Inside Out Amalie Jakobsen & Vinyl, Terror & Horror

13.11–19.12.2015

Through installation and sculpture Amalie Jakobsen and Vinyl, Terror & Horror investigate with the exhibition Inside Out the physical and mental spaces we occupy.

Vinyl, Terror & Horror's work Time Escapes is situated in the middel of the gallery space. Using theatrical effects their work tells an abstract story. The wind moves the curtain, an old clock ticks away loudly and on the record player an old tune is playing. Their work delves into our subconscious, where we are confronted by the irrational and the fear of the unknown. Using effects taken from old horror films of the sixties a brooding mood spreads throughout the gallery.

Amalie Jakobsen's work is made op of stretched yellow bands of latex criss crossing the gallery space. Using her clear and minimal visual language she measures and maps the dimensions of the space. The work create by their form and extent a body, which defines a spatiality.
