Democracy again

Beautiful May has arrived and a new (old) exhibition will open, namely our first Democracy-installation, I et demokrati findes der ikke plads for idioter (In a democracy there is no place for idiots). This time the installation will be in Danish and take a look at Danish politics due to the upcoming elections in Denmark.

The exhibition will open on the 9th of May as a part of the festival Talk Town, which main purpose is to create a platform for democratic debate about equality, gender and feminism.

I et demokrati findes der ikke plads for idioter wants to bring awareness to how words are being used in politics, and how important it is to actively take a stance. With the installation questions such as; What are the choices of the voters based on? and What will happen if the words of the politicians is taken out of their context and put into a new? Inspired Ludwig Wittgenstein‘s thoughts regarding ‘language-game‘ and the definition of ‘an idiot’ as a person who does not participate in the democratic process, words will be ‘activated’ the interactive installation.

OBSESSION

 

OBSESSION

Sometimes things that did not happen – feelings that was hurt, mental-bondage not to be released by anyone other than yourself, trap your thought. 

Sometimes conventions, socially defined limitations, and the dreams that got crushed by lack of love, illness, desires not allowed, or your own lack of confidence keep you in a gridlock. 

To be tied up is physical thing, but to be constrained in your actions and freedom is of psychological origin.  

 

OBSESSION is an interactive installation consisting of large plotter printed photographs, sound and light. The installation is produced by the duo in Cat Eyed People, MizzIsak and Langemand. 

The exhibition opens 26th of January 5 pm at Cat Eyed People’s Playground.
