‘Shooting at beautiful symbols
We listen and we hear of
Quite like this one here close to us
But not the quite same’
Monday, 29th of June 1702
I wake up to the heavy bells from the church. Feeling drowsy I try to recall how I ended up in this bed with rosy satin cushions. Ja, genau. A smile stretches across my face when thinking of how we at first hid underneath the tree when the rain caught us but then just decided to get wet and walk to your parental residence. “I mean it’s June”. They call me down and I hurry up. “Good morning, how..”. I get stuck as my glance stops at the massive silver chandelier with as many diamonds as fish scales. They look puzzled and repeat “Lovely morning. Breakfast will be ready in half an hour” and leave with raised eyebrows as their advice is required in the kitchen. For another minute, I look at this object that in the moment seems to hold the palace together. Then quickly, I tiptoe my way out and walk up the little alley. Out of sight I start to run. “the future is so into you, the future is so into you” I keep repeating to myself.
The work displayed in the exhibition Souffleuse Broke Free revolves around the idea of reversing the private through the narrative of a home. Home understood as a place to which many memories are linked, home understood as a state of mind.
The narrative examines the space between private and public within the sphere of homes, and the borders of such. It remain being a zone for projection like viewers in the theatre do with scenery
