Wood, textile, leash, weights, variable dimensions, 2009

Udtræk (Extract) is an installation made specifically for an 18th century back building in Copenhagen. With textile, wood and weights, the window format’s various elements are being mimed and stretched out into the yard’s space and into the Modtar Projects’ exhibition room on the second floor. In this way, Udtræk has to do with an interaction with the building’s skeleton while the work plays with the understanding of some of spacious architecture’s fundamental principles: the human being’s scale in relation to a building’s elements, as well as the question of when an element is situated inside or outside a given space.
