CAROLINE MONNET. TRANSATLANTIC

10 February - 16 May 2021
SCHIRN ROTUNDE

For Caro­line Monnet (b. 1985), the Atlantic Ocean links the two sides of her iden­tity, shaped by her Algo­nquin ancestry in Canada and her French ancestry in Europe. The SCHIRN presents, in its Rotunda, Monnet’s immer­sive video work Transat­lantic (2018, 15 min.), which docu­ments the artist’s twenty-two-day journey by cargo ship from Europe to Canada.

Mirrored at the center and accom­pa­nied by a sound­track of Morse code and radio frequen­cies in a filmic montage, the images of the Atlantic crossing exert a forceful pull. This contrasts with the static equi­lib­rium of the three concrete spheres of Prox­imal I, II, III (2018/2020) which, in the SCHIRN, are combined with the video work to create a powerful instal­la­tion.
