'They are like so many cages, so many small theatres, in which each actor is alone, perfectly individualized and constantly visible.’ (Michel Foucault, Discipline & Punish: The Birth of the Prison)
A panoptical installation in a landscape reveals what the naked eye can barely perceive. Six points of observation guide the spectator’s glance from the stately surroundings into the intimacy of isolated figures in the distance. In an atmosphere of melancholy and vague menace they attempt to inscribe themselves in world and time. Bank, lowland and horizon create distances or try to bridge them. The landscape becomes a mediator between human-size actions and cosmic dimensions. Visitors determine their own time; the performers keep on playing without interruption.
