- stage setting for the performance ELYSIUM.
A coherent installation shaped as a holy cathedral with archetypical characters connecting to our concept of the original religious dimension of man, understood as the encounter between male and female, life and death, nature and culture. The stage was set up in a 500-m2 big darkened hall in Galschiøt's workshop. The arrangement consisted of the cocoon shields, gas torches, totem like copper sculptures, water fountains, archetypical copper sculptures, 24 tons of sand, 20 tons of stones, cloth, light effects etc. - in addition paintings of the surrealist Bjoern Haugaard. The performance included more than 50 dancers, actors and musicians. The project was supported among others by the Cultural Foundation in 1995.

Documentation: two professional video programs (TV2). Book with photos and an interview.
