Marianna Simnett presents her work Faint with Light. How she first used fainting in her art, about the monstrous sound that took her completely by surprise, and her examination of fainting as a phenomenon: a personal association to her grandfather, who, during the Holocaust, avoided death by fainting at just the right moment, and traditional culture-historical views of fainting as a sign of the notorious female complaint of hysteria.
Created and produced by Copenhagen Contemporary in collaboration with Astrid Hald.
