Title: The Apartment
Materials used: Wood, paint
Description: The Apartment is a reconstruction of the most important location in Repulsion, film by Roman Polanski (1965). I reconstructed the apartment as a film set in which one could make a remake of the film but in a way that it could be done in one shot. For each shot I made a new version of the space, exactly the way the camera showed it in the film. The audience ‘performs the camera’, takes the position of the camera traversing space and ‘cutting’ from one space to the next. Instead of of using projection or moving image, the spectator is asked to perform the role of the camera. And make the sequence by walking through the installation. The Apartment is a crossover between a Merzbau dolls house and a walktrough haunted house in the style of Robert Wiene’s Das Kabinett des Doktor Caligari.
