Nordic Girl Strings Herself from Tree for Nearly Four Hours
Ryan Steadman reports: London-based artist Hilde Krohn Huse hung helplessly from a tree for 3.5 harrowing hours at the hands of… herself.
The artist, who is originally from Norway but has lived in London since she was young, decided to suspend herself from a tree with rope in a forest near Aukra, Norway as part of a video piece for an art class.
“I felt sick when I saw the video for the first time, I experienced everything anew. But I slept on it and realized that the video is quite decent.”

Clearly, something went awry, and the 26-year-old Ms. Huse found herself strung out in the buff, unable to free herself.
“The video ends when the camera shuts off, but I was there calling for help for another 30 minutes,” Ms. Huse told Norway’s VG newspaper about the incident. “I felt sick when I saw the video for the first time, I experienced everything anew. But I slept on it and realized that the video is quite decent.”

Hilde Krohn Huse (26) hang naken i et tre i en halv time før noen fant henne, men det ble litt av en video ut av det hele.
Videoen har vunnet Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2015, en konkurranse for engelske sisteårsstudenter. Premien er å få videoen utstilt i et storstilt galleri som åpnes opp i november – der vil verkene vises i ett år.
Hilde Krohn Huse er en av 37 andre som vil få sitt verk utstilt i galleriet som ligger på veien opp mot Buckingham Palace, men det var ikke planlagt at 26-åringen skulle lage vinnerfilm.
I utgangspunktet skulle Huse ut å filme en scene til en videoserie hun holdt på med. Hun gikk ut i skogen ved hjemstedet Aukra i Møre og Romsdal, rigget kameraet klart og begynte å henge i repet– så hektet foten seg fast.
– Der videoen slutter slo kameraet seg av, men jeg hang der og ropte på hjelp i 30 minutter, sier Huse til VG på telefon fra London.

“Everybody is videoing it, but nobody stops to make sure he was okay.”
— Carla Meyers, cousin
It was a bizarre and disturbing spectacle that drew a crowd of up to 30 people at a busy intersection in northwest Houston. Spectators pulled out their cell phones and began recording when they saw a naked man dancing in the median.
“He was doing the Beyonce, the surf board, twerking, the Nae Nae. Every dance that’s out there right now, he was doing. I didn’t know what was next.”
— Chad Arceneaux, witness
The man was spotted at the intersection of West Gulf Bank Road and Antoine Drive around 12:30 p.m. Neighbors said he’s been known to attract attention at a nearby complex, but they never expected this.
“…he’s been using embalming fluid to get high.”
