yupp, its true. mikrogalleriet is without a fixed space. the room which served us so well on gormsgade 9 has been given up, and we have moved on to RUM, a work collective also on nørrebro. our new space is bigger and well suited for workshops, but not well suited for exhibitions. so please, if you happen to have a nice room for available (must be cheap, preferably on nørrebro) let us know!
in the mean time mikrogalleriet will focus on projects that are not bound to the classic gallery setup in a physical sense. more on this soon!
multiple market, including works by:
benjamin zuber (de), eduardo kac (usa), exonemo (jp), france cadet (fr), frieder nake (de), heath bunting (gb), ole kristensen (dk), tristan perich (usa), and ubermorgen.com (at)
exhibit opens 5 pm on november 18th, and runs from november 19th to 27th. opening hours: thursday through …

“the post-tropical” is a sound and video installation inspired by a recent series of field recordings made on the large island of hawaii. while making these recordings i was struck by the beauty of the flickering night sounds, a series of interlocking patterns that is not unlike the sound of synaptic firings i’ve encountered in my previous brainwave generated music. what i thought was a natural beauty, however, was in fact a hybridization of species that were indigenous and foreign to the ecosystem. some 10 years earlier, the multinational corporation wal-mart accidentally introduced frogs that are indigenous to the dominican republic / puerto rico within a shipment of packaged plants and soil. ultimately these frogs multiplied exponentially in hawaii in an environment without any natural predators. this installation is a meditation upon received notions of “nature” within a post-industrial and globalized world.
17:30 - 19:30 opening & performance
