“TRANSIT” is an installation constructed out of two elements.
A physical part; a loose standing construction of a corridor, entirely
build up out of gyproc and wood and only the interior is finished.
The interior has been finished similar to a newly build apartment.
The colour of the walls is a deep grey, taken out of the video part of this work. The video part shows us a picture of a single bedroom, seen from behind half open doors. The shade is grey and shows us a room in which the only movements come from the wind and the light. It seems to be a peaceful area but when confronted longer you notice that this room has an other undertone.
“Transit” begins just like a portrait.
This time a portrait of a state of mind, a mental state.
The lireral ‘portrait’ has been replaced by a space.
The physical element, occurring as a corridor that normally leads us from one place to another. In this installation brutally to a dead-end.
‘Transit’ has all the qualities of a corridor: long, narrow, etc.
This space only pretends to be a corridor, it doesn’t lead us to another physical space.
In this case it is the conductor to another unreachable place.
A bedroom. The bedroom, often seen as one of the most intimate spaces of someone’s house has been given a slightly odd nature. The room seems to have everything to be charming and peaceful, but after a while it develops an awkward after taste.
