EN MASSE

NL – EN MASSE is na A LA LIMITE & INSIDE het derde luik van de intieme verbeeldingstrilogie. De groepsdynamica, al door menig kunstenaars tot denkvoer vermalen, wordt in EN MASSE tot haar basis herleid.

Drie mensen. Een groep, of gewoon drie mensen. Nu eens samen, dan weer afwijkend. De groep verschijnt, en verbrokkelt. Het individu wint, of verliest.
“We zijn nog nooit zo goed samen geweest.”

EN – EN MASSE is the third part in the trilogy after A LA LIMITE & INSIDE. It portraits the dynamics within a group in a physical way. Three individuals form the basis of a group. A group, or just three individuals. Sometimes together, sometimes apart. The group appears, and crumbles. The individual wins, or looses.

How do people become a group? Where does it come from, this feeling of belonging to a group? How vulnerable is it? Is it an illusion? Do be people want to be ‘normal’? And what does it mean, being ‘normal’?

EN MASSE is inspired by Philip balls ‘Critical Mass, how one thing leads to another’, scientific work from Tuckman, Kurt Lewin and Kelman and current social trends (e.g. flash mobs).

“We’ve never been this good together”
