Filmed and edited in collaboration with Alexandra Buhl

The exhibition was created in collaboration with photographers Alexandra Buhl and Frida Gregersen in a year-long embodied dialogue with the landscapes of Silkeborg. Exploring exchanges between watery human and other-than-human bodies in physical encounters with beings and phenomena inhabiting the forests and lakes of the region. The works revolve around intimacies across species and modes of existence, sometimes bordering on the erotic. 

 

For us humans, the flow and flush of waters sustain our own bodies, but also connect them to other bodies, to other worlds beyond our human selves.… the waters that we comprise are both intensely local and wildly global: I am here, and now, and at least three billion years old, and already becoming something else. ...A body of water also extends, transcorporeally, into other assemblages: watershed, cistern, sea; and other bodies that are human, vegetable, animal, and hydrogeological.
