BEEN WAITING FOR YOU SO LONG (3:36 min, 2012) is a filmatic work by Austrian artist Claudia Siefen about the gesture of lifting an apron in film. Within the context of the story, lifting an apron signifies that something important is about to happen afterwards. In leaving that out and only showing the act of lifting, the artist evokes a certain sense of flirtation while watching these simple gestures; these scenes are accompanied by the gut-wrenching sound composition of a jackhammer, an analog printer, heavy rain and a freewheel. Siefen’s work will be exhibited as part of the MOOD ROOM exhibition, curated by Lidewij Edelkoort at M°BA CENTRAAL from June 9 – July 21, 2013.
