Dirk Jan Jager NL and JiHyun Youn KR - Possession

Possession presents the body as an object in a situation inspired by Japanese funeral ritual, especially the preparation of the body for burial, the washing and shrouding of a dead body. Through the power of the imagination the body's most corpse-like, passive posture will appear as intense action. The accompanying objects reanimate the story. The ‘Things’ become ‘Actions’, the ‘Being’ becomes a ‘Story'. What will make this flip from passive to active in your perception?
