● Jardin Artificiel

Video installation at Kunst Vinduet (Havneholmen 80, CPH) inspired by the Dada film Ballet Mécanique from 1924. The site specific installation is composed as an artificial garden, complete with a fence, a bench, a swing and an easel with an artist’s rough sketches of his model. The video is an animated remake of a scene probably shot by Man Ray. My work is exploring the concept of abstraction.
