of that glowing ball bear eyewitness to the process of ascension from lifeless matter in the run of the last 5 billion years where a night turns into a day and vice versa
