Commissioned by conceptual artist Marc Bijl, Claudia Crobatia created this video for his new wave / post punk band Götterdämmerung. Claudia already had the idea to visualize a dream of hers; to dance in blood, and when she asked Marc about his thoughts behind the song and he literally replied with “a young confused girl, dancing in a puddle of blood”, she knew it was a match made in heaven.
She casted the talented young Dutch actrice Lisa Smit to embody her and create this video which is undoubtedly also strongly inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining and Lolita.
Marc Bijl (1970) is the biggest rebel in the Dutch art world nowadays. His work, consisting of installations, sculptures, interventions in public space, videos and paintings, strongly goes against the web of ideas and systems that we are often trapped in, such as religion and commercialisation.
The video was part of an exhibition at the Groninger Museum.
