The London-based Norwegian artist Hilde Krohn Huse has been ridiculed for weeks after it became known that a failed naked stunt was rewarded with an art award, NRK reports.
A video recording in Aukra in Romsdalen in Norway, which went terribly wrong, has received enormous attention in both British and Norwegian media, and in social media.
In connection with a film she made about Aukra, Huse was about to film a short sequence where she planned to hang naked upside down from a tree by her legs. But she instead trapped herself and it turned out that it was impossible to get free from the ropes. After many painful attempts she had to shout for help. The camera ran out of power, while Huse kept trying and crying.
After half an hour one of the friends that she had brought from London heard her cries and helped her out of the rope.
She showed the film about the failed stunt to her art friends, who (of course) thought this was a great film, despite the circumstances.
After some attempts to edit it, Huse concluded with the same, and decided to let the raw footage become a separate project.
Back in London, she sent the video "Hanging In The Woods" to Bloomberg New Contemporaries, a prestigious organization that supports artists in the starting block. They liked it. (Everybody loves humor).
- I had tried Bloomberg for four years I think, so it was the last chance this year, says Huse.
Now she is being ridiculed in social media, which is kind of understandable.
Here are just a few of the comments taken from her own YouTube Channel:
"If you checked this girls DNA the letters IDIOT would run clean through it."
"That's not art. That's an idiot. And not just because she got stuck."
"Did she shout "I dumb", "I DUMB" ?"
Well, have a look:
