Kunsthal Charlottenborg presents Christina Mackie exhibition opening 25 May

Kunsthal Charlottenborg presents an exhibition of work by Christina Mackie on view 25 May–5 August 2012.

This is the first exhibition in Scandinavia by the Canadian artist Christina Mackie, and consists of an extraordinary installation that features such diverse elements as watercolors, photographs, and ceramics, as well as found materials that range from mineral deposits to plastic beer crates. The exhibition follows Mackie’s ongoing fascination with both human technologies and natural materials, and her exploration of the connections that run between people, societies, and the natural world.

Mackie’s exhibition is conceived as a single installation in two main parts. One part reflects the artist’s studio environment, and features makeshift tables and shelves on which are arranged a host of found and crafted objects—a sequence which follows a principle of repetition and morphosis that is relevant to Mackie’s work as a whole. The second part of the exhibition contains a scaffold of steel bars, a structure which is used to support a series of large-scale photographic prints depicting solitary figures in high-rise apartment buildings.
