Inge and Gabriel Tranter’s video installation Liden Karen was part of Alert BunkerLove Festival 2013 in bunker no. 62 in the Hirtshals bunkers, and part of People’s BunkerLove Festival 2013 in the tunnel bunker at Furreby beach. The story of Liden Karen’s resistance to the overtures of a King and her subsequent death after incarceration and torture tied the traditional folk song to the themes of occupation and resistance.

Liden Karen video installation was exhibited for Alert BunkerLove 2013 in Hirtshals and for the People’s BunkerLove 2013 Furreby. Photos by Chris Brock and Inge Tranter. Gabriel also exhibited in Aros in 2012 as part of Catch 12.
