Watch the video Hour of Moth (Etude no. II) by Kim Mejdahl, which has recently been added to the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Hour of Moth (Etude no. II) is imaged as a visual poem divided in two – first an ambient intro where you step into the calmness of the forest, followed by a singing part with the artist himself lying on the forest floor in the style of some lyrical music video.
The film work is a declaration of love for nature which in the film is symbolised through the moths and their desire for light. It is a song about mankind’s enormous love of nature but also a song about how we struggle to read it – and a creeping realisation of the idea that mankind feels detached from nature.
Kim Richard Adler Mejdahl is educated at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Funen Art Academy. He has been awarded with Soloprisen 2018 for his spring exhibition at Charlottenborg Art Club.
