The work of Lin Gerritse (*1988) evolves out of an experimental process, which stays visible in the pragmatically put together installations. Their visual aspects seems to be secondary, as their functionality and the production of sound often leads to the composition of the material. The mainly found and collected objects all refer to their own history which gets morphed together to a new playful narrative. One could think of the installations as small ecosystems, where every movement has an influence on the rest, each particular object is waiting for the moment of its action. Similar to a body, the whole would collapse in case one function fails. Gerritse oeuvre can be read as an homage to the absurd, a try to undermine functionality through its creation without function; to perform gestures without a cause but for the sake of their liberation from serving productivity.
