How do artists of different generations and nationalities process outside influences and inner experience? What significance do 'images' of culture and nature have on their work? INSIDE OUT presents new works by Tjorg Douglas Beer, Jesper Christiansen, Kristian Devantier, Leonard Forslund, Günther Förg, Andreas Golder, Dan Graham, Shara Hughes, Eske Kath, Astrid Kruse Jensen, Moshekwa Langa, Mustafa Maluka, Claudette Schreuders, Lucy Teasdale, Elisabeth Toubro, Lars Tygesen and Kathrine Ærtebjerg that explore these questions. The works in the exhibition examine the correlation between interior and exterior and the interrelation between the terms nature and culture. The artists take different conceptual or narrative approaches in various media, photography, installation, painting and sculpture.

 

In his work, Jesper Christiansen links personal reminiscence with cultural memory. The starting points for him are special places, maps, floor plans, that he transforms and restructures on the canvas through his own memory. Whereas Tjorg Douglas Beer questions cultural identities in his installation works, Mustafa Maluka’s work cites these with references to popular culture in a large-format portrait. In her photographs, Astrid Kruse Jensen creates scenes that cross between reality and fiction. Nature is presented as a reflection of subjective perception. Eske Kath’s works depict the frailness of our 'cultivated' nature by referring to natural catastrophes and consumption of natural resources. In an imaginary parallel universe, the works of Kathrine Ærtebjerg merge the fantastic with the spiritual.
