The works in this exhibition embrace the very nature of what is ’man-made’ by playfully repurposing existing materials, resources, even capturing the immaterial. Through diverse practices, they reflect on how materials can be re-appropriated, take on parallel existences, or be in dialogue with each other.

På denne udstilling omfavner værkerne selve ideen om det der er “menneskeskabt” ved i fri ånd enten at skabe nyt eller genbruge eksisterende materialer og ressourser, eller endda indfange det immaterielle. Gennem kunstnernes forskellige praksiser reflekteres der over hvordan materialer kan gen-udnyttes, antage parallelle betydningslag eller være i dialog med hinanden.
