Simone Aaberg Kærns work “Point of Contact” have 4 elements:
1) High quality 4K video installation filmed with full movie crew, 12 horses and 12
2) A decorative presentation of hand build bows and 100 arrows.
3) An performative action where bows and the one hundred arrows are taken from the
walls by visitors and a mixed group of invited participants.
A mixed group of participants are invited to shoot bow and arrow – two people to one bow. Now the visitors are them selves shooting the hundred arrows, with a little white paint on the arrows they createtogether stars on a dark blue sky.
4) In the end of the action participants, help to take the blue wall into the gallery and
mount the star filled blue sky, next to the video projection.
“Point Of Contact” video, HD, 4 mins loop with loud sound.
The video: A beautiful summer day turns ugly with a normad attack: Mounted archers are targeting the visitor in a very confronting way as arrows are shot into the camera, surround sound design support the feeling of being targeted.
