Making a birthday cake with my mother
HD Video/Installation
7'48"
2010
Realized with the support of the Fonds BKVB

For this video Beckers invited his mother to make a cake together, a cake that she always makes at birthdays of their family. The video doesn't show a scene of love and familiarity. Instead it takes place in a unpersonal, theatrical set, where an interaction between the artist and his mother is almost completely absent.
This video was presented at Jeanine Hofland Contemporart Art together with a short story explaining the history behind the video.
