Absalon Kirkeby works with themes on the opacity and complex experience of life today, offering subtle comments on contemporary society.
Organic and inorganic bodies, natural and cultural objects cross each other in a turbulent space. With engagement and precision Kirkeby balances the perfect and the corrupted.
In a time that is unfolding as ideological polarisation the series addresses a dystopian undercurrent within modernity's utopian promises. X-rays, objects turned into patterns, traces of language, luminous pinks and turquoises, doors and urban sites all create a sense and narrative of place that elucidates something revelatory.
