Join the artists Janne Schäfer and Kristine Agergaard (J&K) for a time-travel session within their installation, The space consists of a circle that travels in time. Taking the form of a guided meditation, the focus of the mental journey will be to examine the role of art in the future.
J&K have been using time traveling as an on-going form of research that allows them to explore sites, history and time in non-linear and visionary ways. During this event, the artists share their method and guide the audience on a short time travel session 50 years into the future. Afterwards, there will be time for discussion and to share one’s experiences.
Janne Schäfer (Germany) and Kristine Agergaard (Denmark) are an artist duo that have been working together under the name J&K since 1999.
J&K have exhibited extensively in art institutions and public spaces in Europe, notably in Denmark and Germany, with solo presentations in selected prestigious museums, such as: National Gallery of Denmark, Copenhagen; Pergamonmuseum, Berlin; KUNSTEN Museum of Modern Art, Aalborg, and Overgaden Institute for Contemporary Art, Copenhagen. This will be their first solo exhibition in the UK.
This project is commissioned to celebrate the 50th anniversary of SPACE and is generously supported by The Danish Arts Foundation and the Danish Embassy.
