A set piece from Gabriel’s short animated film The Singing Gate. Created for a song on Ber's album Fort Growing - which is out now. If you'd like to have a look at the music video, it can be seen in Gabriel's 'Me At Work' section. The set was originally a 65 cm x 90 cm canvas. This has been sawn in half, and nails were used to fix the canvas to the middle partition (see last picture of the back), to create this stand alone piece of the house.
The Singing Gate was covered in Dezeen magazine, which can be viewed here: http://www.dezeen.com/2015/08/01/gabriel-bohmer-ber-singing-gate-music-video-paper-marionettes/
The Singing Gate features handmade marionettes constructed from paper, fabric, and wood. The pieces reflect the minimalism of the track in their simplicity and colour spectrum. With everything made to mirror the album's textural quality - which was recorded through an old, and slightly broken, turntable speaker.
