Tova Mozard: ILOVERUSS
With a background in the Hollywood film industry and entertainment culture, Tova Mozard explores what happens when the show ends, the cameras turn off, and we are left to create our own lives instead of being enveloped in the world of fiction.
In the work “ILOVERUSS”, which is completed for this exhibition at Nikolaj Kunsthal, the artist moves between fiction and documentary. The film is based on 20 years of footage of the person Russ, who works as an extra in Hollywood, and with whom Mozard has developed a very special relationship over the years. The friendship unfolds in a confidential space with room for quirkiness and vulnerability. It reflects being human for better or worse – even when you don’t necessarily have a specific purpose in life.
In addition to “ILOVERUSS”, Tova Mozard’s exhibition consists of the film “PSYCHIC” as well as a series of photos that, with Mozard’s delicate aesthetics in douche tones, thematises a search for a deeper meaning in life in a society where entertainment and consumption dominate everyday life.
Grand Opening: 25 May at 4-7 PM.
