Nizayama Forest Art Museum, Toyama / Japan

A place between fiction and reality, between kitsch and solemnity. Filmed in 2018 for the exhibition Waldmärchen, in a former hydroelectric plant, the video is a collection of short episodes that all share the same fixed camera position in the center of the building. Each tableau begins with the selection of a piece of music that is in some way connected to the unique industrial architecture of the building. The music, the building, landscapes, pieces from old fables and popular culture form a colorful tapestry of stories, sounds and thoughts.
