Nachtkoorts (Night fever) - Frank Theys, 2011

Nachtkoorts is a portrait of a character with anxiety disorder. The installation is inspired on the story The Cave by Franz Kafka. It's depicting a secluded man, locked up in his own world he cultivates his fear. Leaving his apartment he tentatively reaches out for help. Sound, image, editing and presentation are constructed to enhance the identification of the audience with the disturbing experience of the protagonist, to literally get inside his head.
