“In collaboration with a composer, writer, and filmmaker, Anya Janssen has created a Gesammtkunstwerk inspired by Ivy, a twelve-year-old girl who lives with her mother in a small red caravan. Somewhere in the Netherlands, amidst nature and animals, they live a life that has little connection to city life. This girl’s stories inspired Janssen to create an installation about the interaction (shape-shifting) between Ivy and her various environments.” read more
