Kut, Kanker, Tiefus, Pleuris, Tering / 2012

Series of five Holocubes (*)

Hoogerbrugge’s Holocubes showcase the wealth of the Dutch language. Each hologram consists of one Dutch swear word represented by thick gold letters that orbit endlessly around Hoogerbrugge’s animated head. The Dutch words translate as: Kut (Cunt), Pleuris (literally: Pleurisy; Get Stuffed), Tiefus (Typhus), Kanker (Cancer), Tering (literally: Tuberculosis; Drop Dead/Fuck Off), so it’s no wonder that Hoogerbrugge looks as if he is chewing off his own tongue in the projections (2).
