Village fig. 2 / Counting the Parts   2001

Installation view, 162 von 172 Häusern stehen an der Hauptstraße…,
Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig, 2001

162 of the 172 houses in an average Danish village are photographed frontally, as they are seen from the public street. 81 of these photographs are included in the slide projection. A calm female voice with an indefinable accent counts and calculates architectural elements: the details and the qualities of the architecture of the house façades in the village as they appear from the road. The slides and the audio track are not synchronized.
