Dänische Botschaft in Deutschland:

 

"Künstlerisches Licht in dunklen Tagen: Die Künstlerin Birgit Kjærsgaard bespielt eine Vitrine im U-Bahnhof Kleistpark in Berlin-Schöneberg mit einer poetischen 3D-Reflexion über Trauerrituale und Vorstellungen von Tod.

Die Arbeit hat die Künstlerin unter anderem zu einem Pilgrimsort nach Japan geführt.

„Mountain of Sadness“, so der Werktitel – ist von der Landschaft am Berg inspiriert und zeigt ein flimmerndes Bild des möglichen Tores zur Unterwelt.

Das Werk ist Teil der Serie „A Femmes City“ kuratiert von Isolde Nagel, die mit A Trans ein Galerieprojekt ohne festen Ort betreibt."

デンマークのアーティスト・建築家BirgitKjærsgaardは、アジアの文化の記号体系とメタファーについて、長年にわたり調査しています。 Verdensrum IV,Japan:RyōkaiResistは、日本の瞑想儀式と自然崇拝の概念に基づいたユニークな3Dインスタレーションです。アジアの精神的な教えと哲学を、表現力豊かな舞踏パフォーマンス、映像、サウンド、現代的な3D技術を用いて融合させます。 すべての文化には日常の経験や存在だけでなく神話や歴史にも関係する独自の時間感覚があります。 このインスタレーションは、思考過程に焦点を当てた東洋の伝統と哲学を、芸術的に解釈しています。 舞踏の場合、思考と運動は同じ平面に位置し、精神と肉体は調和しています。 この作品では、現代のコンテクストにおいて、高野山の修験者によって今も伝えられる古代の瞑想儀式と舞踏の力を結合させます。 意識の探検家として、鑑賞者は心と宇宙の景観を巡る旅に参加します。 ギャラリー白線 東京都杉並区阿佐谷南1-36-14 1F info@hakusen.jp
