The form is performance and video documentation / installation.

Transition towards a new season

June 8, 2016

SPRING16

Although SPRING16 have closed and turned off long time ago (April 17), we would still like to thank Janne Kruse, Karen Gamborg Knudsen, Søren Krag and supervisor Tanja Nellemann Poulsen. The process has been very interesting towards the exhibition, and luckily we managed everything in the end. It is our hope that the audience also has felt challenged by the works
A kind of recognition it must surely be that Søren Krag two wall carpets was purchased by the City of Aarhus.
