The photo ‘Hairy Waterfall’ depicts a person with long wavy hair that emanates a shower of flowing water. This shower can be worn as if a piece of clothing and showcases an alternative way of cleaning.

PRESENTED BY ART SPACE SECONDROOM:
Since 2006, SECONDroom has been organising single-day exhibitions as an independent platform. The initiative of Christophe Floré started in his private house in Brussels. A room on the first floor was transformed into an exhibition space where a different artist was given carte blanche to show work during a public exhibition every Saturday between 18h and 21h. This constant renewal of exhibitions gave SECONDroom an intimate character. Because the duration of the exhibition is limited to a short-lived vernissage, it has the character of an event. Since its coming into existence, SECONDroom has organised more than 300 exhibitions using this weekly formula. SECONDroom is currently located in Antwerp (Berchem).
[ENG] Trees Heil (1993, The Netherlands) makes photos, short videos and performances. The works show temporarily constructed situations in which spaces, people and their behaviors are given a new poetic context. By using materials such as plaster, jute, hair and paint, the people who are photographed are transformed into different shapes. Heil examines the fluidity of man and themes such as identity and intimacy are explored.

De werken tonen tijdelijk geconstrueerde situaties waarin ruimtes, mensen en hun gedragingen een nieuwe poëtische context krijgen. Door het gebruik van materialen als gips, jute, haar en verf worden de gefotografeerde mensen getransformeerd naar verschillende gedaantes. Heil onderzoekt de vloeibaarheid van de mens en thema’s als identiteit en intimiteit worden onderzocht.
