See that my grave
is kept clean

Adaline Anobile (CH,BE)

Extra Time — creation

as part of the program Extra Time

A print by Albrecht Dürer dating back to the Renaissance depicts a strange scene: a naked woman is lying on a table behind a grid ; facing her on the other side, a man tries to reproduce what he sees, using the grid as a reference system to measure, to pinpoint, to see. Even if the figure of the woman is captured by this device, called a perspective machine, it will never be entirely contained. The grid  cannot capture her depth or thoughts. In See that my grave is kept clean, the three figures in the print – the naked woman, the observer and the grid – are transposed to the stage.
