An exhibition by Johna Hansen
25th September – 23rd October 2015
Exhibition opening Friday 25th September @ 16.00
The exhibition HJEM [home] begins with the consideration that places as well as objects hold traces of their inhabitants or owners. That codes can be found in the way things are used, constructed or structured around, which tell stories that reach beyond their functionality. If the inhabitant/owner is also the maker of the place/object, these two entities can coalesce. In this crossover, one can discover more than that which is immediately apparent.
Together we move through the space.
The wood follows, copies, gathers and tells the story.
I see myself in another language.
Imagine that you see that which is not there.
That we say the same.
