KOMFORT ÜBER ALLES!
‘Komfort Über Alles!’ is a video about Van Kerckhoven’s installation with the same title, a work that she displayed in the Warande in Turnhout in December 1980. The artist guides the viewer through the exhibition room. With numbers and arrows she shows the visitors which route they should follow. The objects refer to scientific subjects, like brain functions and complicated analysis, by which Van Kerckhoven is fascinated. Van Kerckhoven: "The installation ‘Komfort Über Alles!’ was about problems and their solution. It consisted of 5 core works, surrounded by smaller acolytes as support. Each larger work acted as a machine, as a step towards the solution of the problem. There was a clear pathway within the installation and one was helped by an additional, matching brochure. The works had titles like braintester, precision analyser, problem detector, structure apparatus and evolution monitor."
