The Potential of Life (in art) | Artist talk with Troels Carlsen | October 22

FRIDAY OCTOBER 22, 2021 | 4-5 PM

An artist talk with Troels Carlsen, moderated by Amanda Færk, revolving around his current exhibition Bloomerang, and the potential of life in art and in Carlsen’s practice more particularly.

Over the past two decades, Carlsen has developed a painting practice, in which nineteenth-century anatomical drawings are transferred into the world of his painting, resulting in visceral assemblages of hybrid figures. With a vision to “illuminate the potential of life”, Carlsen urges us to revisit the contested concepts of man and animal, nature and culture, past and present, and macro and micro cultures. Carlsen’s archival impulses spring from a nearly forensic interest in how images are made, and how our understanding of the world is constituted by images in a symbolic as well as a literal, bodily sense.

Entrance is free. Everyone is welcome.
Cold drinks provided by Tuborg and Høtoft.
