The video feeding is a performance-video which approaches the care for another person up to the point that he/she comes first and the nurturer gives up her own needs in the interest of the other. In this case it is visualized in the romantic setting of an relationship.
The woman eats and drinks, does not swallow but instead gives the chewed food and wine to the other (the man).

(performed by Jasmina Kirsch and Paul van Sprundel)

The two videos are two separate works but were shown in one installation when they were exhibited earlier. This installation was meant as a representation of the two sides of our relationship at that time. You could also hear the sounds of despair from the video ‘beating’ while watching ‘feeding’ which gave an extra layer to the installation
