Artists are by nature, eccentric, unique and truly one-of-a-kind. They have their own ways of expressing themselves in ways majority of the public would not easily understand. We wonder how projects in art classes would be like that. We hope not all are as awry as this one.
Meet artist Hilde Krohn Huse. She is originally from Norway but has been living in London since she was a young child. For a video project for her art class, the 26-year-old woman decided set up a piece of rope art to a tree in the middle of the woods in Norway.
She then rolled the tape and a naked Huse suddenly flashed into the screen. She started hanging her feet to the knotted parts of the rope and made all sorts of poses. Throughout the video, it was obvious that she had difficulties removing her right foot from one of the knotted ends; nonetheless, she continued with her project. But when the video reached the 8:21 mark, she could not contain it anymore: she needed help and called for it. Luckily, one of her friends was within earshot and helped her get out of the mishap.
Watch the video here:
“The video ends when the camera shuts off, but I was there calling for help for another 30 minutes,” Huse recalled. “I felt sick when I saw the video for the first time, I experienced everything anew. But I slept on it and realized that the video is quite decent.”
Now, this video project was chosen to be a part of the famed Bloomberg New Contemporaries exhibition, where works of top fine arts graduates in the UK would be presented.
