14.JUNI – 12. AUGUST
During the latest years, the Danish sculptor Kristian Sverdrup has volunteered in various research projects with the purpose of creating a line of sculptures, reliefs and paintings. The numerous microcopies, electro-physical measurements, biopsies as well as ultra sounds and 3D scans that his body was subjected to becomes the base of his works.
For our art satellite S1 at Aalborg railway station, Kristian Sverdrup has created the new work “Brain Cloud”, which is a self-portrait shaped by data from a brain scan. The work is produced in plates of transparent neon acrylic, and it is carefully created to fit four cubic meters, which is size of the glass case located in the middle of Aalborg’s public railway station. Holes drilled into the acrylic plates shape the motif, which together create an abstract portrait.
The exhibit is supported by the Elsass Foundation
