In a time with a great international focus on clima and space research the Art Centre Silkeborg Bad contribute with an artistic dimension. We now show a large exhibition over the theme Cosmos with 17 Foreign and Danish artists. The artists focus on existential, visual and philosophical aspects on our relationship to cosmos: The visually magnificent, the scary proportions, light and dark, chaos and order and much more. Visitors will be seeing videos on widescreens, installation, photography, holography, and other expressions of contemporary art.

Back is Forward

Connections and separations are in the foreground when sculptor Frode Steinicke (born 1953) shows sculptures, sculpture models, reliefs, watercolours and a few paintings from the past twenty years. His great effort is in the non-figurative art, and the exhibition is an investigation of what a sculpture is as a phenomena.

- Are you aware of what has created your taste?

14 young artists from Denmark and Sweden provide a debate about visual traditions in the two countries. They pose the important question, is it possible to talk about and identify national preferences in visual art? Are we aware of how our tastes have been formed through traditions and visual inheritance? Knowing the nationality of the artists and their schooling what do we expect? The visitor is introduced to the visual traditions of the two different cultures and will be able to see which positions the young artists take in relation to this.

Get high in this sensivity exhibition including workshops for children and young people. The two young artists from Perspektivbanden (the “Gang of Perspective”: Kristian Nordentoft and Magnus Damgaard) start from the grey and quiet subject world of the Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershøj.
