Framför Konsten

The Modern museum of Art in Stockholm invites Charlottes Engelkes to perform in front chosen objects of the museums collection of art.

She chooses the Swan from Hilma af Klint, a mobile by Alexander Calder and a sculpture of Marcel Duchamp:

-I feel related to the circus that Alexander Calder created, his mobiles and relationship to space. The spiritual mission and cosmic knowledge that Hilma af Klint was a medium to fascinate me. And my music is Marcel Duchamp.

An Astarte production performed at the Modern Museum of Art /Stockholm maj 2009

-The basis of everything for me is the universe. The simplest forms in the universe are the sphere and the circle. I represent them by disks and then I vary them. My whole theory about art is the disparity that exists between form, masses and movement.

/ Alexander Calder
