OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

During the exhibition off senses / future senses at Gemak (which

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

i visited some time ago) Petra van der Schoot has

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

been working on her installation Gevallen kamers (Fallen Rooms). She made

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

a kind of diary on the wall. The project isn’t

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

finished yet, but in fact it can’t be finished as that

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

would obscure the process which is part of the installation.

So she stopped working on it. It has become a work

which produces different meanings, covering objects which still can be

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

recognised but have lost their functions, bound together in a kind

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

of web which makes them dependant on each other. As

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

such the web creates a new environment where some of

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

the objects don’t just have lost their function but also

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

their weight. The late summer sun, or early autumnal sun

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

if you wish, provides the whole with some extra dimension.

In the process she also wrapped up a man which

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

completes the idea of a spider’s web. But i’m happy

??????????????????????

to report to you that the man is free again.
