PRESSEMEDDELELSE

Copenhagen Contemporary (CC) is an independent institution, established in 2015 with a view to creating a new, international exhibition venue in Copenhagen. To kickstart the major project CC has rented the 3,400 square-meter halls on Paper Island (Christiansholm) in Copenhagen. 

After a renovation period CC is now opening part of the exhibition space on June 30 with a warm-up opening of the German artist Carsten Nicolai's more than 30-metre-long light and audio installation unidisplay. The work consists of a long wall on which changing light patterns are projected, and where mirrors on both sides of the projection make up an endless universe. The undulating patterns affect our eyes, among other ways through optical illusions, flicker and after-images. At the same time a soundtrack that is propagated through the body by speakers supports the various visual idioms. The work thus offers both a visual and a physical experience. Outside on the quayside one can also experience works by Yoko Ono and Pettersen & Hein.

These works will also be included in CC's grand opening on August 25 along with works by the American artist Bruce Nauman and Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson.

For 18 months, from June 30, 2016 to December 31, 2017, CC will implement changing exhibitions of work by internationally recognized artists.

The vision
The vision for this one and a half year long pilot project is that CC can afterwards be established in a more permanent place in Copenhagen.

CC is to be a supplement to the existing museums and art halls—a living centre for art and people where a broad public will be able to experience large artworks with a sensory appeal by some of the most significant artists of the present day. These are works that stimulate both body and intellect, and thus involve and engage the individual visitor. 

CC wants to forge relations outside the house, for example in connection with exhibitions, festivals, performances, talks etc. and is already collaborating with external players including Copenhagen Street Food and Cph Art Week.

CC's intention is to offer major artistic experiences to all visitors and at the same time create an open, relaxed place for people of all ages with long opening hours and events, a shop and a café (in the summer both indoors and outdoors).
____

Carsten Nicolai is a German artist and musician. His more than 30-metre-long light and sound installation unidisplay is being shown as the first work in CC on Papirøen.

Carsten Nicolai is known all over the world for his minimalist and digital works – both on the international art scene with his conceptual installations and on the electronic music scene, where he has also aroused attention under the name Alva Noto with his precise, subtle sounds and visual codes. At the intersection of art, music and science, Carsten Nicolai explores the logical systems and control mechanisms that structure our world.

unidisplay is a powerful experience both visually and physically. The work consists of a long wall on which changing light patterns are projected and are reflected in mirrors on both sides of the projection to make up an endless universe. The undulating patterns affect our eyes with among other things optical illusions, flickering and after-images. At the same time the various visual impressions are grounded by a soundtrack that is propa­gated through the body via speakers placed beneath a long bench on which you can sit in the installation.

At the general level unidisplay is about the way we sense the surrounding world, and how our surroundings in turn affect us. Carsten Nicolai himself calls his practice an investigation of semiotics – of how meaning, by means of signs, is produced, conveyed, received and understood, both non-linguistically in our bodies and as a scanning of information processes in the world around us.

Carsten Nicolai (b. 1965) lives and works in Berlin. He has participated in important international exhibitions like Documenta and the Venice Biennale, and his work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions all over the world. In his music projects he has collaborated with among others Ryuichi Sakamoto. Under the name Alva Noto he has mounted performances at venues such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, Centre Pompi­dou in Paris and Tate Modern in London. Most recently Nicolai has arranged the music for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s latest film, The Revenant.
