In photography, video and clothing created by artist Eva Tind, artist Sidse Carstens and dress designer Kristina Søndergaard the exhibition manifests a visual liberation of Marilyn Monroe.

Eva Tind examines how bodily and visual self presentation is created. She works with gesture and isolates and mirrors the arms of Marilyn Monroe in search of the special energy and language of the body. The series of Marilyn’s arms is titled MM-Gesture.
In collaboration with Eva Tind dress designer Kristina Søndergaard transforms the mirroring to 3D. They have made a selection of images from MM-Gesture and transfer the energy of the images to a series of limited edition clothing.

Sidse Carstens works with a visual and spiritual liberation of Marilyn Monroe through video and images. Together with performance artist Ramona Macho and a spiritual medium, she seeks to change our collective understanding of Marilyn Monroe through rituals and manifestations.
