Since his graduation from the Jutland Art Academy in 2016, Nour Fog has been concerned with the interaction between sculptural objects and sound. At Overgaden he presents three new serial installations, all integrating design, technique and sound which calls to mind a vulnerable, sensitive and sensous body.
The three installations are entitled Non Binary Objects, Siren, and Organsand are created in ceramics, plaster, papermache and sculptural clay. The sculptures vary in size and expression – one is gigantic and occupies the space with its over dimensioned bodily presence, while others show themselves as flat waves on the floor. Yet others appear as smaller families of ceramic objects. The works draw on references to human anatomical horn instruments, Venus from Willendorf, and basic shapes found in classical vases and jars.
In the sound sculpture Siren, the artist is inspired by funnel shaped amplifiers from alarm sirens and the human made yet siren-like sound from the work will play periodically. From Organs a thin smoke will slowly leak out into the exhibition space and cover it in a subtle foggy atmosphere.
With Body Objects Nour Fog creates a sensous and vibrating space that emphasizes the body as something sensual, alluring and yearning in nature.
Nour Fog (b. 1981) holds a MFA from The Jutland Art Academy from 2016. Since his graduation he has exhibited at Sydhavn Station and Galleri Image as well as performed widely with his sound project Duo Demona.
Opening reception Friday June 14, 5-8 pm
