Constance Tenvik presented solo exhibition Gesamtkunst with Myself at Stockholm’s LOYAL which opened April 27 to June 3, 2017.
The installation re-enacts the medieval tale of Tristan and Isolde through sculptural objects, paintings sound and video, with “a cast of characters she plays herself in a schizophrenic structure.” Playing a director, a sailor, a hunter, a ship, the sky, a ghost and a lover from the past among other characters, Tenvik explores the ‘masked and unmasked.’
Plucking her own chosen themes that emerge from the storyline, she heightens the feelings that are kept hidden, and moments of reveal that cause ‘deathly misunderstandings.’**
