Collected Memory

Politikens Forhal
Solo show
Collected Memory is a work that is silent from the outside yet filled with voices as painting has always been. How to consider the status of collective memory in our present times, whereas all our social and human references are constantly changing or mutating?

The Shape of Us

Horsens Kunstmuseum, Horsens, Denmark
Solo show
In the solo exhibition “The Shape of Us” at Horsens Art Museum, Mille Kalsmose examines our identity and relations through a selection of new, large-scale installations. With artworks that combine iron, living matter, blood, algae, moss, rocks, silk, wood, plaster and sound effects as her medium, Kalsmose enters a broad field of research of the human existence. She is exploring the inner realms, but also looking into what is stored within our collective human consciousness. Constellations of material and non-palpable elements make up artworks remarkable on both the physical as well as conceptual plan, and the works point towards elements and concepts that transgress what we know from our everyday lives.
