Performance at The National Gallery of Denmark Copenhagen

Date: 24. 25, 27, 28 jan. 2018

 Experience art, performance and dance meet and merge in the new performance installation: National Exhibition. The installation focus on mono-culture, national pride and national branding and is created by design duo KASPERSOPHIE in collaboration with choreographer Martin Forsberg.

Lets dig into the national consciousness. Lets release the skeletons from the cupboard and let them dance on what we hold sacred in search for where it actually hurts.

Performed by six dancers on selected dates in late January, National Exhibition merges performance, installation and dance. The work is performed against a backdrop of the nations art and cultural history in the form of SMK’s collection and with it KASPERSOPHIE takes an investigative view on mono-culture, national pride and national branding.

It will shed new light on gems from the Golden Age of Danish art and draws inspiration from the architectural contrasts in the historicist and modernist elements of the present-day museum building.
