The Present and The Future will take place on the roof of ARoS, in the heart of Aarhus, at the Natural History Museum, Aarhus, in the park Mindeparken, in the street M.P. Bruuns Gade, at the local nightclub Shen Mao, in several warehouses in the city’s industrial harbour, and along a coastal stretch from Tangkrogen to Ballehage.

Bei unserem Spaziergang entlang der Küste von Tangrogen bis zum Strand von Ballehoge konnten wir auf einer unendlichen Brücke ein Stück übers Meer laufen.

Anssi Pulkkinen & Taneli Rautiainen, Constrained view

Anssi Pulkkinen and Taneli Rautiainen work with sculptures, installations and moving images with an interest in space and architecture, favouring distortion of the norm as the approach for their art. For The Garden, they have created ‘Constrained view’, a two-part installation around questions of freedom, movement, augmented reality and different notions of the pace of time. The artwork consists of a billboard depicting the bridge between Copenhagen and Malmö, which appears to be broken, and a car filled with seawater lifted up in the air. The water constantly flows out of the car, in essence making the car work like a fountain.
