BLUE SKIES FOREVER
In 2016 Beyoncé releases her video Hold Up, which seems to show many similarities to the video work Ever is Over All by Pipilotti Rist from 1997. Fascinated by the very different representation of 'the woman' in both video's, buren started working with two figures from Ever is Over All: Dorothy, based on Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and Officer, a female police officer.
In a dreamy, associative performance buren seeks how to imagine, portray, disembody and connect these figures. With a sense of abstraction and humor they jump into their clothes again and again.
