A Scandinavian art student had a scare when the making of an art video went wrong.
With a video camera running, 26-year-old London-based artist Hilde Krohn Huse hung herself upside-down by her ankle from the branch of a tree, naked, with her face in the grass below.
The intention, Huse said, was to show a subject "being unable to free herself."
The problem arose when the video was finished and...Huse was unable to free herself. She had to scream for help for half an hour before finally being rescued by a friend.
Huse later appraised the video as "quite decent." The judges of the Bloomberg New Contemporaries exhibition apparently agreed, naming the Norwegian "one of the 37 brightest art prospects graduating in the UK."
(Although perhaps in this case "brightest" might not necessarily be the absolute most appropriate word...just sayin'.)
