This installation consists of two spaces. The antechamber shows a video sequence of classic paintings merging and unfolding a narrative. In the second chamber suspended hammocks await the visitor to lie down in them and listen to a story.

This work was nominated for the Sonae Media Art Prize in the National Museum for Contemporary Art (MNAC) in Lisbon.

Christoph De Boeck provided an audio solution for listening inside the hammock textile. He also processed the live recorded music of Stravinsky's Elegy for Solo Viola for the soundscape.

Violin by Elisabeth Druwé, recording by Nicolas Callot, processing by Christoph De Boeck.
