Sigurður Guðjónsson at Regelblau 411

 

Updated: postponed, new date TBA.

Sigurður Guðjónsson opens a new exhibition at Regelblau 411 in Denmark on 15.01.2021.

The exhibition presents a journey into the core of technology and its relics.

Through seven video installations, Guðjónsson intricately reflects on devices and machines that have been overtaken by current technological developments and gradually become memories of our collective past.

In these works, time passes slowly. Soft and resounding images reveal movements and changes in structure, rendering commonly hidden sequences of rhythm and reflection into visible form.

On the threshold of recognisable everyday mechanisation and abstract imagery, Guðjónsson’s works focus on electronic components that have become detached from ordinary life, as they become reawakened and appear in a new and poetic light.

Set within the bunkers of Regelbau 411, the former workings of particular technological activities are brought to life, although completely devoid of their original functions and value. Rather than being perceived as general-purpose objects, they are extraordinarily transformed into a revered experience, laced with unseen powers and reminders of antiquity.

The exhibition opens Friday 15 January 2021 at 17.00. Open Daily from 10.00 to 17.00.
Admission to Regelbau 411 is free.

The exhibition LIGHTROOM is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, the foundation Knud Højgaards Fond, Nordic Culture Fund, Færchfonden, the Obel Family Foundation and Struer – City of Sound. The exhibition is curated by Matilde Best and Simon Thykjær.
