BUILDING

by Anton AEKI & Anouk DE CLERCQ
2003 / Video / b&w / sound / 1S / 12' 00

Shafts of light and the camera are moving through the dark as in a glissando. Flat, sharply cut forms appear in black-and-white and high definition. They feel their way along expanses of wall, opening up storeys, windows and doors, and break down on floors, stairs and columns. In this way, according to a controlled choreography upheld by the music of Anton Aeki, a truly architectural experience is created on the screen. Like a constructivist audiovisual mobile, the building reveals itself and is being documented as in an architect’s dream. in other words: as a spatial and atmospheric starting point for users to start leaving their marks on it.
Building is inspired by the new concerthall in Bruges and thereby also pays homage to the work of Robbrecht & Daem, the Belgian architect’s collective which is well known for such exploits as the new Boijmans van Beuningen museum in Rotterdam and the Aue-pavilions for Documenta IX in Kassel.
