Commentary
Artists

In a performance in Warsaw and Antwerp Marcel Odenbach’s subject was the dire situation a viewer can find himself in in a TV room. He sits in a darkened room squeezed in between two screens, one showing the news and the other a light program, a fashion show with pop music in the background. Odenbach gradually pushes the screens further and further away from himself.
