In Older Kingdoms & Contraction

Exhibiting from May 4th - 26th

Open: Thursday, Friday and Saturday 12.00 – 5.00 pm.

The Copenhagen-based gallery "68 Square Meters" is exhibiting the latest multimedia installation "In Older Kingdoms". IOK is a collaboration project between Martin Thaulow and the composer Rudi Arpahoe.

The installation combines video, audio and the web, it features 5 video layers which are mapped and projected in the exhibition space, and auditive landscapes which are triggered by movement in the space. Real time video from the exhibition space becomes part of the 5 projected video layers, which are merged into one, and together with the audio broadcast on a Livestream channel on the internet. In Older Kingdoms is thus created live by you in the gallery, and also allows you to view its constantly changing forms from cyberspace. It deals with time, decay and the parallel universes we all live in and interact with.

Contraction

Last year the multimedia installation "Contraction" was exhibited at Grønbechs Gård (Bornholm, Denmark). It will now be exhibited for the second time at 68 Square Metres along with IOK. Visitors will able to walk through 6.500 metres of gift ribbon hanging from the ceiling, which create an adventurous forest to disappear in. The installation playfully and provocatively merges fantasy and reality, working with the invisible borders. Does you dare to enter and are you allowed to touch the art?

Inside the installation a video loop is played revealing a modern ballet danced by the artist's mother. The musical composition forms the soundscape for the whole installation and the choreography refers to the different phases of life.
