This video sets up a conversation between artist Sidsel Christensen and art collector Thomas Frankenberg which encompasses philosophical reflections on his collection, including the status of the object in terms of an exploration of texture, proximity, meaning, preservation and disappearance. As the camera travels through the collection, and the conversations unfolds, we are presented with a journey through a landscape bordering on abstraction, in which fragments of art objects and natural elements join in unexpected ways, suggesting their own logic of encounter.
