Secretaire Cabinet 2013

Video sculpture, 200 x 125 x 60 cm, seven video loops of 3-11 min, seven monitors, black wax, sound.

Behind the doors and draws of an old, black coated secretary cabinet family secrets are uncovered. Behind one door a woman is spitting out flies, behind another she is picking her nose. Behind a third the unwilling mother is depicted holding out babies in an arm’s length, together reflecting on the female body as a problematic home.
