Er is een liedje dat je moeder vroeger voor je zong

Lucie van Collem (NL)

A spatial video installation about nostalgia, longing for the safety and security of childhood and the inevitability of growing up. In the installation, video works and set pieces come together in a dreamy fantasy world, in which animal characters play the main roles. They depict adult figures who are lost and disappointed in their lives or struggling to ground themselves in society. The title translates asĀ There’s a song your mother used to sing to you.

In her personal work, Lucie van Collem (1997, NL) likes to work with different media and materials, such as film, installations, miniatures, and absurdist (animal) costumes, which she brings together in dreamy fantasy worlds. Young Masters shows her graduation work for the Image and Media Technology programme, where Lucie obtained her Bachelor of Arts in 2023.
