CHART EMERGING: I AM OUR COMMON PRONOUN

Saturday september 2 12:00-18:00​ FESTSALEN, DEN GULE GÅRD, BILLEDHUGGERSKOLEN

I AM OUR COMMON PRONOUN takes its title from I Civil (2012), a book by the Danish writer and artist Amalie Smith (b. 1985), which considers the body as a porous container of shards that connect and separate us from the world and each other. This exhibition shares Smith’s exploration of the self in contemporary life: how it is constituted through language — and by extension all modes of representation — and how, therefore, it can also be expanded or broken down in an effort to express identification, empathy, love, and belonging.

CHART EMERGING is supported by Aage og Johanne Louis-Hansens Fond, A.P. Møller og Hustru Chastine Mc-Kinney Møllers Fond, The Augustinus Foundation, Finlands kulturinstitut i Danmark, Frame Finland, The Nordic Council of Ministers, The Nordic Culture Fund, Norwegian Embassy in Copenhagen, The Obel Family Foundation, Office of Contemporary Art Norway and SALTS Basel.
