Abstract (in English)

This contribution presents a scenographic installation symbolising a unique encounter. The door to the rediscovered space is grown together since a long time with environment. So we have the door, which is old, which belongs to the past, to the time when that space was still known, and we have the lighting, the light of today which tries to rediscover, which tries to show us a way, or to show us even what’s behind the door but we don’t see this. When archeologists try to find some signs of a culture which doesn’t exist anymore, or at least in the form it was, collect some objects, and put the objects in the museum and then say: ‘there you can get the feeling of the culture’. If I think of it, it is very seldom if a museum of objects of a culture really reveals a culture. On this idea I built my memories. Boxes in the sand, like the door I’ve build before. Just boxes in the sand. Needing to be diggen out.
