TRANSMISSION FROM DARK SPACES
SEPTEMBER 08 - OCTOBER 28 2018
NYNNE LIVBJERG & PERNILLE PRIERGAARD WORSØE
Nynne Livbjerg and Pernille Priergaard Worsøe both graduated from The Royal Academy of Arts in the mid 90’s, and are both recipients of the tri-annual working grant and much coveted awards from the Danish Art Foundation. The two highly talented artists, who to some extent disappeared from the Danish art scene for several years, aim to create a thought provoking exhibition, addressing the fact that Kunsthal NORD used to be a transformer station, in which the black coal was transformed into white, electric light.
The title of the exhibition is ‘Transmission from Dark Spaces’ and Nynne Livbjerg and Pernille Priergaard Worsøe intend to let darkness and light meet in a place of revelation of sorts, pointing towards the intrinsic duality of all things. The overall concept is rooted in well known ambiguities and contrasts such as beauty and demons, society and nature, dream and reality; all nearly inevitable phenomena, which are part of our shared existence.
Nynne Livbjerg (1967) graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1994. Her art has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, and she has done solo exhibitions at Tranen, Overgaden and Huset i Asnæs, among others.
