Dance or: disco ball (2018)

 

Video: 3.30minutes

 

This year pop temple Paradiso celebrated their 50th anniversary, the perfect occasion for a multidisciplinary exposition, talks and a party organized by MOAM Amsterdam. 25 Artists and 25 performers where inspired by sex, drugs and rock&roll in the year 2018.

 

Being the very centre of every party while staying invisible at the same time, the disco ball was the inspiration for this video. Plastic and rickety he keeps turning and turning. At the end of the night, when even the last person is in bed waiting for the next morning´s hangover, the disco ball is still tireless. The video pays tribute to the object´s endless efforts of being the lucid center by giving it the attention and affection it deserves.
