Francine (was a machine)
Kunsthall Trondheim January 17 – April 28, 2019
“I want to tell a story” – that’s how the film which loans its title to this exhibition, starts. The story that Marte Aas is relating to is the one about René Descartes’ mechanical daughter, a fable about a man of rationality and science creating a human-looking machine in the place of his dead daughter Francine. During a travel through a storm at sea, the seamen discovered the doll in Descartes’ cabin and horrified threw it into the ocean.
