“Entrance” by previous artist-in-residence Anna Anders will be screened on during the weekend November 15-17. The video was recorded in SeyÃ°isfjÃ¶rÃ°ur June 2012 and many locals participated in the making.
Each sequence shows a building in SeyÃ°isfjÃ¶rÃ°ur from outside, and has a duration of 9:40 min. From time to time the inhabitants come out of the front door and water plants or call the cat, are busy with their children, clean the stairs, play an instrument or knit a sweater…Â accompanied by corresponding noises. The whole installation is a precisely tuned choreography of different events and sounds, creating a new village with colourful houses and nineteen short stories.
The process and timing of these activities were developed in collaboration with the participants. This video work is thus something between documentation, performance and fiction.
The entrance door serves as an interface between privateness and publicity, or as a theatre curtain on the worldÂs stage, on which men and women act.
