I Hate Sports
Jozef van der Heijden, Project, 09 Jun – 07 Jul 1996EN / NLPrint 

Exhibition consisting of two video projections ('I Hate Sports' and 'Hair'), a video on a small, vertical monitor ('Onze Vader / Our Father') and a sound piece ('3 Minuten Positief / 3 Minutes of Positivity'). The video 'I Hate Sports' shows the artist unsuccessfully attempting to do exercises after a night on the town. The sound piece '3 Minutes Positief' is a recording of the artist's friends who were each given 3 minutes to boast about themselves. Affixed as they are to the facade, the recordings are blatantly shameless. An exhibition on success or failure? Small mistakes transformed into small pleas for the inappropriate.
