Psychics IV : Sally Degener-Porter/ De Appel, Nieuwe Spiegelstraat 10, Amsterdam
Video, 20 mn, 2006

A series of psychic readings of spaces, commissioned by the artist in an attempt at connecting with the past of domestic or exhibition spaces, despite the limitations of rational discourse. 
The video is not edited, respecting the actual duration of the performance.
In this particular case, the psychic is looking at the past of the De Appel building, which used to accommodate the Jewish bank Lippmann, Rosenthal & Co.
