GUIDED TOUR • Solo artist Marcus DeSieno • Geography of Disappearance

On June 9th, from 14:30 to 15:00, Marcus DeSienowill give a guided tour of his solo exhibition at the Festival Center.

American artist Marcus DeSieno’s series of wet plate emulsion images, ‘Geography of Disappearance’, critically examines the border landscape of deliberate oppression of immigrants trying to cross the US-Mexican border. His project exposes the power structures deeply embedded in the American landscape and history through a deliberate and concise use of 19th century wet plate technology and lith printing. With this project DeSieno wants to foster a conversation about the risk of dehumanising immigrants as a global issue that only escalates as conflicts, wars and climate catastrophes close in on our communities.

Helle Søndergaard, the arts facilitator at Louisiana, will take you on a tour of the current exhibition featuring acclaimed American contemporary artist Roni Horn. Horn's work spans multiple media, including film and photography. The exhibition, characterized by a seemingly razor-sharp and cool aesthetic, contrasts themes of humanity and landscape, permanence and changeability, and obscurity and transparency, all expressed through the dynamic interplay of light, water, and weather.

The exhibition delves into themes of subtle undertones, secret messages, and erotic signals, showcasing Horn’s art in dialogue with classic films by directors such as Bergman, Dreyer, von Trier, Chabrol, and Hitchcock. These pairings reveal the profound influence of cinema on Horn’s work and highlight an intense focus on sexuality, the body, eroticism, and desire—elements often hidden beneath the surface of her conceptual imagery. Key works from throughout her career are featured, illustrating these intricate themes.
