Nummer Twee – Just because I'm standing here, doesn't mean I want to

Guido van der Werve

Netherlands 2003, 35mm, col, 4 min

Nummer Twee appears to start with a ‘stunt’ in which the artist is knocked down by a car in the street. On the brusque cut that interrupts the image immediately afterwards follows a trip to a cinematographic dreamland. A riot-police van enters the street and five ballerinas alight to perform a short dance near the victim. The serial monotony of ordinary Dutch terraced houses serves as a background.” – Netherlands Media Art Institute Catalogue
