"NATURE MORTE?"

EKSHIBITION - LYS OVER LOLLAND 2011 

 

I was invited to participate in an exhibition in an old paper factory: works from 10 different Danish set- and costume-designers. Each of us decorated a room in the building. Mine was an old laboratory. I worked kind of site specific in the fascinating interior.

I found different dead insects and bugs in the space when I first explored it. I was inspired by that to make a kind of old bio-laboratory - where the carefully collected species had come alive again and gone wild . Where the collection of butterflies was fluttering in the cabinets and the collected seeds had planted themselves and were growing all over the room.
