Rutger Emmelkamp, Vladimir Mindek
From January 16th 2004 to February 21st 2004
Exposition

I married a widow with a grown daughter. My father fell in love with my step-daughter and married her thus becoming my son-in-law, and my step-daughter became my mother because she was my father's wife. My wife gave birth to a son, who was of course my father’s brother in law, and also my uncle for he was the brother of my step-mother. My father’s wife became the mother of a son, who was of course, my brother, and also my grandchild. Accordingly, my wife was my grandmother because she was my mother’s mother—I was my wife’s husband and grandchild at the same time—and as the husband of a person’s grandmother is his grandfather—I AM MY OWN GRANDFATHER!

Vladimir Mindek was born in Ostrava, Czechoslovakia and now lives in Montréal. He studied Fine Arts at Concordia University. His work has been shown in various video events across Canada and in France.
