Prelude, Forever In A Marble Past is a slide work that is based upon from the text Last Year in Marienbad by Alain Robbe-Grillet from 1960 and that was rewritten by Hendrikse. The text is a description of the beginning of a film and guides us through a large building (a museum or a hotel?). It leads the viewer through a number of corridors along a garden towards a large room where we are witness of the end of a theatre play by sculpture-like figures.
