The desire to produce a work at the KOLUMBA Museum existed for a long time.
As it happens our subject “shadow” matched perfectly with the exhibition concept at that time and so we were given the opportunity to develop our piece in the premises of the museum.
The echo of the past, the traces of history – the shadows – are still present and noticeable through the history of this place.
This in combination with the works of art was a huge source of inspiration for our performative and cinematic ideas.
We created a performative course the audience could follow through the different rooms of Kolumba.
