Retreat 2016

HD, video installation, screens lowered in the ground, 55” screen, 5,35 min, without sound.

Retreat is inspired by Elizabeth Tegners work Gravmæle on the artists mother and depicts a woman in a dynamic disappearance, a body rotating on itself and moving within the bounds of the visible and invisible. The works explores the twofold motherly pain contrasting the stationary materiality in Tegners works with the soft and shy, while the woman constantly disappears and returns in a sculptural cycle of rebirths.
