Marcel

The installation Marcel (realised in collaboration with Inez van Lamsweerde, Vinoodh Matadin. Marcel Musters and Jeroen Willems) is a combination of photography, film and soun – converging into one single image. The work raises questions regarding addiction and lethargy, authenticity and authorship, image and language.

The installation Marcel features a more than life-size black and white photograph depicting the face and shoulders of a naked, bearded man. Mouth open and eyes closed, his expression lies somewhere between pain and ecstasy. The photo serves as a screen for a coarse-grained home video that was covertly filmed from a kitchen window, showing the goings on of a group of junkies in a dark alley. On a separate sound tape mouth, a man’s voice murmurs fragmented thoughts in a state of half sleep.

Photography, film and sound – and yet the work forms a coherent whole. Like much of the work of Arnoud Holleman (Haarlem, 1964), Marcel offers an idiosyncratic portrait. The installation raises questions regarding addiction and lethargy, authenticity and authorship, image and language.

After having been shown in the US first, Marcel was presented in the Netherlands for the first time, during it’s exhibition at De Hallen Haarlem.
