THE LANDSCAPE IN-BETWEEN
Gallery Image (DK)
1 march - 7 april 2013
”Every week, one of Kopenhagen Art Institute’s writers recommends three must-sees for the weekend. This week, Niklas Langeland Pedersen recommends Anish Kapoor at ARoS, Morten Barker at Galleri Image and the music film festival at Cinemateket […] The sounds of distant, controlled explosions and birdsong form a unique and hypnotic pact in Morten Barker’s exhibition at Galleri Image. By use of photography and video installation, the exhibition documents a unique, subdued, hazy and mysterious appeal of Denmark's military shooting grounds. These areas are unchartered territory for most of us, placed somewhere in-between the image of the red stag by the forest lake in the romantic landscape paintings of the Danish Golden Age and where Lars Von Trier filmed Antichrist."
