Broom Groom / Sweeping Solo




Two almost look-alike woman of different age, are relating to a guy in an orange jumpsuit. They communicate in a dark hallucinatory parallel universe. Story lines suggested through fragments of text and short dialogues, are flowing onward only to be interrupted by unexpected actions. Modernism and progress are set against human connectivity and yearning. Object, figure and sound seem tangible but disappear again, reappearing in a next loop, while offering another interpretation.

Broom Groom / Sweeping Solo is a digital/cinematographic installation about empathy, connectivity and relationship in this era of rapid (digital) communication. ‘The Black Square’ by Malevich and the ballade ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ by Goethe mark the artistic points of departure for this work.

The installation consists of a three channels projection upon three transparent screens of gauze fabric. The projection falls on- and connects with- the architecture of the exhibition space. The visuals contain film, computer generated images and animations. The installation was lately presented as a try-out in the UBIK space of WORM 12-15 April 2018.
Made possible with the kind support of Creative Industries Fund NL.
