Fire under snow
NEW FILM AND VIDEO WORKS AT LOUISIANA
A fascinating encounter with the best contemporary artists in the genre, including William Kentridge, Candice Breitz, Rineke Dijkstra and Ed Atkins.
Louisiana has an ambitious acquisitions policy and every year, with the support of generous foundations and private donors, adds new works of art to the collection in the fields of both contemporary and classic modern art. With Illumination and Fire Under Snow, Louisiana highlighted the collection with two major exhibitions of the new acquisitions of the past three years with the emphasis on contemporary art.
The exhibition Fire Under Snow featured a number of new video works and films in The East Wing of the museum. Curated as a grand tour of the moving pictures of video art, the exhibition's eight video works sorrounded the viewer with captivating stories about people, history and society, visions and the future.
