At her first major solo exhibition in Copenhagen, Hannah Anbert puts the modern working life under critical scrutiny.

About

To what extent does the mantra of speed, performance, and profit of industrial culture make sense in a time where the resources of the earth are increasingly scarce and stress has become a public disease? In a series of new sculptural installations, the artist explores different aspects of the contemporary acceleration doctrine and turns our usual distinction between productive and recreational activities upside down. Amongst the works, there will be a cushioned production site for confetti, two office chairs that are raised under the ceiling as a stage for an endurance contest in sitting, as well as a circular structure covered with grass where you efficiently can take a healthy stroll. With these absurd displacements of our idea of optimisation, the exhibition humorously introduces a new value system where the slow, cheap, and ineffective is celebrated. During the exhibition period, several of the works will be activated with performances.
