Danica Dakić created her new video and sound installation Safe Frame at the MMK in collaboration with 23 Crespo Foundation grant recipients. The latter are participants in the foundation’s “SABA” programme, which supports young immigrant women in making up for graduation. Paul Almásy’s work Louvre, Paris from the photographic collection of the MMK forms the point of departure for the installation. Taken in 1942, the photo
shows an exhibition gallery in the Louvre in which, on account of the evacuation made necessary by World War II, only empty frames were on view instead of paintings. Dakić uses cinematic means to give the viewer the feeling of literally being in the photograph. At the same time, various audio tracks are to be heard coming from an empty, largescale picture frame. The result is a complex composition of sound patterns in
which the voices of the SABA grant recipients merge with the ambient noise of the museum.
