The Nursery – 2008.
An installation for the performance ‘Terra Extremitas’ by the company Foolish People.
At the invitation of the English company Foolish People I made a nursery in a closed off room. I used black duck tape to draw on the walls and floor with. There were beds lined out of the children that used to be there. At the heads of their bed spaces were their names and a drawing of a worn-out thrown away doll. On top of their bed spaces sat their abandoned teddy bear who was now alive (as was fitting in the story of the performance) and had taken over the most prominent characteristics of the child who disappeared.
The impression was made by Petra van der Meijden.
