Ritterbex (born in 1985, lives and works in Amsterdam) installation at the Ornis A. gallery shows sculpture in combination with video art and drawings.  Many 'footage' was collected on a journey through Israel. Fascinated by borders, not literally borders the every day news talks about, more borders of shame is wat intrigues her. on a playful way our "contemporary visual world’s YouTube bloggers" expose to a large audience the most intimate room of their houses. As if they were actors in their own habit. A parody without a reason.  Scenes of herself, a painted body, hot sun touching it, reflecting of sunlight makes it all even more vulnerable. Gallery walls will be black painted a white square in the middle, in a corner a spy camera sees everything the viewer can see on a flatscreen in the next room. In the end we are all “credit card holders and google users” but are we aware of this? Video’s will show an collage way of working, images in combination with computer-generated animations.
