Satellietgroep and Rewire cordially invite to the Premiere of 'Refugium' at GEMAK.
For years the work of Henrik Lund Jørgensen has evolved around the theme of the sea, directly or indirectly in video, text, objects, and more. In recent years he worked thematically with the sea as a place where sanctions and ordinary conventions can be rare, sometimes even not exist and in other times new even has to be created.
During his residency at Badgast Henrik Lund Jørgensen collected pictures and stories from Scheveningen and The Hague. When he returned to Sweden, it dawned on him that he would use these images and stories in a way that could be explained by the feeling you have after you have been on a vacation. The uncertainty regarding what you have experienced or what are imagined experiences. The starting point for the work on the movie ‘Refugium’ and sculpture ‘Bottle’ evolves around the relationship between a picture or photograph and the physical distance to where it was taken. As in his previous work these pieces should be viewed in the light of themes as ethnicity and belonging.
