Video installation with Curtain (700x220cm), 2016
In Remembrance of Williwaw is an installation that links together the personal and the public. The starting point of the project is the wind, that it connects us all both physically and metaphorically. The work speaks of how the larger problems and power structures going on outside can be observed from the private space; home as a place of safety zone behind the curtain. In the installation I shift the role of the materials in between curtain and flag questioning symbolic representations. During the installation the curtain billows in constant movement as in a theater set with a fictional daylight at the end of the space.
