‘Scratch’  2022

In March 2022 Peter Bogers combined a presentation of his new audiovisual installation 'Mutenies' with a performance called 'Scratch' in the historic boiler room of Bogers’ old primary school in Dordrecht. I a small backroom of this dark cellar he scratches the surface of the walls or floor with one hand, and at the same time films this action in extreme close-up with a microscope camera with the other hand. The result is shown on a smaal LCD screen that blocks the doorway to this backroom.The subtle scratch sound are specifically hearable during the moments when the combined work ’Mutenies’ is silent. ‘Mutenies’ reflects on Bogers’ experience with a disruptive tinnitus; a 9000 Hz beep in the center of the brain.
