This is the video installation “Linking” which I made in 2011, for an exhibition with the same title (only in Danish; “Kobling”).
I also released a book the day of the exhibition opening; 16.of April. “Heart Matters – a round abouts and previous pieces.”
The book script was the starting point of the project. I took the script to the local fine artist Margit Enggaard and asked her if she wanted to do something together. She did! 🙂
So she created wonderful, big, colourful paintings inspired by my poems. And I used the book script to make video pieces, filming her paintings and her gallery and using that on the visual side, with my reading of the poems, some turned into songs, on the sound side… I used photos of Margit´s paintings as illustrations in my book.
Apart from Margit´s painings and gallery, I filmed nature and sculptures in Denmark, Norway and Hastings, UK.
There are ten poems and five songs in the installation.
38 minutes long. Hope you enjoy it!
