Horse Inside Out

Set design
2019-2020




This project was made together with Wunderland, where I was a part of the set design/visual artist team. We've created tactile textures for the immersive sculpture-installation and performance piece, under the creative leader Mette Aakjær’s vision.
The skulpturer was at ARoS Art Museum from January 3rd to the 16th of February, and in the fututre it will be at Reykjavik Art Museum, Iceland and Gallery Ahjo, Joensuu, Finland.

The art piece is a hybrid of sound, spoken poetry, installation art, performance, dance and kinetic interaction.

The creative team behind the horse is: Mette Aakjær (artistic leader of Wunderland og performer DK), Mona Møller Schmidt (set designer, DK), Thoranna Bjørnsdottir (komponist, IS), Sonja Winckelmann Thomsen (writer, DK), Amanda Axelsen Sigaard (costume design, DK), DimsOs (technically interactivity , DK).



The horse is also a part of a scientific research project about perception and sense of reality by Interacting Minds Centre og AU Culture and Communication in Aarhus, ISLO – Education in Dance and Somatics at Eastern Finlands Sports Institute and Reykjavík University – Arts and Education.
