Omschrijving werk

I (Anna de Vries, Den Haag, 1991) am a futurist. In earlier times humans were attached to each other. People had two heads, four arms and four legs. Also other situations were like couples. I saw Botticelli's Venus standing on a satalite dish, they were one and felt perfectly at home. But on a funny day God was bored and decided to split the things up. Ever since, the things are looking for their perfect better half. In my collages I organize reunions for them. Their meetings will take place in the nearby future. The nearby future is also portrayed in the films I make. In my films I chase my own better halfs and the better halfs of others. The better halfs pop up in the theatrical world around me. I see similarities between birds and airplanes. In Tokyo I spotted virtual animals and neo humans. During carnival in Belgium alien-like creatures returned to earth. I make art to avoid the boredom of being seperated, and to celebrate the feeling of having two heads again.
