A video installation by Valdimar Jóhannsson, Erna Ómarsdóttir and Pierre-Alain Giraud.
The human eye is selective, seeing only what it wants to see. What if you could see everything? Every crinkle. Every vessel. Every imperfection. The true vulnerability of the exposed human body. 
Experience the body as a beautiful landscape – both pecular and foreign to the human eye.
Life in the Undergrowth premiered at The Winter Lights Festival in Reykjavík February 1st-4th 2018 where it was projected on two large oil tanks.
