Doubletake / Jules Ferry statue / 2016

series of unfinished videos and drawings

 

Double Take is the moment when an unexpected spectacle steps out from the stream of perception and - though we already went passed it - we turn back to take a look again. My aim is to dig out conventions in everyday life that we are so used to that they become invisible. As examples of these conventions I chose some public statues that are being part of the everyday idyllic urban landscape and I virtually modify them in a subversive way.
