REFLECTIONS ON LOVE
Madeleine Kate McGowan will move through Copenhagen starting at Nørrebro. During her walk, she will visit a series of selected places such as a kiosk, a florist, a private apartment, a church – places that form a central part of Copenhagen’s landscape, but which McGowan often just passes or interacts with more or less superficially.
Each place will open an interpersonal meeting, and McGowan will ask the people she meets to reflect freely on love. Over the twelve hours, the meetings will evolve into a series of short film portraits.
