Window

HD video, TRT: 7:43min.

Vinyl text, LCD TV and pedestal.

In the window of the Demo Room in downtown Aarhus (DK) a TV screen is placed featuring everyday life in Dubai (UAE). As spectators we passively become bystanders to the many by-passers on the pedestrian at the largest shopping centre in the world.

In the moment, we bring ourselves to a halt in front of the window; we transform our dynamic bypassing into a still leben of passivity. But regardless any scrutiny, life continues and the wandering of the by-passers maintain invariable – is it possible, we encounter without any notice?  

Window is part of a series of exhibitions by Koh-i-noor in the falls 2013 at the Demo Room.
