Anouk de Clercq: Portal

Portal unfolds a space where you can drop your guard: a rhythmical, geometrical landscape, a soothing place made from sloping shapes and whispering sounds.
anouk de clercq depicts an 'interior landscape', a mental space built of cool shades of grey and fathomless horizons, rotating, tilting and caressing. An exploration of the limits of the utopian and the inner nature, in a longing for a place of enlightenment: 'here never alone'. The video was made on the occasion of secret gardens, a concept of centre for the arts limelight and cultural manifestation anno'02, for which several artists had been assigned to design a secret garden at various locations in the city of Kortrijk.
