This installation is an identical mirrored double space, a spatial “mise en abyme” of the Spectator’s sense of “being there”. The only object in the room is a record player that plays the song “Each man kills the thing he loves” sung by Ingrid Caven, an exerpt from “The ballad of Reading goal”, a poem by Oscar Wilde. This music was written by Peer Raben.
