Olivier Mosset – TUTU / Kirstine Roepstorff – EX CAVE
May 30 - Sep 8 2019
This summer Museum Haus Konstruktiv pays tribute to two artists in two solo exhibitions. Olivier Mosset (b. 1944) is considered to be one of the most radical representatives of contemporary painting. Taking the question of what painting is and how it works as a starting point, he created a diverse oeuvre consisting of monochrome and abstract geometric works that reject any kind of mystifying interpretation. Mosset’s oeuvre is now comprehensively presented at Museum Haus Konstruktiv. In her exhibition, Kirstine Roepstorff (b. 1972) explores darkness and its meanings. Although most often associated with the unknown and the uncanny, for Roepstorff darkness doesn't have any negative connotations. At Museum Haus Konstruktiv, the Danish artist has built an installation that leads visitors from the light to the darkness. Roepstorff invites the public down a cleverly devised path, set out as a journey through darkness, to explore an invented, ostensibly barren landscape of gravel and concrete elements, within which a multitude of selected works by the artist are to be discovered.
