 Nummer acht. Everything is going to be alright, 2007 16mm transfered to HD, 10’


"Guido van der Werve constructs possible scenarios and imaginary realities where various geographies collide in order to generate momentary sensations of unusual, dream-like intensity.(...) His performance-based film, Nummer acht. Everything is going to be alright , depicts an unusual journey that the artist undertakes, walking 15 meters in front of an icebreaker in the dramatic landscape of the Finnish Gulf of Bothnia. The performance lasts the time of one roll of film but this duration bears a sort of never-ending, hypnotic and meditative quality."
