Installation view, 'Audit', auditorium of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague
/ is a single-channel video work which captures two people engaged in an interaction which takes place neither within language, nor completely outside it. Their interaction, which is based on Christian prayer practices, is simultaneously ritualistic and physical. Communications take place between their bodies, the precise content of which is never brought into the sphere of linguistic understanding.
/ has been showed for the first time in 'Audit', the grad show of the Master Artistic Research in The Hague. A preview of the work is available by request via e-mail.
