ANTHROPIA is a cinematic VR performance, in which video art, performance, installation art and VR meet in a
60-minute-long event. In CC’s 400 m2 hall visitors, wearing VR goggles, will wander freely through the installation, which correlates on a scale of 1:1 with the physical scenography of the exhibition space.
The work’s ceremonial narrative is divided into five chapters, in which the visitors are sent on a voyage through the virtual worlds of five different artists.
The experience takes place on a miniature golf course,
and the road to ANTHROPIA starts on Fairway 1. But with every step you take into the synthetic reality, all that was once familiar gradually dissolves, and a new reality takes shape.
ANTHROPIA is written and directed by Johan Knattrup Jensen and produced by Mads Damsbo. The artists responsible for the video chapters are:
Therese Willstedt (SE), Rikke Benborg (DK), Ali Abbasi (IR), Julian Juhlin (DK) and Johan Knattrup Jensen (DK).
ANTHROPIA is presented by art studio Makropol and exhibited at Copenhagen Contemporary.
