Currents and Structures / Rotunda III – Johansen Skovsted Arkitekter & Steffen Levring – Exhibition opening and book launch Friday the 14th of August @ 16-20.
Johansen Skovsted Arkitekter have worked with artist Steffen Levring to revisit two of the studio’s projects. Both the pump stations along Skjern River and the birdwatch tower at Tipperne are the focal points in the exhibition and in the book Rotunda III – Johansen Skovsted Arkitekter which will be launched on the day.
For the exhibition Steffen Levring has made a site-specific work based on the inherent sounds in the two built projects. Levring has recorded at the venues in West Jutland with the help of contact microphones and various recording devices. In the work of the exhibition, the sounds are played using contact speakers. In this way, the sound work evokes otherwise difficult-to-access dimensions of the two projects, and at the same time uses the exhibition space with its windows, floor and ceiling as a membrane for the transmitted frequencies. In the exhibition, the sound work is in dialogue with detailed 1:10 and 1:20 models.
The exhibition is kindly supported by Statens Kunstfond
