About the work:

Anastasis was woven together with the project of setting focus on Danish painter Per Kirkeby’s vast ceiling- and wall-painting of the same name in the Auditoriehuset (Auditorium House) at the Aarhus Universitet.  Together with Mogens Christensen and musicians from the Århus Sinfonietta, children from two schools were to  “coax” sounds and music out of the 500 m2 big painting.

The work Anastasis is Mogens Christensen’s impression of the painting.
