Talking GENDERS Senior Exhibition / Landscapes

31. August - 25. September

 

about the exhibition

The Talking GENDERS Senior Exhibition showcases a brand new seven screen video installation titled “Landscapes” installed in the beautiful view room at Dokk1.

Landscapes is a contemporary video art installation that resembles an ancient megalithic monument.  Seven large video monoliths stand in a circular formation. Spectators are invited to stand in the middle of the installation and witness a visual poetry that combines moving images and surrounding soundscape. 

A collection of elderly bodies become visible on the seven screens and become an ambiguous panoramic landscape. The peripheries of the seven individuals become silhouettes that mirror hills, mountains, deserts and an overall vacant environment that pulsates’ with breath.   

Gradually identities are revealed as the seven monoliths display seven diverse moving portraits.  

Landscapes’ redesigns the way we view and experience aging bodies and identities today. The installation features seven different LGBTQIA+ seniors from around Europe and celebrates their bodies and portraits in the form of a public artwork. 

The installation offers maximum visibility for the LGBTQIA+ senior community, who are often under-represented in our social climate.
