Video installation: "Refuge" at NL=US Art. Exhibition: "Longing for paradise"

In the work “Refuge” an adult Egyptian goose can be seen with a group of young chicks who together seek safety and warmth near the adult bird. Close to the goose they seek shelter from the outside world.This vigilant bird keeps a close eye on the environment and looks intensely at the viewer. The Egyptian goose did not originally occur in Europe but was introduced in the 18th century as an ornamental bird, after which escaped birds soon started breeding in the wild. In the video, not only goose chicks seek shelter at the bird, a one-day old chick has also found refuge at her side.
