In the exhibition eat & becʘ̃me, Silas Inoue displays series of sculptural works with the titles Future Friture, SymbioSoup and Infrastructure, where foodstuffs are employed to create new forms of expression; for example, yoghurt is devoured by moulds in one of his works, in another a jellyfish-like figure of sugar is immersed in frying oil. The exhibition also includes drawings which, by means of a more immediate and intuitive work method, freely imagine devouring and coming into being, seen in a utopic as well as dystopic glow.
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Reunification, the photographer Luca Berti went on a historical and artistic voyage of Southern Jutland. The results of this photographic journey are now presented in a photo-documentary exhibition in the White Mansion. The exhibition features 50 unique photographs and is part of Sønderborg’s official contribution to the anniversary of the Reunification.
Fie Norsker expresses herself with great intuition in a personal universe, where clashing figures and shapes become elements of a unified narrative. At Augustiana, Fie Norsker presents both watercolours and ceramic objects. Part of the exhibition features a series of new watercolours, based on a collection of legends and stories from Augustenborg Parish, published by the local history archive.
Cecilia Westerberg’s exhibition, Herbarium – A Conversation with Plants reflects the artist’s passion for plants, science and cultural history. The exhibition consists of an installation of colour samples extracted from the plants that Cecilia Westerberg found here, a collection of pressed plants and a number of drawings.
The internationally renowned visual artist, Mikkel Carl has created an instillation – I’ll Be Your Mirror – specially for Augustiana Art Park. As the title indicates, the work addresses the relationship between interior and exterior.
2019-2021 art programme in the park is supported by Fabrikant Mads Clausens Fond.
