Young Girl at an Open Window
Video still
Start video
2004 [colour, silent, 6 min. 22 sec. / excerpt: 55 sec.]

Like Vermeer's paintings, a young girl's dollhouse displays a serene domestic existence within a stage-like setting. Shifts in focus and disjunctions of place and time seep in and question this clamly ordered home in a video and series of still images.
