We have hand-picked three exhibitions that, all put together, showcase a spectrum of architecture, design and art. In addition, the unique displays are presented in thrilling exhibition spaces.
At the Danish Architecture Centre in Copenhagen, you can visit a home of the future, with the home constructed from fibre-reinforced composite and textile as the building materials, in the exhibition project named: Generic Living Cell. One of the aims of the project is that by working with layers of different materials, it opens up the possibility for studying and creating new spatial perceptions.
The project is being developed from 11 January to 16 March. The exhibited ‘cell’ will start out as a new construction, and will be further developed into a living space with facades and textiles creating the inner rooms and internal living space. In this way, visitors can follow the building process and experience how the construction comes together and develops.
The Generic Living Cell is the product of a collaboration between The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation, Copenhagen Technical College, Danish architectural company KHR Architects, Fiberline Composite and Copenhagen’s Carpenter Guild. The project is special since it brings together various different fields in one project, including research and education, architecture and craftsmanship, along with the expertise of the building and construction industry and the latest production of composite material.
Danish Design Now is a forthcoming exhibition to be held at the Designmuseum Danmark in Copenhagen that seeks to represent an array of contemporary Danish design, ranging from furniture design, to product design, graphic design, fashion and design in the public space. Every object in the exhibition is designed in the 21st century by the new breed of trendsetting and talented Danish designers. The exhibition also encompasses arts and crafts in the shape of ‘super objects’ in ceramics, glass and jewellery, with Danish Design Now focusing on the artistically most innovative objects in the field.
The aim of the exhibition is to give the first overview of the new Millennium on what tendencies and new trends have dominated Danish design since the design boom before the year 2000 in line with wider international development. In this way, Designmuseum Danmark aims to mirror the diversity of new Danish designers and artisans, as well as the diversity of their style tendencies and wider technological innovation. The exhibition opens on 11 March.
In Aarhus, ARoS Aarhus Art Museum exhibits the exhibition Flickers of Day and Night, which is the third exhibition in a series focusing on young Nordic artists. Taking their starting point from, in particular, Nathalie Djurberg’s intensely personal fantasies and ideas, the Swedish artistic couple Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg strive to visualise the often less-becoming aspects of the human psyche.
They achieve this in integrated installations consisting of large modelled sculptures, and through the use of video animation and suggestive music. Visual artist Nathalie Djurberg and musician Hans Berg create a space in their works for various human feelings to inhabit in a very private and symbolic manner. The exhibition is on display until 21 February.
Also, if you are planning to visit the exhibition at ARoS, be sure to go and see the rooftop installation Your Rainbow Panorama by Danish–Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, and be prepared to be thrilled by the stunning colourful views of Aarhus.
