Two casted objects, a video and a sound piece are productions in a row of several after a commission for a dead mask of the artists’ father before his actual end. Following this contradiction in the chronology of death and life the artist created wrappings playing with the depiction of portraits and further more of life and death using the idea of the transportation material to stage the interstice between one to the other.
Beside the two casted bronze wrappings, a post produced video brings the two wrappings in a display situation spinning on a turntable, questioning further the topics of movement and time. A sound composition of father and son recorded together in a shower booth takes over the idea of shared habits of both to sing under the shower, here creating a shared time offside a real space. The sound, in which two voices can be heard humming, murmuring and bubbling, might on the other hand be seen as speculative interpretation or mediation to the other productions of the installation.
