Servitudes

 

Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Nyhavn 2, 1051 København

A video installation by the Danish artist Jesper Just.

Ramps and walkways in scaffold lead through the galleries past a set of 8 films with three protagonists. The ramps subvert the formal space of the gallery, rising high enough to force visitors to stoop to duck underneath door lintels and the route cuts backwards and forwards and doubles under walkways so groups watching the individual films also become part of the exhibition as you see them from different angles or different levels.
