Demon On/Off

Demon On/off is a temporary installation in public space that was installed on the Sainctelette bridge, between Brussels center and Molenbeek. It re-appropriates a technical glitch in the lighting of the sculptural features of the bridge and was visible every night between july 2014 and november 2015. Since then, timing has become irregular. You might see it, you might not, don’t count on it.

May Way

mayway

DV/ 16 minutes / 2001 / stereo / Dutch spoken

A road movie full of nostalgia and desire. The voice over reads excerpts from travel reports that my grandfather wrote in the seventies. The photo’s in the film were taken by my father between 1963 and 1997. He used to show them to the family as slideshows, a performative memory game of sequence recognition and retelling the story of the places and circumstances that the images depict. This selection was digitised by filming a projection: they are not stills, but moving images; aged and rimpled, scratched, and degraded by being used over a long period of time.

Bij ons in de Familie / Family affairs

bijons

DV / 35 minutes / 2002 / stereo / dutch spoken, in collaboration with Kirsten Leenaars

In this documentary neighbours living in the same flat building in the city of Vlaardingen, Holland, show their photo albums, talk about pictures of their family members, and how they ended up living in Vlaardingen. For some of them this has been a deliberate choice, especially after the second world war there were jobs and opportunities here. In more recent years the city places refugees, students and people with low incomes in this block, which sometimes lead to uncomfortable situations between people living next door from each other. But whether they are revolutionary Syrian Kurd, retired Rotterdam shoe dealer or feminist ex hippy, all of them have images of friends family and loved ones that they warm heartedly discuss.

This collaborative video was shot during the project Uit+Thuis Video magazijn (Home+Away video stock), a public video workplace that I ran between 2001 and 2004.
