Five video projections that follow the fictional "Sandra" through the utopian community of Christiania in Copenhagen. With an outsider's perspective she engages in the daily activities of the city, interweaving historical and factual information. Scenes are projected on separate screens with their own isolated soundtrack letting viewers walk through the space constructing their own narrative with the freedom promised by Christiania itself.

Radiodays/Radio Patapoe


Radiodays is a temporary radio station. Realizing a 'listening exhibition' rethinks ways of art presentation. By using an auditive format, artistic works are presented successively within a space rather than simultaneously: they appear, disappear and reoccur. The choice of using the medium radio at the same time attempts to give a voice to an actual concern towards the auditorial found in many works by visual artists.

An alternative: Radio Patapoe
