A hole to be filled

A hole to be filled is a film essay revolving around my stay in the green house at the Verbeke foundation, 2019. Local history, material findings, flora, fauna, earlier residents, their unfinished works and conflicts all play part in this Shakespearean vlog with a dissimulated yet dramatic narrative. The viewer follows me as an eccentric individual that has reunited with his dearest habitat but he is soon to find that he shares it with someone else. Camouflage and its countermeasure: seeing, become the tools from which the narrative unfolds. It is through my guiding voice and the vertical formated video that the audience feel as if they are the ones that uncover the secrets of the space.

The work was first seen as a fragmented collection of videos on handheld devices through the app Instagram.

A new edit was finalised in 2022 thanks to the generous support of the Mondriaan Fonds. The video work can be seen on my website, in the green house of the Verbeke foundation and occasionally as a screening in its original format screened on Instagram.
