Arrival 2020 is the perfect title for this year’s first exhibition. It features work by three artists who graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2019. Mia Line, Emilie Bausager and Gilbert Gordon are now re-installing their degree projects in Augustiana’s opulent rooms.
The exhibition in the White Mansion is a condensed version of some of the themes with which today’s artists are so preoccupied. Mia Line’s disturbingly weird, human-scale birds portray the relationship between man and nature. Emilie Bausager’s synthetic stone walls, made of clothes, rubbish and disposable products, entails a commentary on our throwaway culture, while Gilbert Gordon’s dramatic video installation questions our perception of reality and the possibility of controlling the world around us. More about the Works.
The exhibition is subsidised by the Danish Arts Foundation
