installatie

Awaiting is an interactive installation that Martin Riebeek designed especially for the CBK in Utrecht. In Martin Riebeek’s work the factors of ‘surprise’, ‘the unexpected encounter’ and ‘the viewer who becomes part of the piece’ play an important role. The visitor’s attention is at first excited by images of children playing on the Our Lady in Heaven cemetery, which is the square at which the exposition hall of the CBK is situated. When the visitor comes closer to the image, the screen which shows the film becomes transparent and a three-dimensional ‘still life’ with light and sound appears. Then the visitor is confronted by a slowmotion film of his own image. The viewer gets involved in something he thought he was outside of. From an outsider he becomes an accomplice.
