In Wim Catrysse’s Quartet (2002), a single-channel installation, we see four men bending over. The camera films them from a bird’s-eye view. The men are inside a dark space and seem to find it hard to keep their balance on the moving floor. Though the characters constantly move slightly, they seem frozen, waiting in relation to each other. There is a tension not only between the four men, but a tension that pervades the entire space, ready to burst out any moment.
