Hotel Maria Kapel, Hoorn at SUPERMARKET art fair,
Kulturhuset in Stockholm,
Format installation 5 x 3m
The installation Love Disaster, created by Mariëlle Videler for the art fair in Stockholm, is inspired by two opposite desires: ectasy and control. When a party degenerates into a disaster, like what happend in 2010 on the Love Parade in Germany, the two desires clash in a very confronting way. Elements like images from defeated party people and ground plans of disco’s where mixed with prevention regulations, symbols and codes. The preformer, Mariëlle Videler who is the daughter of a fireman, was liging under in the stage, not visible but audible through a grate and reading out loud a long list of fire regulations published in the Staats blad van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden.
