Aerial ViewLETH & GORI has developed an exhibition project titled Devils Tower. Devils tower is monolithic volcanic mountain located in Wyoming. Devils Tower is known from the Steven Spielberg film Close encounters of the Third Kind where it facilitates the meeting between human kind and the strangers from outer space.
LETH & GORI’s re-enacts Devils Tower and places it in an urban context on Kgs Nytorv [Kings Square] in Copenhagen. The tower is filled with programmes and spaces that represents everything that is ‘strange’ to the city. Programmes and people that are normally hidden away like prisons, refugee camps, social housing and shelters for the homeless. Just like Close encounters of the Third Kind the project creates a meeting between normality and everything that is strange or foreign.
