Sophie Dupont, Karin Kurzmeyer, Sofie Thorsten, Theis Wendt - Group Show 13 October - 12 November 2016
The current exhibition presents three female artists and a male artist, all of whom deal with "space" in their particular way. They have in common that they explore possibilities to expand their art work into the third dimension and thus achieve additional consideration within the space.
Sophie Dupont embraces space with her body and performing gestures. Sofie Thorsen's paintings do not end at the edge of the canvas but continue on the wall. Karin Kurzmeyer forces the audience to move around a given path by deliberately placing her sculptures in the art space. Theis Wendt's works are not simply reflections - they appear to turn the space surrounding us inside out. "We Always Carry Our Body" is the most recent work of the Danish performance artist Sophie Dupont (*1975). In this work, Dupont carries body parts made of brass on a stand above the head. The stand, comparable to a skeleton, holds the hanging parts together like a Mobile/puzzle. Her body is covered by a skin-tight black-pink costume, likewise depicting outlines of her internal organs and body parts.
