CRAZY LITTLE THING CALLED LOVE
Performance 25 min.
with Lovorka Holjevac
2018 Twelve Twelve gallery, Den Haag
The performance is based on the book The Pioneer Days of Chicongo
by Alfons Vermeulen, published in the 1932; The performance is commissioned
by the Expatriate Archive Centre, Den Haag
The project has been made possible by support from Mondriaan Fonds
and Stroom Den Haag. A series of objects have been placed in front of
a man and a woman; these objects, placed one by one on a basement,
represent the only way of communication between the two; the play is
inspired by the real life of a Dutch trader and his concubine wife during
the Belgium occupation of Congo.
