THE DAY LASTS FOREVER
Time is at the center of the exhibition. The artist group DeV+ shows a number of innovative works, exploring what time means to us. It is time as absolute and linear, time as sensed, time as timeless… The works are presented as one unified installation of photography, film, sculpture, drawing, etc.
Artists: Sofie Hertz (DK), Susanne Schmidt-Nielsen (DK), Kristina Kvalvik (N), Kirsten Schauser (DK), Michala Norup (DK) and Kristine Djurhuus (DK). Read more

NATURAL REBEL: Tamara Delaval and Charlotte Petersen

This solo exhibition Waterbody by performance- and visual artist Nana Francisca Schottländer examines exchanges between man and other-than-human, embodied in bodily encounters with Silkeborg's landscapes and the beings and phenomena that inhabit them. The works revolve around intimacy across species and ways of being - bordering on the erotic. Photo, video and sculptural objects are collected in a spatial installation, which also specifically engages the visitors. Alongside the exhibition there is a program of talks, performances and rituals. Read more

FOREST DOCUMENTS is a collection of works that explore what a forest is. The Amazon Forest mirrors itself in water and invites us into an animated landscape that opens the window to another cosmology and way of understanding and being in the forest. With a combination of video works, photo installation, sound images and social interactive art, the viewer encounters not a universe, but a plurality of different forests. The project is being carried out by anthropologist Stine Krøijer and photographer Mike Kollöffel in collaboration with visual artist Berit Nørgaard and Jonas Fritsch, AIR Lab at ITU. Read more

ROOT IN THE NORDIC REGION
An exhibition that looks outward and upward, namely towards the Nordic Region and the Nordic. The artists have noted a common root in and interest in das Unheimliche, for the Nordic melancholy, for the ambivalence in the encounter between nature and culture, and for the human mysterious identity. Nature is (often) viewed far away from political activities and the view revolves around the energies found in peripheral areas, secret gardens - a terrain vague on the edge of nature and culture. Graphics will be the exhibition bearing media. Danish artists: Vibe Bredahl, Malene Hartmann, Svend-Allan Sørensen, Gitte Bach and Knud Odde. Guests: Elina Länsman (FI), Anker Mortensen (FO) and Kent Iwemyr (S).

Morten Juvet's (N) project COVER consists of 45 paintings, all in the same square format - as an record cover. Motivationally, the rabbit constitutes the common, ambiguous metaphor, and all paintings refer to the texts of rock music, where this particular vulnerable, but free animal recur. The artist combines visual parts from the original record covers with his own rabbit language. The project points to a connection across music genres. Read more
