Jakob Kolding: Making a Scene

09.21.2016 – 10.26.2016

Exhibition Summary

The Danish artist Jakob Kolding’s solo show reflected his deepening interest in scenography. At the time of the exhibition he was collaborating with the annual performing arts festival in Bregenz, Austria, to create the stage design for a new operatic production of Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse. In the Neubauer Collegium gallery he created a stage-like environment featuring flat, life-size wood figures, surrealistic collages on paper, and large-format photomontage graphics that evoked theatrical backdrops. With its overt focus on construction and performative gesture, Making a Scene invited visitors into a drama staged at the nexus of real and imaginary space.
