Room with a view (Longing)

Rheinische Landklinik Kleef, 1993
In 1994 the 'Room' was set up in de Rheinische Landklinik in Kleef, Germany, a nineteenth century psychiatric institute in the woody surroundings of Bedburg-Hau. In the period August and September the 'Room' was installed in the former female dormitory of the closed department where female schizophrenics and psychotics had in the past been chained to their beds. The interior of the 'Room' was designed as a bedroom for one of them. The door did not close. Four female guests were invited to spend time there in turns and were asked to complete the walls with stories and their thoughts on fate, intimacy and the impossibility to escape your own mind.
