Shaped by Time
Shaped by Time documents and reflects critically on the curatorial research project, which culminated in an exhibition at the National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen.
Twenty-eight artists and writers were invited to research and respond to the prehistoric collection, composed of historical artifacts from the end of the Ice Age to the Viking Age. In dialogue with the curators and museum historians, each artist made a new site-sensitive work. The exhibition, a curatorial collaboration between curator Milena Hoegsberg and artist Julie Sass, responds to the permanent prehistoric collection and its recent restaging, intended to make the experience of history more digestible and exciting to audiences. Through commissioned works, embedded in the permanent collection, the exhibition engaged with the museum’s architecture, methodology of display, its theatrical use of sound and lighting.
