being human being

24. October 2014 to 25. January 2015

What is the original man? What is the story about the original person? And where do we actually come from?

Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussens’ exhibition being human being is about the concept of the "original" human. The exhibition examines the way we search for, see and display our existence’s origin and how this influences the way we understand ourselves today.

The exhibition is based in geology studies of the Earth's structure and evolution, as we (perhaps) can find some of the answers to the evolution of life her. Even though geology is the natural starting point to the question on the original, geology cannot provide definitive answers to all questions and will there serve only as a basis for the artistic interpretations of origin and function; of the purpose of being.

In Nikolaj Kunsthal Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen will mainly focus on her trip to Ethiopia, where traces of the human roots have been found. It is said to be here that the first humans, as we know ourselves, have taken the first step away from a life as great apes into the life of Homo Erectus. 

The exhibition consists of performative, sculptural, illustrative and auditory elements, which is partially an elaboration of Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen's former solo exhibition at Horsens Art Museum earlier this year.


From the press



"being human being is not really an exhibition, nor is it a performance. It's something in between. What we explore is an open studio or a program of live art in which we witness artistic research and the formation of artworks."
