2007 _ (re-) Creating History - The Moore Space, Miami, USA

(re-) Creating on Miami's Surfside Beach a set of images taken 11 years earlier in Mongolia at the border with Kazakhstan whilst researching notions of authenticity. Two slides of the artist and his then-girlfriend, scanned and enlarged re-creating the scenes from the Mongolian countryside, re-staging the sets in a live theater setting, revealing back- and front-side of the beach-stage; putting himself back into that situation transposed into a radically new environment.


Two-screen projection, front and back view of performance, both 24' 13''


Several multiplex boards with sticker C-prints, traditional Mongol attire, home-made yurt, wood supports, sandbags
