VR Performance + Opening Ceremony by " Profeterne"
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.
