Artists and artworks presented at Soundmarks

Curatorial text

You will find the exhibition Soundmarks in the streets of Struer. It consists of a number of artworks created for ‘The City of Sound’, Struer. Common for all artworks in this exhibition is that they are artistic suggestions or investigations of soundmarks in Struer.

The exhibition has the idea of a soundmark as its point of departure. Just like a landmark a soundmark is specific to a site. Further, a soundmark is something that produces a space. Among animals the bird marks its territory through song and thereby creates a space that other birds relate to. The bell of the local church is similarly a soundmark, even if it has a very different function. Through a soundmark we as individuals personally relate to a specific site, we sense it and we are marked by it.

The exhibition presents works by Danish and international artists that in various ways reflect the idea of a soundmark.  The featured artists are Alejandra & Aeron (ES/US), Jens Settergren (DK), Steve Roden (US), Ursula Nistrup (DK), Kristoffer Akselbo (DK), Nikolaj Nielsen Philipsen, Troels Nøhr Holmstrøm &  Michael ‘Stoffer’ Christensen (DK), Jio Shimizu (JP), Tao V. Sambolec (NL/SI).

The exhibition presents various methods and formats that each in their own way create a dialogue with the public space, from performative interventions to installations and graphical works in the form of posters.
