This event has ended.

Jacob Kierkegaard documents acoustic and visual properties of carefully selected environments to create spatial installations, sound sculpture and photography. He has recorded subterranean geyser vibrations, empty rooms in Chernobyl, Arctic calving glaciers and tones generated by the human inner ear itself. The exhibition includes several projects representative of the artist’s practice:

Black Metal Square #1 (2017), a suspended one-square-meter black metal plate whose subtle natural vibrations are amplified and fed back into itself, enhancing its readymade resonance.
Ice Age (2016) - photographs of spectacular glaciers in Greenland, and Melt (2016) - a composition of field recordings of ice melting deep inside the glaciers.
Expulsion (2012) - photographs taken at a remote site where exorcism is performed by Ethiopian priests, together with a recording of the voices of people undergoing exorcism.
Hotel Chernobyl (2006) - photographs taken inside the only hotel in the radioactive Zone of Exclusion in Chernobyl, Ukraine, and Aion (2016) - an audio-visual work recorded and filmed in the Zone.
