The installation Love Disaster, created by Mariëlle Videler for the art fair in Stockholm, is inspired by two opposite desires: ecstasy and control. When a party degenerates into a disaster, like what happenend in 2010 on the Love Parade in Germany, the two desires clash in a very confronting way. The two opposite elmenets, images from defeated party people, ground plans of disco’s, prevention regulations, symbols and codes, where mixed. The performer, Mariëlle Videler, who is the daughter of a fireman, lay flat on the ground locked in the sculpture. There she read out loud a long list of fire regulations published in the Staatsblad van het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden. The public that walked around or on the sculpture could hear here voice through a grate.
