Times 2

Herman Asselberghs

video, color, silent, installation, BE, 2024, 68’

From 2022 to 2024 Herman Asselberghs made 20 silent student portraits, Times 2, which are simultaneously projected on two screens. Without a beginning or an ending, the visitor can jump in at any point in the sequence. We do not know what goes on in the minds, the hearts, and the lives of these young people. An attentive person is completely within herself or entirely with herself, and at the same time out or outside of herself. Like attentive viewers, the students are simultaneously here and now and elsewhere. They are images of pure attention, or pure images of attention.
