Trine Boesen:
Hole in Space

27. August 2016 to 13. November 2016

Nikolaj Kunsthal has a long tradition of creating exhibitions of contemporary art for children, youths and the adults who accompany them.

We look forward to presenting "Hole in Space" in fall 2016, an exhibition conceived for all age groups by the Danish artist Trine Boesen. The exhibition will be a large total installation in the art centre's main gallery. 

Nikolaj Kunsthal’s new family-oriented wager is a total installation for all ages between 0-117 years. The exhibition is a space to touch, jump and run in. But watch out – you might get lost in endless sign forests, black holes, soft meteor showers and strange sounds. Hole in Space is created by Danish artist Trine Boesen.

On the 27th of August 2016 Nikolaj Kunsthal opens its doors to an exhibition created for children and adults alike. Hole in Space explores infinity and how notions of it affect us.

Hole in Space presents a wondrous and sensuous world of endless sign forests, secret nooks, crashed satellites, binoculars and kaleidoscopes. Soft meteor showers, weightless globes, strange sounds and black holes make for a space that is easy to get lost in. The exhibition sends body, senses and imagination on a fun and fanciful journey in through the hole and out into space.

Danish artist Trine Boesen has in collaboration with Nikolaj Kunsthal created a parallel reality in which time and space shift and make us lose ourselves. But it also allows us to rediscover who we are, in sensory meetings with objects, materials and phenomena of the universe. The electronic musician Bjørn Svin has composed the futuristic soundtrack of the exhibition.

Hole in Space is an extension of Hole in the Wall, which was exhibited at Brandts earlier this year.  New works and dimensions form part of the display, and it is possible to make creative projects inspired by the exhibition in a special workshop.

Hole in Space can be experienced at Nikolaj Kunsthal from 27 August to 13 November 2016. Tickets are DKK 50 for adults and DKK 25 for children. Hole in Space has been created in collaboration with Brandts.
