An event as part of the exhibition "Köln um halb acht"

Fragmented landscapes in an office

The footage of snow covered mountains, trees, clouds and water was shot through the windows of a tour bus driving to the Lofoten. The short sequences that were already cut with the camera show merely fragments of the Norwegian landscapes. The video is projected on multiple mirrors in turn fragmenting the images in the small office space of the Temporary Gallery. The chopped up planes of light appear on the corners, walls and the furniture of the room. Again, the landscape is fragmented and visible only through the window oft he closed office door. A small projection shines onto the driveway of the gallery.
