30. January – 26. April 2015
The Museum of Contemporary Art is proud to present the first solo exhibition of the Danish sound artist and composer Jacob Kirkegaard in Denmark from 30. January – 26. April 2015.
Kirkegaard has since 1995 worked with sounds that usually remain inaccessible to the human ear. He uses real sound recordings from surprising, unknown or impassable places. Kirkegaard has recorded the sound of singing sand in the Oman desert. He has recorded the sound of the abandoned rooms in the radioactive zone in Tjernobyl – closed down since the nuclear catastrophe in 1986. He has even recorded fine subtle tones generated by the inner human ear itself.
The exhibition is primarily retrospective and presents the most important works of Kirkegaard for the last ten years.
