Liquidation (2022) is a work by Brianna Leatherbury.

Liquidation is a hybrid site-specific installation and film that documents the Netherland’s dispossession of certain histories and industries through its real estate. The installation consists of a greenhouse humidifier inhabiting several properties owned and auctioned by the Dutch Government online. Instead of water, the humidifier rhythmically fills these buildings with a mist of artificial sweat.

Liquidation documents the historical dispossession of each building by its state for profit, with the humidifier as the ghostly and efficient protagonist. It collapses these different spaces and temporalities, as well as the economies they were attached to, into one hybrid virtual space.

Liquidation was developed as part of the Summer Sessions Network for Talent Development in a co-production of Metamedia and V2_ Lab for the Unstable Media. The exhibition of Liquidation was opened on Thursday, September 1, 2022 in the HUiU gallery in Pula.
