Hanging out, 2013
Iron frames, wooden benches.
Two channel video installation, HD video loop, sound, 3:50 min. Installation view and film stills.
For the film Hanging Out a situation was constructed where people are hanging out among sculptures while comfortably eating pizzas. While hearing people chitchat, the subtitles tell a different story. Referring to the situation, the subtitles give an insight into the sculptures’ point of view. The sculptures that are made for this occasion are given a language trough the subtitles in which they reflect upon their new status in the given situation.
The camera glances aside sculptures, people, and equipment, treating them all in an equal way. A surreal situation is shown in which the relationship between people, object, situation, sculpture and camera is put into question, and the supposed hierarchy between object, tool and human is undermined.
