"The past, the future, dwelling there, like space, inseparable together"
Walt Whitman, Kosmos
Inseparable Together is a collaboration between myself, performance artist Nana-Francisca Schottländer and composer Ellen Birgitte Rasmussen. For this project we have visited different places and islands around the Danish Wadden Sea creating material from spring, summer, fall and winter, 2017-18.
The Wadden Sea is a shallow body of water with tidal flats and wetlands in the southeastern part of the North Seas, rich in biological diversity and inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
By interacting with the Wadden Sea we have tried to examine the relationship between humans and nature - including our own human nature. Through the tidal waters and wind, waves, patterns, repetition and variation, conflicts, unpredictability and beauty, we become aware of how small and unimportant we ourselves are, but also of what effects we humans are having on the world around us. We are part of this world, our earth, the universe, and it is part of us too. For me, it is at the same time a feeling of power and fragility.
