Exhibition & book launch in Fængslet 4 and 5 November
29 October 2023
This spring Niels Borring was invited to contribute to the upcoming book ”Metamorfose – kunsten at forvandle” (Metamorphosis – the art of transformations) with an art work. The book with +20 contributions from artists and experts is now ready for presentation at an exhibition with a selection of the original artworks at Fængslet, a huge prison in Horsens, Jutland, now a museum. The protagonist of the book and exhibition is P.A. Alberti, Minister of Justice from 1901-8. After he was sentenced for committing financial crime during his term as minister, Alberti was an inmate at the prison. What he experienced was a steep fall from the top of the society to the very bottom. The artworks focus on the transformations of a human being during a lifetime – between the outer reality and the inner life, between light and a shadowy world, between the visible and the hidden, and between reality and imagination. Niels Borring’s artwork is featured on the poster. The exhibition is open Saturday 4 November 10-16 and Sunday 5 November 10-16.
