Video ENTRE-TEMPS # 2 (MEANTIME #2) was shot in the empty space of the old building of the Jewish Museum of Belgium in Brussels, which awaits for its destruction. This building is loaded with a heavy history: first a mansion then school, it was later occupied by the Nazis during the Second World War – who used the floor where the video was shot as a prison. In 2014, the museum has been the target of a terrorist attack in which four people were killed. In the video, a female body establishes a dialogue with the architecture, history and the specific energy of the building. It is a building that pulses and limbo, and suspension. Performance by the dancer and actress Anna Tenta.
