With special guests Joanne Oussoren & Frans Hakkemars. Oude binnenweg 45 Rotterdam
‘It’s always darkest before it turns black’
When entering the space the viewer sees a panoramic 6 meter long screen made of ricepaper. The screen is lid from the back and the viewer sees the projection of a parade of shadowpuppets, all going in one direction. Each of the eight puppets is holding an object in their hand or making a gesture (fork, pen, thermometer, paintbrush) The background is, not with the naked eye, changing slowly. When the viewer goes behind the screen, the back stage secret is revealed and the background becomes the foreground. The background are slowly melting lenses made of colorful ice.
on view as part of the exhibition curated by Edwin Carels for IFFR.
