This publication accompanies an exhibition at Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen by the Danish artist Nina Beier. The exhibition – which is the artist’s first major solo show in the Scandinavian region – consists of an entirely new body of work.
The book is the third in a series of publications related to the exhibitions in Charlottenborg's North galleries (the first editions featured Clemens von Wedemeyer and Pablo Bronstein). It is designed by Sara De Bondt studio in London and features an introductory essay entitled Demonstration by Charlottenborg’s curator and editor of the publication, Rhea Dall, together with an essay by the writer and curator Dieter Roelstraete. The latter text was generated by Roelstraete together with Beier as a result of their conversation and, rather than explaining the exhibition, it heads straight into an exploration of its conceptual span. The text weaves into and expands upon the art works, which is also why it is presented with a range of photographic footnotes – many of which document or relate to Beier’s practice. This essayistic stream of consciousness functions as an integral part of the show, one that does not separate the object (the exhibition) from its illustration (the catalogue).
