Puck Verkade (NL 1987)

Plague (2019). A fly fantasizes about the extinction of humanity, a surreal analogy is drawn between the tormented psyche and the exhaustion of the earth.  All this culminates in a Kafkaesque metamorphosis of the housewife into a fly. Puck Verkade realized this video installation with a mix of self-made puppets, camera work in which she plays a role, and stop motion animation techniques.

Erik van Lieshout (NL 1968)

G.O.A.T. (2017). Erik van Lieshout was invited to participate in the Kochi Muziri Biennale in India. His intention was to make a film of the public, but when he arrived the goats were still around. He set up an exhibition space as a goat stable for which he rented two goats as an alienating element to make contact. In his own chaotic way, he filmed the space, the visitors, the goats and himself to eventually produce a humorous 61-minute film that does have a head and tail, to stay in goat terms.
