Silent rooms (1981)

Installation, Amsterdam, Gallery À (NL)

In the first space you see black painted silk screens, a white painted window, 2 audio cassette machines playing erased loop tapes and a video monitor, which displays the signal from an erased video tape. In the second room you find one blanket on which lies a set of headphones, and another blanket which covers a life-size doll.
Entering the room you hear the sound of a beating heart, and if you lie down you can hear the sound recorded in a 'mothers womb' via the headphones. The dark space is illuminated by a fluorescent rod.
