Alleen performance (Stationsweg, Den Haag)




Ik herhaal 5 minuten lang - met de mond vol deeg - met tussenpauze de zin: "Ich klebe an der Sprache".


16-mm Film, sch/w., Videoaufzeichnung, sch/w., 5 Minuten.

Ich wiederhole 5 Minuten lang - mit dem Mund voller Teig - in Abständen den Satz: "Ich klebe an der Sprache".


Klaus Boegel's face fills the screen. His mouth is filled with dough and he has trouble speaking. Every now and then, he swallows with great difficulty. Boegel keeps repeating the phrase 'Ich klebe an der Sprache' ('I stick to / hold on to language').

'Reminiszenz' is a short series of two works in which Boegel and Holtappels evoke the subject of memory and remembering through speech and vision, on the edge of what is considered psychologically sane or insane.
