Chaja Hertog graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 2005 with InstruMen, inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s musical hell, an experimental video triptych featuring musical instruments fused to musicians as body extensions, played by their movements and weight. 

For Bosch Parade, Chaja and her partner Nir Dadler now blur this line between musician and instrument even further with ‘the extended version’ InstruMensen, a floating musical installation featuring musicians playing their extravagant instruments with the choreography of their bodies. A performer with a singing saw on his head, percussionists, horns that make sounds and bubbles under water – together, the InstruMensen use their living bodies to make the kingdom of the dead resound.
