The enchanted room
The enchanted room is an installation about the all connecting water and the smell of water and earth. The paper objects of the installation hide the sound of the riverdelta.
The distance between the objects invites the viewer to walk between them and thus to take a role in the work as an observer, to read the text fragments on the plates and spoons; eating stories, the table is set.
A stimulating journey through construction and decline.
The text fragments on the plates, spoons and other parts can be personal dreams and memories, the names of the flooded villages of the Dollard, local sagas; for example of the passage of souls to Engelland.
Layer upon layer; the work is built up with Ems sludge and soil.
