Family Sha la la

1998 
Video-performance: 4:24 minutes
Camera and video stills: Nikolaj Recke

The Cuenca Rasmussens’ awkwardly dancing to the song, “Sha la la”, challenges the ideal of a family as a homogenous entity. The family practiced for eight hours in front of the camera. The video shows the last take.
