"One of six flashlighted text animations I have created for my exhibit "Reverse and Cycle Stripes FREE ADMISSION" at Duve Gallery in Februar 2010.
Flashlighted and in quick succession, phrases, key words and text-teasers such as "Electra 8000", "Stiletto Strech Tight Up", "Woman Wonder Zip Zipper" bounce and blink over the displays. The textual fragments are exaggerated titles of articles found on sex shop websites or eBay exotic dancing shoe's adds.

By combining these texts with furniture fragments, packaging material and disposed objects, the artist brings the corporeal face-to-face with the social, making subtle yet astute commentaries on how easily desire can wear off without loosing its gaze. *Reverse and Cycle Stripes FREE ADMISSION* is based on a search that probes the canon of dance history along various lines of desire. The viewer experiences a multi-layered “tour de force” imposing a quasi-scientific investigation upon a real life experience."
