Excerpt of video

2014

Dual screen video installation, 9 min. 50 sec., 2 spinning chairs, 2 back projection screens.

 

Anne Haaning received the national solo award for the work How to Other in the Spring Exhibition 2013, and was granted a solo show in the historical exhibition halls of Kunsthal Charlottenborg in 2014.

 

Delete is a large video installation based on the interaction between two types of memory: the human and the digital.

 

The spinning chairs in the work are intended to provide an interactive counterpart to the traditional benches in exhibitions. For the audience, the chairs function as mobile devices of editing the video material, which incorporates a range of digital representations of the chairs.

 

Delete underlines how pervasive and blurred our relationship with the digital world has become: how our perception of representation, space and reality isn’t only limited to the tropes of the physical and sensory, but also evolves from what we experience in the digital sphere.
