Ruurlo, Bocurloscheweg, 1910

1997, single-channel video projection, black & white, silent, 10 min loop

This work shows the image of a postcard dating from the early 20th century. On a country road two men are standing near a gigantic tree. In the distance we can see a mill and the outline of a village. At first glance there is nothing that seems strange in this pastoral and picturesque tableau. But when you look closer you notice the leaves of the tree softly moving in the wind.
