TRANSITIONS EXHIBITION

solsense

TRANSITIONS is an exhibition project by ANETTE HØJLUND which takes place in LETH & GORI’s studio in Copenhagen. It unfolds as a poetic study of the phenomenon of transition. Through montages of drawing, photography, and various materials, investigations of transitions between inside and outside, between body and space, between the organic and organized, the material and the construction site are performed.
TRANSITIONS will in the first half of the period unfold as a process related project where four panels, mounted on the wall, form the background for image-formations slowly clarified to individual entities. The investigation ends after two weeks; hereafter the panels remain as paused statements for the rest of the exhibition period. During the period LETH & GORI together with ANETTE HØJLUND will host two salons with invited artists whose work in different ways enter into dialogue with the project.

TRANSITIONS relate to the concept of architecture on a metaphorical and everyday-practical way. “Architecture” is seen as an organizing factor – as the concrete walls that define the space – as the way in which we construct the world – as a materiality that is absolutely different from the body – as space creating an atmosphere. The idea of the project is that the body, space, perception and consciousness are always in states of transition, like our exchange with the image and art is.

TRANSITIONS can be seen as a thinking image-organism and a manifestation of how montages of images through the differences and similarities in a sensual way can make complex phenomena accessible for cognition.
