Artist Talk: Kasper Hesselbjerg

Art Sonje Center holds an Artist Talk of Kasper Hesselbjerg at 7 pm on 10 April, 2018. Kasper Hesselbjerg will give an introduction to his artistic practice and one of his main enquiries throughout his work; how the meaning of an object is established.
Here food has often served as a prime example of a complex object when it comes to unravel “the meaning”. On the one hand an edible object is a highly cultural sign to be “read and understood”. We use food to express who we are, in social media for instance. On the other hand, it is obviously composed of raw material to be grasped with the senses and a subjective “taste”. An experience that require with one’s own body and therefore an experience impossible to circulate in other ways than as an image.
Hesselbjerg will present several works in order to discuss the interconnection between the sensorous and the intelligible. He will focus on the experience of objects as something that has to do with one’s notions of reality and thus relates to new possible modes of existence.
