Solo exhibition

ELUSIVE EXPRESS is an exhibition with works developed site-specifically in relation to the landscape of Refshaleøen in Copenhagen


During weekly stays in a deserted urban landscape on Refshaleøen in Copenhagen, I have in the past year developed a series of operational artifacts and sensory devices to associate myself with a strong inherent force emanating from this landscape. The environment and the physical conditions that form the basis of the nature of this landscape are best described as extremely contrasting. It is in the landscape’s complex relationship between silence and grandeur, brutality, and fragility that something arouses my curiosity and makes me return so often. Especially in the evening, I visit the area, walking, to best connect to the intimate space that the landscape (despite its vast extent) possesses. In the slow and vulnerable state of transformation of the landscape, I sense that an inner life of the landscape has opened for interaction. In the presence of this unknown dimension, I experiment with improvised and intuitive exercises for a better understanding of the landscape in relation to my own and others’ presence. I search the area for other activity and rematerialize the traces I find through physical sculpting. It is a form of archaeology in reverse, where information is obtained in the evolution of a found object rather than in the analysis of a found object.

Ladder Space is an eclectic exhibition space that encapsulates what surrounds it. In a stable building at Halmtorvet – which also functions as a studio collective – exhibitions and performances manifest, in addition to activities of more processual, temporary, and communal character.

The exhibition space strives to resemble how we encounter the world today, as leaping and association-driven, where we scroll through a reality that is intertwined, paradoxical and interchangeable. Instead of curating the exhibitions based on a single idea or a set frame of references or preferences, we examine the chaotic and paradoxical concept of housing many different practices under one roof and let themes and associations flow freely and weave in and out of the different activities. The eclectic becomes a tool to generate new meanings, understandings and coherence and use this openness towards the chaotic as a method to create new forms of dialogue and add nuance and complexity to the activities and conversations that take place in Ladder Space.
