The Eradicated Skyline
København V, 1778 Danmark
6. June 2019 - 17. June 2019
This exhibition is part of a larger showcasing in Carlsberg Byens Galleri og Kunstsalon. There are in total 6 exhibition and one filmfestival. You can find links to the other exhibitions at the end of this paragraph.
In the solo exhibition “The Eradicated Skyline” Tim van den Oudenhoven presents two photo series that within their aesthetic negation investigates the circumstances surrounding how we perceive the landscape. Through his work, van den Oudenhoven presents the contradictions within the metaphysical properties that landscapes consist of, in terms of their beauty, only vocalized and put into existence when articulated by an observer. This despite of its constant surveillance and existence. The two photo series put together is the eternal black landscapes in small islands of light in “Horror Vacui” that clearly announces some form of human activity and the pixelated and almost disappearing white roads in “Surveillancescapes” who’s screenshots reveal to the viewers that they are actively engaging in surveillance. Both series demand an assessment and the viewers own expectation of the landscape in order to process how we use surveillance in our society and what impact that has on our understanding of the landscape as a whole.
Part of the exhibition is presented in motion activated light boxes, which only reveal their image after a sensor has been triggered. The light boxes force the viewer to act as a voyeur, whether they want to or not. The choice to activate the light screens thereby occur unintentionally by ones presence in the room and intentionally by ones natural curiosity.
