For the exhibition ‘Peeping’, the final show from the Post St Joost students in Dordrecht I made several installations related to each other and interacting with the building. In one room I hung an embroided text someone wrote to me. Simple words that mean a lot to me, it raises the expectation to see each other again. In the opposite corner was a fireplace and I laid a doll that looks like me with the head hiding in the corner. Afraid to look what will happen.
In the hallway I placed a small table with two holes in the tabletop. The holes are pressed in the surface with elbows.
In a space in the corridor I placed an empty counter. A sign above the counter does not clarify a thing.
In the last room I blocked the entrance and showed a slide projection in the doorway of the same doll but in another place.
