Passage

2019, The Netherlands

Passage is a side specific video art work that is installed at station Sloterdijk, platform 5/6.

The video artwork based on a performance, in which the artist is mechanically dragged through the Dutch urban and industrial landscape. With a steady pace, his body is moving from left to right. Surrounded by machines and complex systems, the human body is exposed as rather defenceless and vulnerable, in a world that is both hectic and indifferent.
