No video available


The two video sequences in the video ‘Doors’ is related to Nan Hoover’s move from New York to Berlin to begin to work under a one-year residency grant from the Deustcsher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD). The video shows two figures moving towards a door, both seem to be of the same person. The movement is suggested by the position of the arms. Doors are closed continuously. Or are they opened? By projecting the two imagesnext to each other, a subtle rhythm is created between the two movements of this mysterious figure. It is also an enigmatic image, metaphorically speaking, doors are an entrance to somewhere else - to a different place, and could also be related with a newbeginning and with the unknown.
