Show Time: Choreography in Contemporary Art

Curator: Liberty Paterson
January – March 2012
Gl Holtegaard, Holte, Denmark

SHOW TIME brought together eight artists that lift methodologies and ideas from the worlds of choreography, dance and architecture and use these to explore how the environment affects our movements, habits and gestures. Many of the artists work across the boundaries of specific art forms to combine sculpture, installation, film, performance and dance. Furthermore, the exhibition as a whole sought to play with the fluidity of time by presenting an array of works that reference multiple times and unfold at varying speeds. Within this remit video works provided a universe of possibilities for the body in motion and enabled the audience to traverse multiple sites and times.

In addition to the exhibition SHOW TIME included a publication, a seminar, an artist residency and a film.

Artists: Pablo Bronstein (Argentina/UK), Cao Fei (China), Jacqueline Doyen (France), Inci Eviner (Turkey), Shaun Gladwell (Australia), Nina Saunders (Denmark). Exhibition residency: Sans façon – Charles Blanc & Tristan Surtees (France/UK). Choreographer of live performances: Luis Lara Malvacias (Venezuela/US). Dancers: from The Danish School of Theatre and Contemporary Dance.
