Pressemeddelelse, maj 2019

Vi er stolte over at kunne invitere til FUGUE, en udstilling af Studio ThinkingHand, som eksperimenterer med et udvidet subjektivitetsbegreb i en undersøgelse af det posthumanistiske projekt. I et forsøg på at navigere i grønseområderne mellem eksistenser, udstiller Studio ThinkingHand en række nye værker, der forbinder biologiske, industrielle og teknologiske elementer i en udstilling af levende arter, skulpturer, video, lyd og performances.

Til ferniseringen bliver udstillingen bragt til live af performancegruppen Nuleinn med værket make kin not babies, performancekunstner My Djørup som The H Y B R I D 0.7, og moderne danser My Nilsson i samarbejde med VO/FT i en eukaryotisk undersøgelse af kroppen. Udstillingen vil i samspil med disse særligt tilrettelagte performances udfolde sig i en fuga-lignende komposition af modsætninger og fragmenter, der står alene, og dog stadig i dialog med hinanden.

Iværksat af en stigende bevågenhed på menneskets rolle som art mellem arter, og konsekvenserne af vores fremskredne samfund, hvor globaliseret kommercialisering af alt andet end mennesket, har gjort vores økosystem til et planetarisk produktionsapparat, peger udstillingen FUGUE mod de æstetiske og poetiske som indfaldsvinkel til det posthumane projekt. En tankegang hvor den traditionelle eurocentriske humanisme og det moderne kapitalorienterede produktionsmodus udfordres at et endnu uudforsket behov for et værdisæt som decentraliserer menneskets position, samt vitaliserer et nærværende forhold til de naturlige vilkår der findes i mellem liv og materie, af forskellig karakter.

...I stedet for blot at være genstand for vores opråb – hvordan udbreder vi så bevidstheden om alle væseners livlige aktivitet, og forholder os åbent til at lytte simultant til naturen og teknologiens selvorganiserende handlekraft?

Studio ThinkingHand består af Rhoda Ting (f. 1985, AUS) og Mikkel Dahlin Bojesen (f. 1988, DK). De eksperimenterer med værensbegreber og samskabelsesprocesser som i tværsnittet mellem kunst og videnskab peger bekræftende imod en fremtid af åbne fortællinger og flerstemmige sammensætninger – som en håndgribelig og praktisk fremtidsforskning der går ud over geopolitiske og bioindividuelle grænser, og bliver et vidnesbyrd om de bevægelser der konstant sker på den anden side af den menneskelige horisont. Med temaer inden for erkendelsesteoretisk æstetik, filosofi, partikelfysik, biologi og poesi og fiktion arbejder de på at revidere og udvide det menneskelige blik, og undersøger en sammenhængende planetarisk tilblivelse på tværs af tid, rum, arter og skala.

Kvit Galleri er etableret af de to kunstnere Ingjerd Heggem Nergaard og Astri Styrkestad Haukaas, der deler ønsket om at skabe et vindue til udstilling af ung dansk og international samtidskunst. Lokalerne fungerer som dynamiske rum der ikke er limiteret af konventionelle grænser mellem hver enkelt kunstart, og har huset visuel kunst, performance, musik og litteratur. Stifterne er aktive kunstnere, drevne af en ambition om at eksponere dem alle og dermed udforske de mange synergier der kan opstå imellem dem.

Fernisering: D. 24. maj, kl. 17-22.
Udstillingsperiode: D. 24. maj - 2. juni.
Åbningstider: Kl. 12-18.

Studio ThinkingHand “FUGUE“
Exhibition text

Rather than being the object of our protest, how do we listen loudly to the fugue of many voices acting with autopoietic agency and open ourselves to the alterity of counterpoints, fragmented flows and dialogues of the ‘Not one’?

As you pass away – in-between the certainties
where death and eternity finally unmasks
and reveals themselves as the same fruiting body.
Hard edges erode.
What otherwise might remain apart, are dissolved, softened and united.
You become the archive, the stage, the monument,
The everdrifting body of water
Where all waters have flowed into the vast reservoir of life.
The great receptacle of the landscape
of repeated meetings.

Living in simultaneous eras of the end of the fourth industrial revolution and the sixth mass extinction, brings about a change of scale in our thinking, where Humanist understandings of ‘Human’ and advanced capitalistic strivings no longer suffice. We have become larger than a biological entity and now wield a geological force. A Posthuman gaze expands the notion of subjectivity and calls for self reflexivity on the part of the subjects who occupy the former humanist centre. Decentralising the human to a species amongst species and breaking down the border zones of the human-nature and life-death continuums, in proposing an enlarged sense of inter and intra-connection with non-human others and an open curiosity for disharmony, rediscovers Humanist cracks in an imaginative gaze as sites for new explorations and production of meanings - A journey of multiple possible pasts and futures, entangled in an unpredictable and open ended mosaic of spatial rhythms and temporal arcs.

How do we play in this planetary Fugue? When do we listen? When do we sing?  Who and What am I now intra-acting and entangling with in a polyphony of new configurations, new subjectivities, new possibilities? Bringing together the biological, industrial and technological, Studio ThinkingHand’s exhibition ‘FUGUE’ explores a journey beyond the cracks of Humanism into an embodiment and application of a posthuman gaze towards possible affirmative futures. In practising observing, relating and entangling across perspectives, scales, time, species and elements the artist’s processes embrace a co-creation of intra-actions and entanglements outside of human control.
