THE ROAD BACK - INSTALLATION

Summary
This audiovisual memory labyrinth assumes the physical form of a maze in which images are on semi-transparent cloth drapes. While we search our way to the centre, we are submerged into a time in which present and past meet, blend into a new form and vanish again. This installation by Maurits Wouters visualizes in a poetical manner the seductive yet –at the same time - unreliable nature of the past. As if it were an eternal moment in which one wants to get lost. The installation, based on the short film The Road Back that Maurits directed, was realized in collaboration with the department ‘Podiumtechnieken & Montage’ (Stage techniques & Editing) of the School of Arts - RITCS in Brussels.
