in the room 1

Das Arts, Amsterdam.

This was a in a black box, and was a private performance in front of invited friends. I used the audio track of the torture scene and the raid scene from Battle of Algiers (1966, G. Pontecorvo) in the video screening chapter of the performance. Thus violence was implicated, but the performance was mostly about the structure itself without having any reference point other than an idea of two people occupying one room. The performance was divided into several chapters, each of which was visually demarcated by the following successive images: brain, window, floor plan, and a diagram of an ancient city.
