Rendezvous Image


Larsen’s work often deals with weighty political issues but in an openended, poignant, poetic and at times humorous fashion. His work for Sharjah Biennial 9 is a video in which Indian workers based in Sharjah and their families in India are projected onto adjacent screens. The physical and metaphorical distance between the workers and their families is a space full of love, devotion, hope, loss and longing. Rendezvous aims to depict the accumulation of emotion contained within this abstract notion of space.
