Suitcase Studies

2008 / suitcases, mdf, glass, backlit photos, lcd-screen etc. / dimensions variables

Every suitcase hosts a miniature art exhibition space in scale, complete with light, parquet and white walls. Among the miniature exhibitions is a series of architecture documentation, documenting airport chapels – the prayer or meditation rooms that are to be found in most international airports and an animation based video installation, where the video projection is simulated by the kind of LCD screens you can get to watch DVD in the rear seat of your car. The exhibitions in the suitcases reflect upon and relate to phenomena like origin, nostalgia, travelling and migration.
