It's March 21, 1945. You're a young navigator in the Royal Air Force, sitting next to your co-pilot in a mosquito bomber. You’re flying in formation—a swarm of combat aircrafts all headed for the same target: the Gestapo headquarters in Copenhagen. But in the critical minutes leading up to the planned attack, a sudden explosion wreaks havoc and disorients you…Can you confirm the target now? Should you drop the boms? And where should you drop them? Even the slightest mistake or delay can mean life or death for you, for your pilot and for the civilians on land.

SHADOW is a realistic virtual reality experience based on the British air raid against the Shell House, during which a calamity led to the accidental bombing of Institut Jeanne d’Arc, causing the death of more than 120 individuals, 86 of whom were children.

Created as an original companion to the feature film THE SHADOW IN MY EYE (SKYGGEN I MIT ØJE) by Ole Bornedal, depicting the life at the school before, during and after the bombing, SHADOW simulates the tragic event, seen through the eyes of a young RAF-navigator.

Experience "Shadow" in @nfbio_viborgfotorama November 29 between 3-8 pm

Did you miss Paul McCarthy during #VAF21? Or would you like to experience "A&E VR Experiment Adolf/Adam and Eva/Eve" again?

The installation is available right until January 16th, 2022! You can even visit @viborg_kunsthal for free every Thursday evenings 7pm-9pm

The experiment takes you to a virtual reality where Adolf and Eva exist in endless numbers. The characters wander around the animated environment and repeat abusive and violent acts, both physically and verbally.
