Inge Reisberman presents video works in the Red Carpet Lounge
8 en 9 december 2018 Stand-alone videos, recent and older works, which are not part of a series. Red Carpet Lounge, Stationsweg 31-33, Leiden.
Dialogue#01 (2017) is a short film, made by Inge Reisberman and Michiel Keller. Two men get to know each other, carefully explore each other’s physical boundaries. The film has been shown before during Leiden International Short Film Experience and in the Voice4thought festival, also in Leiden.
In Hemerocallis (2018) a daytime lily was filmed from very close up, manipulating the process from flowering to decay.
In addition, various other video works will be shown.
The video installation Respice Finem is completed after one and a half years. The series consists of five works.
The theme of the video series Respice Finem (lat. Think about the end) finds its origin in the biblical story Sodom and Gomorrah, which deals with destruction as punishment for a wicked and godless way of life. Only the family of Lot is saved from above, provided one order is obeyed during the flight: you will not look back. However, Lot’s wife cannot control her curiosity and yet she looks back; she deforms into a pillar of salt.
Not being able to resist curiosity, this is a quality in human nature that can have disastrous consequences – as in the case of Lot’s wife – but can also produce “timeless” moments.
Respice Finem consists of the following video works:
Periculum Exitium Contemplatio Circulus Vitae Ars Moriendi
From mid-October 2017 my video Upstream will be on show again. Upstream is part of the video series Natures Mortes.
The collector behind the Wilploo Collection – Ingrid Blans – donated another series of artworks to Rijksmuseum Twenthe in 2015. Work by Renie Spoelstra, Bram Bogart, Inge Reisberman, Zoltin Peeter and Els Binnendijk is now part of the RMT collection.
