At the centre of the exhibition, visitors were shown Dr. Love on Easter Island (2006), a video filmed in the Pacific. For this departure from familiar territory, Krystufek chose Bas Jan Ader as a kind of alter ego. What if, the video asks, the artist who disappeared during an Atlantic crossing in 1975 got stranded on Easter Island? As ‘She-Bas’, the artist roams the home of the famous moai stone giants.
