Jacob Kirkegaard - all & nothing

February 2017 until May 31, 2017

The Danish artist Jacob Kirkegaard (b.1975) enjoys international recognition for his fascinating recordings of all manner of sounds. Using advanced equipment, Kirkegaard makes submarine sound recordings, records the resonance of abandoned rooms and pitches deep inside the human ear. Kirkegaard’s works are created in response to the fact that everything contains sound. Through a combination of scientific examinations and artistic stagings, he demonstrates how sound is often given a low priority in the modern visual world. The exhibition Jacob Kirkegaard – all & nothing presents five of Kirkegaard’s striking sound installations of which the work Black Metal Square 1 – 3 is a new production, created specifically for the presentation of Kirkegaard at ARoS.
