That Dream of Peace
March 2 - November 27, 2016
From the 2nd of March 2016 the artist Eva Koch takes over the underground territory of The Cisterns with video installations projected directly onto columns and walls.
The comprehensive exhibition ”That Dream of Peace” was made specifically for The Cisterns by Eva Koch. The point of departure for the art installation is the belief in life and growth despite the terror, wars and destruction of today’s world. Children play – also while bombs explode. Flowers sprout, even on muddy battlefields, and doves flutter freely between symbol and reality – between war and peace. These fundamental topics are unfolded by Koch in several video installations that light up the darkness of The Cisterns.
A large projection of 15 metres will be projected directly onto one of the dripstone-filled walls of The Cisterns. The visuals shift between images of playing children held in black/white and recordings of the quivering, red poppies of summer. Deeper into The Cisterns trees will flourish and cast of their leafs in and endless cycle, while white doves appear in a vision of cooing and beating wings.
Eva Koch’s poetic investigation of The Cisterns is on display from the 2nd of March untill the 27th of November 2016.
