In her practice, Lea Guldditte Hestelund is interested in how we perceive and ascribe meaning to the body in contemporary Western society. In this solo presentation she explores the boundaries between human and non-human bodies. The exhibition will consist of an installation that sets the stage for a mysterious science fiction scenario in which different objects and sculptures address and act as bodies.
For a longer period of time, the Portuguese visual artist Duarte Filipe and the Danish digital artist Christoffer Birkkjær have explored the potentials at the intersection of classical drawing and computer visualisation. Based on this collaboration they present a new installation that invites the audience on a journey into the universe of drawing.
MASS – bloom explorations is a durational choreographic installation dealing with the issues of decay, decomposition and death.
In a plastic dome appearing like something in between a mausoleum and a greenhouse you meet the human Hilde I. Sandvold and thousands of mealworms. They live side by side in a microuniverse built exclusively of disposed white foam plastic – a material that also happens to be a nourishment that pleases the ever-hungry mealworms.
This evening, the exhibition Consumed Future Spewed Up as Present by Lea Guldditte Hestelund provides the framework for a performative sound universe created by the musician Xenia Xamanek (Equis). Xamanek is, like Hestelund, interested in a fluent concept of the body and bodies in transition. Among other things Xamanek works with the voice and explores themes such as ownership of the voice and asks if the voice is actually independent of a body and ego – and might even have a life in itself.
