Tattered, volatile, fragile, and ambivalent.

Well-chosen words to describe the mental state of millions of people around the world. People who are shut inside their own thoughts, while simultaneously having access to a digital window with an uninterrupted view of the American election, civil war, terrorist attacks and abortion restrictions, all of which make you question whether time is moving forward, has stopped, or has actually begun sliding backwards.

At the same time, these words describe the feelings this exhibition wants to elicit in us. And it’s actually really nice, in such an uncertain time, to be able to go to a modern art experience with such a clear set of critical criteria. Does it work, or doesn’t it?

The exhibition is in a group format, assembling works from art students, newly graduated up-and-comers, and established artists, all giving fresh perspectives on the same theme through an array of different media.

There will be a vernissage from 18-19. If you can’t make it then, the exhibition will run from the 6th to the 29th of November. It will be open Thursdays from 17-19 and Saturday – Sundays from 13-16.

Artists:

- Frederik Vium (student of the Art Academy in Hamburg – performance, sculpture, and video.)

- Camilla Rasborg (graduate of Det Jyske Kunstakademi in 2002 – found objects in collages, paintings and reliefs.)

- Julie Clifforth (graduate of the Art Academy in Bergen in 2014, currently studying landscape architecture – working in the territory between objects and architecture.)

- Heine Kjærgaard Klausen (graduate of Det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi in 2006 – sculpture, collage, and sculptural performance.)

- Jens Axel Beck (graduate of Det Fynske Kunstakademi and Det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi in 2008 – utilizes mediums determined by the works.)

- Marie Rosenkilde Lindberg (graduate of the Art Akademy in Gothenburg in 2008 – multifarious media.)
