About chart design
Inaugurated in 2016, CHART DESIGN will this year present a curated programme entitled WHAT IT IS, WHEN IT IS NOT, which will include a series of talks, performative lectures and public space projects focusing on the ambiguity of design.
WHAT IT IS, WHEN IT IS NOT acts as a prelude to the expansion of CHART DESIGN in 2018 into an increasingly adventurous fair, exhibition and communication platform hosted in a unique off-site location.
CHART is pleased to announce that Nanna Balslev Strøjer has joined the team as director for CHART DESIGN.

Norwegian ceramicist Lillian Tørlen is interested in how people experience their immediate surroundings and uses sculpture and installation to invite the viewer to re-evaluate spaces and materials in form and function. Her site-specific project Resonance is a sprawling installation comprising hundreds of porcelain handkerchiefs scattered by the wind and caught in cracks of brick walls, lamp posts and balconies, activating the route between Kunsthal Charlottenborg and Copenhagen Contemporary.
Swedish performance duo Goldin+Senneby is a framework for collaboration set up by artists Simon Goldin and Jakob Senneby exploring juridical, financial and spatial constructs through notions of the performative and the virtual.
With the performance ACID MONEY, Goldin+Senneby will engage visitors in a performative lecture exploring the history of “conspiracy magic” together with magician Malin Nilsson and sociologist Théo Bourgeon. The audience is invited to join a trip from cold war brainwashing techniques to contemporary finance magic. This event offers a special opportunity to bring some magic home with you.
Danish artist Hanne G’s installation, The Duet, explores the sculptural and aesthetic potential of textile in a frozen form combined with a musical composition created by repetitive, random patterns. This audio element is created in a collaboration with composer and producer Jesper Ranum. The interactive audiovisual installation engages its audience directly using built-in sensors to detect movement and activate an audio element, producing a song as people approach, move away from and walk around the sculptures.
