Radish
Nan Hoover, 9'00''

Viewing this artwork is possible at the LIMA media library in Amsterdam


The video starts with close up shots of the inside of a yellow lily, the light slowly gets more or less intense, changing continuously. The blurriness of the image feels like we are inside of a dream. After some time, the perspective is changed to an outside point of view, still a close up but now we are seeing the lily’s yellow petals being modeled by the light. The light intensifies the color and form of the flower. The video ends with a close up of what appears to be the roots of the flower, again the intensity of the light changes from almost dark to a very light image. The extreme close up turns the image very abstract, decontextualizing the subject.
