The Market (2021)


For centuries market life, in its diversity and explosive social nature, has folded artists, merchants, and peddlers into its structural fabric. Following the outbreak of the corona pandemic, the market space has gained a new place in our consciousness as the epicenter of contagion. The exhibition The Market positions its point of departure from this nullified space. At Simian, in the proximity of the shopping mall Field’s, the spectator enters a delusional view of a mall - an abandoned, haunted market with stalls of many kinds, evolving in a state of advanced dissolution.

The Market was awarded by The Danish Arts Foundation
