Security

2005
Security contains a single projection on a big screen as well as 7 small LCD screens, featuring 7 men who work in the most stereotypically masculine profession: security bouncers in posh night clubs in Ibiza. In the small screen these men are shown standing next to their working place, and in the big projection each of them removes his cloths until completely naked, peeling away the layers of power and protection his images showers upon him. The installation illustrates the transformation the men are going through, and the tension between strength and vulnerability.
