33 minute installation / video work from
field recording & video footage, looped. 2014

As a sequel to AION, Kirkegaard's new sound and video installation STIGMA created especially for Mori Museum (MAM Project) in Tokyo, works with the natural landscape of Fukushima

Inspired by hanging scroll landscape painting Kirkegaard fills a five meter vertical screen with idyllic nature scenes. By recording and layering their ambient sound, the resonances of these outside spaces are revealed. STIGMA challenges the perception of a nature we usually embrace

Commissioned by at Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, 2014. Created by Jacob Kirkegaard, Fukushima & New York, 2014. Video compositing by Bruce Tovsky, New York 2014. Thanks to Takashi Arai
