PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Saga Blot Installation was created for the Nordatlantens Brygge exhibition in 2004. The Danish name Saga Blot means a thing of the past and focuses on the relationship between nature and civilization. It questions man's place in the past and present, with emphasis on ethical and environmental dilemmas.

The installation comprised of three rooms. The first contained a few Púpa  lamps and the visitors were required to remove their shoes and hang their socks on a string. Icelandic wool sock were then provided. Red wool led the visitors into the second room, where a large red Púpa was surrounded by smaller hanging ones. Visitors were able to lay within the large one and listen to music that came from within the smaller ones. The last room contained the large black Gummi Púpa , which again was surrounded by smaller hanging ones. There was also a stuffed baby seal wearing a gas mask travelling around on wheels.

The visual installation was accompanied by an original musical composition by the author and performance artist T.S Høeg. The music was a hybrid reminiscent of the North Atlantic musical language: from the hymn drum dance to the contemporary composition.
