- ART ROOM
artist in residence
Focused primarily on the way in which the Danish culture systematically represses its involvement with the transatlantic trade of black bodies, luxury commodities, and human labor, Ehlers’s installations galvanize our senses, inviting a cinematic revolt against collective oblivion. Tracing the colonial wounds inflicted by the transatlantic diaspora in the oral memories of her own father, a Trinidadian descendant of enslaved Africans, her installations could be described as a video-vodou invocation of the Haitian revolution.
The ART ROOM hosts three exhibitions per year. This on-line gallery has been conceived as an experimental window for the study of contemporary art as a global-scale phenomenon. This virtual gallery welcomes projects from guest curators interested in exploring e-curatorship strategies.
