Hotel Pro Forma—Amduat (2021)

My close collaborators for many years, the internationally acclaimed performance company Hotel Pro Forma and artistic director Kirsten Dehlholm, asked me to contribute a large-scale video projection for their newest performance Amduat.

may 2021, Republique, Copenhagen, DK

For Hotel Pro Forma I created a 28 meter wide video projection, using found material sourced from historical depictions of the ancient Egyptian mythologies of the underworld and the afterlife.

The historical source material was merged with various contemporary hospital textures and fabrics, reanimating the historical material and bringing it into a contemporary context.
