Re-enacting of the first encounter with my ex boyfriend Xavier and interviewing him about our time together and how it all ended in Barcelona. Staged at Cercle Sant Lluc, an old model draw classroom in the center of Barcelona for the exhibition Amateur.
“Twelve years ago I went to Barcelona for half a year and that’s where I met my first big love, Xavier. We lived together, we had great sex, we had our problems, and after one and a half years we broke up quite dramatically. It wasn’t like we remained good friends or anything. Now after more then ten years, I am back in Barcelona, and I am in a friends apartment waiting for Xavier, who will ring the doorbell in a few minutes to be interviewed by me. We had totally lost touch, so all I know about Xavier is that he is now 53 years old – one year older than my father when he died. I will be 38 in two months, and I ‘m curious.”
