Press release, January 2019
We are happy to invite you to the opening of Strata. Strata presents new work by Kristine Kemp, developed for Primer and the factory space of Aquaporin. It is exhibited alongside a selection of older work and optical devices from the archive of the Technical University of Denmark.
Strata departs from an interest in the act of seeing as a process of construction, understood as an act that is always already imbued with desire. When seeing becomes manifest as technologies, technologies in turn generate new ways of seeing. Through a quasi-fictional photographic documentation of the factory, the exhibition seeks to warp the image of the site and the question of artistic agency within it. The tactics deployed are those of the kaleidoscopic, of delirium, rummaging, exhaustion and sleep.
Primer is a platform for artistic and organizational development. It is located in the headquarters of Aquaporin, a global water technology company.
Exhibition period: January 12 - April 14, 2019.
Opening: Friday, January 11, 15–20.
