How to Civilize a Waterfall
BY
Hanna Ljungh

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 work reveals humanity’s comical and paradoxical relationship with nature. The encounter becomes an emotional and almost spiritual experience – an encounter with one’s self.
