(Don’t) Mind the Body at Oever

october 2010

Location: Oever 21, 2000 Antwerp (BE)

The video installation Hands plays with time and space and the tension between image and language. Bie Michels intervenes in everyday space, creating a different way of looking. When she saw in a restaurant in Mechelen how the shadow of the hands of people at one particular table was projected on a white column by the incident light, she promptly reserved a tête à tête at that table and staged her own shadow play.
