Beyond Borders - Isabel Miquel Arqués in Dialogue with Karen Blixen
|Author||Isabel Miquel Arqués|
In 'Beyond Borders', the artist Isabel Miquel Arqués enters a dialogue with Karen Blixen (1885–1962), the Danish author whose best-known books, 'Out of Africa' and 'Babette’s Feast', were turned into successful movies. Arqués uses photographs, screen prints, and fragments of prose and poetry to link her own life with Blixen’s. She paid several visits to Rungstedlund, the author’s former home and now a museum, where she photographed objects that Blixen used every day. These triggered a parallel and highly personal story in Arqués’ own imagination, which gradually intertwined with that of Karen Blixen herself.
