Video installation

DAC Passage towards the harbor
Free entry



Experience the video installation Neutrino Ensemble, a film by the Argentine artist Cecilia Bengolea, created for the exhibition Yet, It Moves! at Copenhagen Contemporary. The video installation is also one of four installations in the Copenhagen urban space.

The film takes us on a journey into the world of neutrinos, the smallest and most abundant particles in the universe. Bengolea creates a spectacular visual interpretation of the particles’ movement, as if they were dancers in an ensemble.

By transforming cosmology and astrophysics into a dance, Bengolea connects performance with scientific disciplines as a method for studying anthropology, musicology, and cosmology. The choreography features the renowned performer Michelle Lámy, dancing and moving atop an experimental fountain designed by astrophysicist Thierry Foglizzo, simulating the attractive movements between massive stars, colliding, and creating the particles from which humans – and everything – are made.

The film is created in collaboration with astrophysicists from the DARK research center at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen and with Thierry Foglizzo at CEA-Saclay.

The film installation is displayed on LED screens in the DAC Passage as a collaboration between BLOX and the Cultural Quarter.

Visit the exhibition Yet, it moves! at Copenhagen Contemporary until December 30th, 2023.

Other video installations can be experienced at Sifs Plads, Refshaleøen, and Peblingesøen.
