  SWEEP - Letters to Hannah Arendt and Trista. Dear Hannah ... In a 60 minutes performance, three performers respond to silences, whispers, accords, discords and two fictive letters. Their movements are not extensively rehearsed, but reveal themselves for the most part spontaneously. To what extent is this a creative process, constructions of (cultural) conditioning or expressions of failure? Performance, Castrum peregini, Herengracht 401, Amsterdam.

  Installation Lebensraum, Kunstfort near Vijfhuizen. Physically and visually the place is cut of by six tie rods. Using the rhythm of the rods as a visual tool by attaching red bands of fabric with folded newspapers, the space was transformed by means of Luscher's colour diagnostics into a 'shame space', playing with the ambiguities of text and colour language. Hanging from the rods in tie-knots, the red ribbons suggest the man in the street; the man with his newspaper, i.e., his everyday knowledge.
