Danish artist Kirstine Roepstorff (b. 1972 in Virum, lives and works in Copenhagen) is showing that darkness can also bring about a new way of looking at something that exists, and signify an exploration of the perceptible.
In reference to her large 2018 solo exhibition at Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, the museum presents a solo show that is as immersive as it is challenging, which encompasses one exhibition space on the fourth floor and all rooms on the fifth. Roepstorff invites the public down a cleverly devised path, set out as a journey through darkness, to explore a built, ostensibly barren landscape of gravel and concrete elements, within which a multitude of selected works by the artist are to be discovered, including brass mobiles, collages with geometric elements and large-format paintings where the application of paint is watery and cloudy.
