2011 | Performance | 7 minutes
In this performance, performed several times during the RijksakademieOpen 2011, Beckers discusses the issue of fear and especially how to deal with it. How to deal with a fear of heights, a fear of death or the fear of a parent that one of their children might have injured himself. This after telling a personal story from his youth in which Beckers' mother reacts indifferent after he tell her he just fell out of a tree.
In the performance Beckers comes up with three options to deal with fear, represented by three colorful, geometrical objects. In the end he chooses to use option number three. A choice that has dire consequences for his mother.
Realised with the support of the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten
