Welcome Too Late

Iain Ball, Marguerite Humeau, Katja Novitskova et al

18 mar – 28 may 2017 Opening: 17 mar 2017 19:00


When everything from climate to technology is changing at accelerating pace, it’s increasingly difficult to keep up. The future undercuts the present and the present recedes into the past at ever greater speed. Artists and documentarists experience arriving too late to the moment they’re trying to capture.

Instead of running after time, attempting to zoom in on the present moment, the tendency is now towards zooming out on other and bigger temporalities. This is the premise for the group exhibition Welcome Too Late in light of changes such as explosive population growth, rising temperatures and sea levels, automation, artificial intelligence, growing inequality, prospects of eternal life, resurrection of animal species and mass extinction.

Among others, the exhibition presents sculptures and movies by young artists as Iain Ball (1985, UK), Marguerite Humeau (1986, FR), and Katja Novitskova (1984, EE). Welcome Too Late is presented in collaboration with CPH:DOX and is curated by Toke Lykkeberg.

Welcome Too Late can be experienced at Kunsthal Charlottenborg until May 28. The exhibition will be free during CPH:DOX March 16. – 26, after which Kunsthal Charlottenborgs regular entrance fee will apply.
