Part of the project I am the River
The original video work "I am The River" was created specifically for Nikolaj Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center, which was originally a church. In this high-ceilinged room the 12 x 7 m. total installation occupies the altar's central position. The video is a one-on-one representation of part of the great Icelandic waterfall Gljufrarbui.
The title “I am The River” derives from the Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges, and indicates that man is subject to the flow of time. We are created by time, time flows so to speak inside us, but time also carries us along. We each have our own subjective time, we are born, grow old and die, but we are also part of a larger time, outside us. “I am The River” is a quite simple work, a modern landscape painting, a study of the power and beauty of nature and at the same time a dizzying plunge into the mysterious space of existence and metaphysics.
