Day with a Juniper 1-2

Annette Arlander

The two-channel video depicts a day spent with a juniper. On 3 August 2019 the artist spent a day with a juniper on Utö, Finland, performing for camera every hour between 7 am and 9 pm, sitting next to the shrub and lying down with her feet up next to it, writing some notes after each session. The material is edited into a two-channel installation (21 min 56 sec.), on the left Day with a Juniper 1 with the feet and on the right Day with a Juniper 2 (with text), with my back, including the spoken and recorded notes as a voice-over.
