The video installations by Wim Catrysse appeal physically and directly to the spectator’s world of experience. Through simple technical means he realises highly suggestive images, which play with the existential context of the individual. His attention is principally aimed at corporeal expression, at the language of the body. The images have an alienating and grasping side to them, which is supported by the fragmentation of sound and image, the intensity and the ephemeral character. In ’Sudden Death’ a perspectivally-twisted stair is shown, an immobile figure standing at its end, looking like a dummy or puppet, and another figure walking up and down the stairs, from back to front within the image.
