when the world becomes our body

The artists Benjamin Skop & Amund Bentsen investigates the relationship between human and nature. In four grand video projections the human body and the tidal landscape meet each other, blurring the boundaries between our body and the world. 

In a world where sea-level rise and climate change are difficult to relate to, the tidal landscape can show us that dramatic changes can occur so gradually that they go unnoticed – in a few hours the tidal water rises enough to swallow us completely. In the exhibition when the world becomes our body, the familiarity of the human body is at the center of the pictures, while the body’s physical activity is minimized; thereby it becomes nature’s rhythm, temporality and weather, which dictates the creation and development of the pictures. In this way the human presence is supporting nature in its lead role.
