DIS|CONNECTED is an ode to times of isolation, how distancing oneself from the everyday creates depth, stillness and slowing down.
It is a status that many artists seek during creation. How dissolution provides a connection to another reality. For some a blessing, for others a curse.
Expect a series of multi-disciplinary and eclectic creations by Archipel residents and local artists, who found refuge in their work during this pandemic, exhibited at the former slaughterhouse site, on the ragged edges of the city.
The site, disconnected from city life, freed from interpretation and free for the arts, but constantly narrowing and diminishing and teetering on an uncertain future between the encroaching construction zones.
Experience how the artworks in this context generate new meaning for the wasteland and the derelict buildings. On the one hand different from each other by their individuality, on the other hand connected by the condition of the site.
In the city or apart from the city? Does the connection with the city or the lack of it provide the inspiration for the artists who built their temporary workplaces here, or is it just the combination of both?
Both the pandemic and the transformation of this piece of wasteland and all the movements in between are the input for this exhibition.
