of a lifetime


A video is projected on a white wall. In the centre of the wall is a small peephole, showing the second video.

The work "Performance of a Lifetime" presents two perspectives, that of the performer and that of the spectator. The experience of the performer is vast, blurry, and intense, reflecting his inner world. In contrast, the perspective of the spectator is small and hard to discern. The work illustrates how the same interaction can be experienced in completely different ways. It explores how, in certain encounters, we may adopt a 'performative' role to make the right impression or meet certain expectations. Often, this is unnecessary and goes unnoticed by the other person, who observes through a small peephole with one eye closed. This mode of interaction creates isolation, depicted in the actions portrayed by the performer.
