CHRISTINE OVERVAD HANSEN

Traders

In her practice, Christine Overvad Hansen works with sculpture in a broad sense. Her works are often based on traditional sculptor materials and techniques, in combination with mechanical elements, performance and materials from the everyday life, such as cosmetics and housing- and clothing materials. For her exhibition at HFKD titled Traders, she has produced a number of sculptural works, all of which revolve around themes such as relationships and exchanges. With a contextual approach to the physical space and the viewer's bodily interaction with the exhibition, the works unfold together and separately, stories of both the exchange of, and (unfulfilled) pursuit of effects, information or affections.

  

SILAS INOUE

eat & becʘ̃me

Silas Inoue's practice is based on an idiosyncratic approach to nature and man, and how these concepts are inextricably linked. In his work with drawing, sculpture and installation, Inoue combines analytical world observations with intuitive and fabulous expressions. The sculptural works often contain food, and touches on themes such as evolution, future ecologies, technologies and infrastructures. In the exhibition eat & becʘ̃me, Inoue has worked with his ideas on the nutritional aspects of his practice and how consumption is related to life and evolution. With vivid molds, sugar immersed in deep-fried oils and drawings of hyper-exotic gourmet dishes, Inoue builds a sensual experience around a sort of modern-day vanity motifs that spring from thoughts of growth and decay in a globalized world.

 

oVo / BIRK BJØRLO & LEA GuLDDITTE HESTELUND

oVo

oVo is both the name of the artist duo consisting of Lea Guldditte Hestelund and Birk Bjørlo, as well as the title of this exhibition, which is the first major institutional exhibition the couple has created together. Collaboratively they have created a site-specific installation that, through several different spatial grips, encloses and affects the viewer's body. Large metal sculptures, at once bearing and connected by a natural felt fabric, extend towards the light from the high-rise windows. The whole room is bathed in pink light, and the temperature of the room is wae and dense. As a whole, the exhibition gives a feeling of being inside a super-organism, where the individual works are in mutual dependence on one another and where care is a basic condition.
