Doors of Perception 1-2 2009

Video sculpture, black painted and framed wooden door, 7" monitor (x2), 10:00 min, with sound

To see what is happening, viewers must bend down and peep through keyholes in two black doors. Behind one door, a woman is taking a shower with her dog, accompanied by the sound of running water and her voice speaking softly to the dog. Behind the second door, the same woman is sitting on a bed, removing hairs from her nipples. One can hear her humming and pottering about. She thinks she is alone and unseen.
