‘Temporary Display’ is an account of the construction of a temporary platform at the bottom of Niagara Falls. Each year it is mounted in the same spot, only to be removed again because of wear and tear by the extreme circumstances. Because of the non-linear progress of the video it is impossible to distinguish whether the platform is mounted or rather pulled down. By juxtaposing two pieces of editing onscreen with shots from all sides of the activities Heiremans explores the architecture of the platform-to-be as well as the construction by the waterfalls themselves. ‘Temporary Display’ is originally a video-installation and meant to be projected.
