DEPRESSION MARQUIS (2009, 2:23): The glass elevator at the luxurious hotel Marriott Marquis in New York rides down – the long ride ends in glacier ice. A metaphor for depressions which can affect people living in abundance.
ASCENSION (2004, 1:11): The glass elevator at the luxurious hotel Marriott Marquis in New York brings you to “heaven” … We are brought up and tought to strive for higher things – success, wealth, honour, and/or spiritual enlightenment. ASCENSION shows – in a brief and ironic way – this aspiration and its compensation.
In the video diptych or 2 channel installation, the elevator rides in opposite directions. Ascension is running twice during one presentation of Depression Marquis.
