KRATER (sculpture, 3D-sound, black water, bubbles, poetry, live music)
A silvery, eight feet wide sculpture resembling a volcano rises up in a landscape, as it did in the woods on the Vlieland island where the project premiered as part of the ‘Into The Great Wide Open’ festival in 2017. The crater is filled with an opaque inky liquid in which bubbles emerge. Every now and then auburn shapes surface, objects that are reminiscent of internal organs. A mysterious fog escapes from cavities in the object.
An unsettling rumble emanates from the depths of the crater, as if the volcano is about to erupt. Through wireless headphones the audience listen to an intense, spatial composition. Snatches from the poem ‘Nog één uur’ recited by the Flemish author Geert Cyriel Tavernier reflect the moods of a woman in the last hour of her life.
Synchronized holographic sound, imagery, lighting and movement constitute an integrated composition. Walking around Krater or quietly sitting next to it the audience become part of a surreal all-encompassing experience.
Krater can be installed in natural and architectural surroundings, both outside and inside.
