Sarphatistraat 470, Multiscreen video installation, 30 minutes,

Rijksakademie Open Studios, Amsterdam, NL, 2009
 

For this work I observed, for a year,  situations and patterns of everybody who lived or worked on the Rijksakademie terrain.

At that time there were many chickens, rabbits and other animals at the Rijksakademie. I compared their behaviour and patterns to the people who worked at the institute, including my own.

The work is a fragmented poetic story in which all life is intertwined.

At the end of the year the chickens got a disease and they had to be eliminated. The video ends with Pieter the genator burying all the chickens.

This was the end of the vivid animal life on the terrain.
