Synopsis: Replacing the traditional cinema curtain, bouquet by Karø Goldt will precede the screenings of five of this year´s Wavelength programmes. Both a video installation and a work for cinema, bouquet is elegant and seductive act of sublimation, which transforms a still life of flowers onto a wondrous digital abstraction. Its slow, rapturous rhythms cycle through various colour combinations, each offering continuous, blending delight. (Andrea Picard, TIFF 07) Karø Goldt´s film bouquet is 100 minutes long, and shows the reduction of a bunch of flowers to its most basic visual form: colour, which slowly shimmers, murmurs and changes, like a speeded up passage of time. ( Laura McLean-Ferris, Artreview) A request for slowness and an attention to details. The representation of flowers, the most famous being those from Breughel, often takes on the form of a bouquet. They are an important source of inspiration in the presented film. The bouquet stands for diversity, wealth, the universal and the abundance, the entire life and human importance in a bunch of flowers. In bouquet order and symbolic meaning tell the story of the loss of innocence. Originating from digital photography the shape of the petals overcome their form by translating their color values.
