Roaming Away on the Pillars of Consensus
Solo show by Theodor Præst Nymark Jensen, curated by Simon Ganshorn.
As I am sitting here, thinking, about the past, wondering how, and when. Where it belonged and how it was made. Mass-produced, with joy I rest my appearance on this early morning, standing straight and proud in the shower, soaked in the memory of others. The nostalgia of sorrow devours the cowards of society and meanwhile, the wild dogs run through the mist of wilderness in midtown alleys. Alleys filled with artifacts of an unspoken time in history, without ends. A never-ending story, recited through rituals by the orca of modernism. With no actual connection to the omnipresent consensus of culture, they swim through the colossal structures of meaning. The meaning, of which life is driven towards, is buffering on the wheel of eternity. New classics are constructed and ancient modernity is written. The vehicle of association moves throughout the landscape, crossing the borders and into the apartment of man. With these vessels of complexity, I compose a proposal for a renewed perception of heritage. A relic presented in contrary to its production and artificiality. The environmental influences that dissolve the reality of our nature. As the dying tree, cut off by rotors, overturns and shatters the windshield of a white automobile. They distance themselves so far from what they perceive as unpleasant and unfamiliar. Conform and bound to false symbolism of their own imagination.
Thank you to: Simon Ganshorn, Frej Volander, my family and my friends.
