We are in the final week of "Sleeper", a dialogue exhibition by Andreas Albrectsen and Otavio Schipper.
"(...) As the title emphasizes it is precisely the railroad and the lines of the landscape that are important common denominators in this exhibition, with the two artists working in their own expression and media.
The artists do not only have a common cultural point of view (Schipper is Brazilian with European roots and Albrectsen is half Danish, half Brazilian) but also a common artistic strategy which has made it possible to create an exhibition where the individual works interact with each other in a dizzying game of association playing with the concepts of history, perspective, perception, tracks, memory, constants, infrastructure, communication, modernity, rationality and subjectivity. Both artists work with the changes of meaning occurring when found objects are isolated, processed and inserted into new temporal and spatial contexts.(...) "
Do come by and see this extraordinary exhibition, it runs through Saturday October 26!
A big thank you to the Danish Arts Foundation for supporting research trip and shipping for this exhibition 🙏
