«Audience Exhibited»

The visitors of an exhibition were interviewed with a video camera and recorded. Simultaneously, these interviews run on TV sets in the rooms of a gallery such that the visitors become part of the exhibition, become exhibited objects. On another TV set a tape just made runs or some tapes are repeated by request so that the visitor can review himself. The public of an exhibition becomes self exhibited, the viewers are viewed; a dematerialization of the art object and a transformation of the art concept; time experiences, psychological confrontations with his own image in a public space, time delays.
