Title:
Artist talk with Birgit Johnsen & Hanne Nielsen
Artist:
Birgit Johnsen & Hanne Nielsen
In connection with Art Weekend Aarhus, you will have the opportunity to see Hanne Nielsen and Birgit Johnsen's new artworks at Aarhus University Hospital, where the artists will give an artist talk on their site-specific art pieces, commissioned by the hospital, which were revealed in February.

It is new to include media and video art in the decorative context. With the art work SNIT og FLADE / STILLEBEN gennem Z-AKSEN, Hanne Nielsen and Birgit Johnsen have been inspired by the site's architecture and function by including the hospital's own research tools, namely the CT scanner to generate images and to produce their videos.

There is a strangeness to the images generated by the CT scanner, which at a slow pace conveys a story of figurative and abstract elements by crawling through the objects. The large screens that are part of SNIT og FLADE / STILLEBEN gennem Z-AKSEN attract significant attention to themselves while the works playfully interact with the architecture. The site-specific works can be seen at long distances, up to 80 meters away. All are located in and in close proximity to the major waiting areas in the northern part of the hospital. In addition to video art, the artists have supplied films on glass and painted the walls over two floors.The Artist talk will take place in the immediate vicinity of the works. Access is free and questions are welcome. The conversation with Hanne Nielsen and Birgit Johnsen will be in English.
