Drømte mig en drøm i nat / I DREAMT A DREAM LAST NIGHT
Årets Sanseudstilling 2011, for alle aldre fra 3+ på Kunsthallen Brandts
The exhibition is a spatial sensory installation created in collaboration with artist coallegue Seimi Nørregaard. The 200 sqm. exhibition scenario holds a universe of video projections, sound stories, narrative light and sound, produced and build on site for Kunsthallen Brandts specifically for the audience children from age 3 and up.
The titel is taken from the Nordics' oldest known folk song with sheet music. The song was originally written in runes.
The exhibition koncept is inspired by Teatro Olimpico in Italy and The Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza was constructed in 1580-1585 by Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio. The trompe-l'œil onstage scenery, designed by Vincenzo Scamozzi, gives the appearance of long streets receding to a distant horizon. The size ratio between the buildings elements are contorted on purpose, in order to create an illusion of higher distance between objects. The perspective tricks the eyes perception of distance and depth.
The exhibition Drømte mig en drøm i nat / I DREAMT A DREAM LAST NIGHT is a physical experience of a painting unfolded from its frame to a spatial perspective. The components trees, buildings, mountains, road and sky, have all been spread out in the exhibitions space:
A yellow path winds around the trees and houses. The backside of the elements is a lilac color scala in sharp contrast to the yellow road. Behind the houses are different rooms: a mirrored bed, stories in a cabinet, a fur den, a miniature 1:20 cm model of the total installation.
At the end of the road a mountain range runs along the wall. A mountain range for the kids to climb and run on or walk in through a tunnel. There is a round hole that changes between sun and moon that the kids can crawl through to an area with gauzy white material. On the other side of the white light room, the children can run back to the benches, and have a view over the whole installation again.
At night projections of silhouettes of kids in the trees tell stories of dreams or nightmares, and windows in the houses light up the night.
