Doors of Perception 1-2 2009

Video sculpture, 210 cm x 90 cm x 15 cm, 10 min, with sound, wooden doors with door surrounds, 7” monitor, computer, loudspeaker.

Spectators are urged to bend down and lurk 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.
