Deconstruction of Already Existing Knowledge of Blindness

Kristina Steinbock

05.05.2018 - 24.06.2018
FACEBOOKEVENT


PRESSEMEDDELELSE

Welcome to the opening of Kristina Steinbock's Deconstruction of Already Existing Knowledge of Blindness Friday May 4th from 4 p.m to 6 p.m at Galleri Image, Vestergade 29.

For the opening there will be a performance 'Blind idioms' by Søren Høgh, who discusses proverbs and metaphors of blindness from the Bible, which often connects sight with light and wisdom and blindness with darkness and stupidity.

In the exhibition Deconstruction of Already Existing Knowledge of Blindness, the Danish artist Kristina Steinbock investigates the conception of blindness through cinematic, tactile, photographic, auditive and performative works. The viewer and the blind are bodily present in the world in two different ways. Kristina Steinbock collaborates with blind people to provide insight into a world they are otherwise detached from and try to create openings between the two worlds and break down prejudices. 

The exhibition is created specifically for Galleri Image and is based on several years of study of a world of blindness, where Steinbock tries to establish overlapping areas between theatricality and identity, individual and category, and between documentation and fiction. 

In the videoinstallation The space before sleep, Steinbock follows three blind people and discusses three themes that make up their minds: sexuality and blindness, faith and blindness, and motherhood and blindness. The work is filmically composed of still images and tied together with a voiceover based on the three themes. 

In the series Untitled Photogravures, precious-print technical imprint of various moods are put into play with text through serious themes that all affect humans and the resulting blindness. 

For the opening there will be a performance Blind idioms by Søren Høgh, who discusses proverbs and metaphors of blindness from the Bible, which often connects sight with light and wisdom and blindness with darkness and stupidity.

Steinbock is born in 1974, she lives and works in Copenhagen and has graduated from Glasgow School of Art and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. She works primarily with video and photography and has exhibited in Denmark and several other European countries and, among other things, won the FOKUS video art award in 2013.
