The Vitruvian Woman Video Installation

The Vitruvian Woman is an international video collaboration that will have its world premiere at Formverk, in Eskilstuna (Sweden).

Inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous drawing of The Vitruvian Man, video artists from around the globe are coming together to create a single multimedia sculpture called the The Vitruvian Woman.

The installation incorporates nine monitors, each representing the nine regions of the body: head, heart, stomach, sex organ, right arm, left arm, left leg, right leg, and feet.

Twenty-Nine artists from 14 countries have collaborated on this multimedia sculpture, which premieres a total of 87 minutes of video art in simultaneous concert—resulting in a high-tech, gestalt portrait of the The Vitruvian Woman.
