Liquid Properties, 2018
Commission for Munchmuseet i Bevegelse, Munch Museum, Oslo, 31 Aug - 23 Sept 2018
Liquid Properties, made in collaboration with Marjolijn Dijkman and commissioned by Munchmuseet on The Move, consists of the film Reclaiming Vision and an installation with glass sculptures. The film is a nature fiction film based on microscopy footage starring a cast of microorganisms from Akerselva and the inner Oslo Fjord, and filmed at Section for Aquatic Biology and Toxicology at the University of Oslo. Starting off from the assertion that looking evolved from the sea – eyes in fact evolved from marine algae – the film is a visual journey through various ways of looking at and relating to nature. The music is specially composed for the film by Henry Vega. Munchmuseet on the Move is a four-year, off-site curatorial project of contemporary art, curated by Natalie Hope O’Donnell.
