Mutter II (2016) Kunstpodium T, Tilburg (NL) Mixed media installation. (Display monitor, limestone, projector)
Mutter II is a multimedia installation saturated in green light: a true tale of deceit set up in a space of fiction. It houses a video about an unexpected telephone conversation (in German) between a man and his mother, describing the events that led to his demise. We are taken through his discovery about a particular set of fossils, constructed as an elaborate hoax by fellow colleagues. Alongside the video, large green subtitles are projected on the adjacent wall and pieces of limestone attached to the equipment, attempt to blend themselves into their environment. This installation is an extension of the live performance intervention that took place at the Teylers Museum in Haarlem (Mutter I).
