The installation synchronizes sound, light, and feathers to create fascinating aerial ballet. Njörd is a reference to the Scandinavian god of wind, and also refers to the refined contemporary Nordic design. The installation draws up a mysterious landscape between mythological scenery and modern space design.
Finally, it is a technical challenge that synchronizes sound, light, wind tunnel and moving elements.

“Don’t Try To Sell Me Your Fear”

Some Tracey Emin’s comments on feminism to mark “International Women’s Day 2015” 

(via: Phaidon Press) “…The press was cruel, because they didn’t just dislike my work; they disliked me, personally—my voice, the way I dress, the way I look, my attitude. I’m sure they wouldn’t have carried on that way if I were a man. I’m absolutely convinced of that.” In response to Christensen’s question:  You think that you were reviewed more critically because you’re a woman? Emin replies: “Yes,” adding, “When someone tells me I can’t do something, I say, “Yes, I can. Watch me.” And I think that can annoy some people. You know that double standard: when men shout, they’re ‘taking charge’ or ‘giving orders,’ but when women shout, they’re ‘screaming.’ It’s that kind of cliché.”
