The Door

The Door is a film installation commissioned by MUDAM Luxembourg, Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, in response to the Sanatorium Paimio – Mobilier d’une Chambre installation by Alvar & Aino Aalto. The viewer’s eye is led into the room from the frame of the door (the same size as the original door). Through the camera, the viewer looks around the room of a tuberculosis patient and zooms in on the outstanding details of the furniture. Positioning and lighting enable the same elements to continuously tell a new story about the life and the state of mind of the objects who temporarily occupied the room.
