CENTARIUM | ALEKSANDER JOHAN ANDREASSEN
Glasshuset

Thursday 03 - Sunday 06 Sept

continuously

Staged and filmed in chosen shopping centers during mostly normal opening hours, a chain of events is started by a mannequin coming to life. A cleaner glimpses this, and the film follows these two characters' meetings and movements in, at times, identical settings.  First edition of Centarium has been produced primarily in the centres COOP OBS and AMFI in Mo I Rana, a town where shopping centres have had a defining impact on the public spaces.
