More Info Works / Jenny


Jenny is a documentary video work filmed with one take. The protagonist of this video is a construction worker who walked by chance into the frame during the take. The worker who was having a break at Museum Island (Museumsinsel) in Berlin takes out his fishing equipment and starts fishing from the Spree riverbank. The event is recorded in the summer of 2014, when there was a large-scale renovation and modernisation project in the area. Therefore Jenny also serves as documentation for an ever-changing environment, which no longer exists as it is shown in the video. Composer Ilari Edelmann’s music resonates with the soundscape of the surroundings and works as a counterpoint to the depictive image of the work.
