“ The strategy of Lamers is intended to break through the prevailing perception of the public (city) space as social space by literally transforming this space into a theatre, where scripted scenes/stories are then acted out. Lamers uses the theatrical in two ways: in the staging of what she scripts to happen at the location and in the orchestrated spatial manner in which she presents her work. Likewise you could read her deployment (or perhaps rather the playing off) of different media in one work or installation as a strategy of alienation-an alienation that establishes distance and blocks easy interpretations…”
