EN-RUM

 

2007

 

Creating the overall spatial concept and exhibiting works at staged exhibition, EN-RUM, at Galleri Rebecca Kormind.

 

The exhibition was a collaboration between photographer Signe Roderik, painter Duncan Paré and conceptual artist Nana Francisca Schottländer resulting in an exhibition investigating the necessity for solitude through painting, installation works and photography. Each visitor stayed on his or her own in the exhibition, only accompanied by classical music and the works present in the rooms.

 

Loneliness has a negative ring. But loneliness does not have to be sad and hopeless. It's nice to be with people - to be confirmed and inspired - but I regularly have to be alone, to gather myself - find out what I basically feel and think. We are constantly being bombarded with information and opinions, and it can be confusing. One must have time to think things through in private. To tune in to oneself - and form one’s own opinion.

Signe Roderik: "Togetherness can be a filter you put up, because you don’t dare to meet yourself. With this exhibition we wanted to legitimise pulling the social plug."
