The Curator

The video work “The curator” offers a glimpse into “behind the scenes” of the art world which characterize mainly biennials and large festivals. The work is using comic effects and describes the art scene as a detached, elitist bubble. The video is built as a trailer like in the Hollywood film industry. The quick short scenes tells the story – The revelation and the rise of the curator in the art world. Accompanied by a Hollywood style voice over narrator and a fast rhythm editing the work suggests a wider look on issues of our contemporary culture like idolizing celebrities and the instant superstars that are being born with each passing day.
