Sarah Vanhee has collected a year’s worth of real and virtual trash and brings it together in a performance.
Imagine this place where you find yourself reconnected to everything you have discarded, deleted or thrown away. Objects, thoughts, relations you had already cut yourself loose from and forgotten about, now they are all there again. They are yours, you care about them. You reverse, re-value, re-invest. Every thing is worth something. When does your trash stop being your trash? Think an inverse world, for instance that scene in Buñuel’s The Phantom Of Liberty where hosts and guests shit together around the dinner table and eat alone in the toilet.
Oblivion is a performance with everything Sarah Vanhee would have thrown away during one year working and living. It is a slow celebration of things unhidden.
