SPROG ǀ LANGUAGE
18 January - 22 March 2020
With the current exhibition, the present members of the artists' association Silkaden create a unified manifestation of the strength and special character of the imagery. The exhibition is a reminder of the value and ability of visual language to communicate.
As an international guest and representative of a performative language, the group and the Art Center Silkeborg Bad have, in collaboration, invited the world-renowned Dutch choreographer Jiři Kylián. He himself has suggested showing documentation for a number of his works on display in the exhibition.
The artists of Silkaden use many different forms of expression. The audience will thus see painting, mixing form, weaving, sculpture, photography, ceramics, drawing and installation.
The participating artists are: Leif Dræby, Lars Bay, Peter Birk, Karen Birch Bunten, Søren Bredahl, Charlotte Overgaard Christensen, Doris Bundgaard Hansen, Birte Vedel Howard, Randi Kornerup-Bang, Nurith Miryam Lumer-Klabbers, Lisbeth Poulsen, Flemming Rask, Poul Erik Schröder, Bodil Lisbeth Thomsen and Laila Rask Pedersen.
