GENSYN / REUNION

GENSYN (Danish for reunion) is a an art project about telling stories, passing on local historical cultural heritage from the Danish island of Mors and creating new narratives through images.

 

In GENSYN, collage artist Klara Espersen, the archive at the historical Museum Mors and regional theatre Limfjordsteatret have collaborated in order to convey old local images and local history from a new artistic perspective.

 

Klara Espersen worked her way through many thousands of photographs at the archive, hunting for exceptional images and stories. From the found photographs Klara Espersen has created digital collages, where fragments of the old photographs are put together into a new, surrealistic reality.

 

All parts of the collages - also backgrounds - in GENSYN are created with items found at the museums archives. Each fragment is registered, so it is possible to trace all elements back to their origins and their original story. 

The collages and their new narratives build bridges from past to present, from reality to fantasy, from the inner to the outer world. 

Thus they become very personal and alternative ways of interpreting the island's history and should give us an understanding, that there are many ways to see and understand the past. 

The works created in GENSYN are all part of a permanent exhibition at Limfjordsteatret in Nykøbing Mors open to the public. 

As part of the art project GENSYN, Klara Espersen, Museum Mors and Limfjordsteatret worked with local schools on discovering the archives, getting to know more about local history and creating new narratives through analogue and digital collage workshops. You can see a gallery of the students works here

 

GENSYN was supported by KulturKANten (cultural council) of Northern Jutland and Statens Kunstfond (The Danish Arts Council)
