In the spring of 2016 Evelien Cammaert made a performance /installation called Tiny Things, Pretty Far Away The piece combines performance, with photography, sound –and set design. The result is a time-warping experience.
In this complex work the spectator is invited into a small space, built within a large industrial hall. Here he is presented with a video-projection consisting of photographs on the one side, a peephole with a monocular on the other. Through the hole we witness the performer as she constantly repeats the same actions and trajectory over and over again, until an image appears in the back of the hall after three hours… one that is repeated on the screen inside, as if the box were a camera obscura.
