Kunsthallen Brandts is exhibiting for the first time in Denmark the work of London-based, Portuguese artist João Penalva. Drawing from the artist’s text-based works in various media from the last thirteen years, the exhibition presents four large installations and five films.
Arcade (2001) is a collection of hundreds of the artist’s own photographs of buildings and urban spaces, accompanied by texts that are either label-like or have intricate narratives. Comprising of two facing thirty metre-long walls, the work’s monumental scale places the viewer as a stroller in an arcade-like passageway.
