Utopia at Sacre, Nikolaj Kunsthal

By Cecilie Waagner Falkenstrøm

Utopia er et godt ikke-sted, som ligger på virkelighedens yderste grænse – på grænsen til det umulige. I hvert øjeblik bliver Utopia skabt af vores (u)mulige drømme.

For at komme til Utopia må vi sætte vores vildeste drømme fri. Vi må vove at slippe paradokserne, uvidenheden og uvisheden løs, når vi spørger os selv: Hvilke (u)mulige drømme har vores tid brug for?

Utopia is a good non-existing place on the edge of reality. In every moment Utopia is created by our (im)possible dreams. Thus, in order to give form to Utopia we must release our wildest dreams.

Outside the exhibition space the visitors speak their (im)possible dreams into an old telephone. Through interactive technology the visitors articulations of their (im)possible dreams are transformed into moving patterns of sound and light inside the exhibition space – sound and light emerge and reemerge in an ongoing process of creation.

/ Wall-, interactive sound- and light installation
/ Large scale art installation

My experience piece Utopia explores the boundary of human imagination. By moving back and forth between different layers of imagination the experience piece attempts to capture an instant in the intersection between reality and impossibility.
