VERSUS  'TALISMAN – magic object'

 MG 2015

The artist group VERSUS challenges the idea of the talisman and presents it to us in a contemporary artistic and ceramic context. Hereby they make a topic of belief and superstition in a modern, rational world where, after all, faith might not be that absent. With their installation ‘TALISMAN – Magical Objects’ VERSUS invites us to explore, to wonder and maybe to find just the one talisman representing your actual needs. The strength of the bear, the inciting beat of life, ancient wisdom or perhaps the force to resist?

VERSUS: Ane Fabricius Christiansen / Camille Rishøj Nielsen / Lea Mi Engholm / Mariko Wada / Sissel Wathne

The Tactile explores the use of haptic and tactile materials; materials that have a special sensory appeal. The artworks in this exhibition speak to the audience’s senses through a great tactility; the visual sense activates the other senses so that you can almost feel the different textures, surfaces and spacialities.

Through a series of works, all characterized by a high degree of tactility, the exhibition investigates how thecontemporary art scene uses and experiments with materials and thereby opens up a unique experience andnewfound insights. The pieces rethink the materiality of art in a particularly sensory way to activate the body andsenses of the viewer.
