This Will Also Change is Sophie Dupont’s first major solo presentation. The conceptual framework is the movement between the horizontal and the vertical, a classical principle of composition, which here becomes a metaphor for our outer and inner life. It is at the intersection of the two that Dupont presents a series of works that both expand upon and add new elements to her previous practice.
2017 marks the centenary of the sale of Denmark’s colony in the West Indies, which is the fulcrum of Jacob Kirkegaard and Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard’s new sound installation made specifically for Overgaden’s ground floor. Recordings from the islands are used to create imaginings of this alleged ‘Paradise Lost’: the loss of something once possessed.
Artificial Nature is the title of this year’s edition of the conference series Overgaden LECTURES, focusing on the ways art extends into the domain of nature and our relationship to nature today.
