Rainy Day in Rekdal - Grey Day in Rekdal

Annette Arlander

The two-channel installation consists of two attempts at spending time together with a downy birch on the shore in Rekdal, Lofoten, on 19 July 2017 for a moment in rain and on 20 July 2017 for a day once every hour, beginning at 10 am and finishing 10 pm. The notes written during the day are added as a voice-over, as an alternative.
