installation powered by wind and plays versions of the song "Gloomy Sunday.", 2012
collaboration with Holly Streekstra
"Gloomy Sunday" is a song composed by Hungarian pianist and composer Rezső Seress and published in 1933. Seress wrote the song at the time of the Great Depression. The installation is focusing on the analogy between the current economical and political situation and the great depression of the 1930's. The song Gloomy Sunday (Szomorú Vasárnap) became well known throughout much of the English-peaking world after the release of a version by Billie Holiday in 1941. There is a recurring urban legend that claims that many people committed suicide with this song playing.
