With this summer’s special exhibition ‘CONNECTED: Art.Nature.Sorø.’, we complete the exhibition trilogy ‘Nature Talks’ with a special focus on contemporary artists’ view of nature in and around Sorø.
Several artists from the two previous exhibitions ‘Nature Talks’ (2021) and ‘Back to the roots’ (2022) return to the museum together with three local artists, who are all invited into a dialogue with nature in Sorø. They focus on nature’s underlying communications systems, the longing for cohesion and the role of climate change in their studies of nature.
Through works by eleven Danish artists, we explore the relationship between nature, communication and art. Can art expand our understanding and experience of nature? What meanings and ideas are attached to the local nature? And what happens in the meeting between contemporary art and nature in Sorø?
Look forward to discovering works inside and outside the museum’s walls. Some of the artists produce completely new works for the exhibition, while others contribute existing works. Works will be shown all around Sorø – both in the city and in the forest.
The participating artists: Amitai Romm, Andreas Rasmussen, Anna Bak, Dan Stockholm, Laurits Malthe Gulløv, Lisbeth Bank, Pernille Bøggild, Regitze Engelsborg Karlsen, René Schmidt, Sonja Strange and Silas Inoue.
Opening event: Thursday 15 June at 5-6:30 pm.
