Icon Ria Brieffies
2009-2010
Tempera on wood, video in loop, subtitled in English (13:03 minutes)
Video portrait of the artist's mother finishing an icon of the artist's favourite Dutch singer Ria Brieffies from the girl group Dolly Dots who died in 2009 of lung cancer. Brieffies' coffin was carried to the grave by her fellow Dolly Dots singers, all wearing high heels. The icon is based on a collage made by the artist. In the video the artist and his mother talk about icons and their rules, and religion versus pop culture.
