“In the video How to Civilize a Waterfall, artist Hanna Ljungh performs an authoritative confrontation with nature, an indifferent and independent force. Inspired by the dramatic expressiveness of hard rock music, Ljungh challenges a waterfall and tries to persuade it to turn into a hydroelectric power plant. The text used in the video is based on the information about hydroelectric power distributed by one of Sweden’s largest power companies. The work reveals humanity’s comical and paradoxical relationship with nature.” – more info over at the artist’s website
