Artist: Larissa Sansour
“Heirloom” features works by Danish-Palestinian artist Larissa Sansour. Working through different media, Sansour creates pieces which draw inspiration from the science fiction imaginary, revolving around memory, history and identity as key elements. The creation of science fictional worlds allow Sansour to experiment with imaginaries and future scenarios, in which individual experiences and collective narratives intertwine. For the Danish Pavilion the artist presents a two-channel science-fiction film, entitled “In Vitro” and staged in the town of Bethlehem decades after an eco-disaster, an architectural intervention and a sculptural installation. The latter reproduces on monumental scale an object from the film, to further explore its protagonists’ vicissitudes.
