Sculptures Also Die offering a reflection on contemporary sculpture curated by Lorenzo Benedetti through new and existing work by twelve Italian and international artists who will be forging a reflection on the meaning, the potential and the new experimental approaches in sculpture today. Contemporary artists tend to use new forms and materials to address a broader time span in an ongoing dialogue between the past and the future; yet at the same time, the exhibition reflects on the way in which today’s artists are also rediscovering such materials as bronze, stone or ceramic, that appeared to have been relegated to the purely academic sphere. These materials are rediscovered and used in a conceptual manner to reflect on such themes as the monument, the fragment, the way materials wear over time, and the recovery of the recent modernist past.

Nina Beier. Charlottenborg.

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).
