WORKS

Imagination, Space and Liberty, 2005

Video projection, 5 x 5 m.

The Showroom, Copenhagen



Frank Franzen is showing this video projection in a white box, a box open at one end, and with a transparent back-projection screen at the other. In the video we see a seagull hovering over a reversed fan or propeller, situated in the bottom of the picture. The wings of the seagull and the blades of the propeller are reflecting each other. The video runs in a short loop, keeping the seagull flying forever and ever. It is a poetic video, but at the same time, it also frames some overall ideas about the concept of The Showroom series, and, on a metaphorical level, the juxtaposition of opposites related to the project, such as reality/illusion and freedom/restriction.

The titel, Imagination, Space and Liberty, underlines this reading, and at the same time points to a more general comprehension in terms of associations connected to each of the words in the title.
