PORTRAIT OF MRS. ALVING
2 channel video and 4 channel sound installation in Gabriel Loci, Prague
HD video with sound (8:10 min), plastic
Commissioned by The JEDL Theatre Company
An abstract portrait of Mrs. Alving from Ibsen's Ghosts. Finding my way into the story of Ibsen's Ghosts the character and storyline of Mrs. Alving caught my attention with her many layers. A many-faceted character that is just as modern and sharp now as she was then - with four stages of character development "caught" into four chapters of video in my audiovisual installation.
The installation was part of and the entryway to the opera IBSEN project - an experimental opera directed by Jan Nebeský with music by Matouš Hejl and libretto by Lucie Trmíková (who also played Mrs. Aving in the opera).
