In her first solo exhibition in Denmark, Oreet Ashery explores the potentials and dilemmas of liberation in a culture at odds with itself. The exhibition Party for Freedom takes its title from the Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilder’s neo-liberal freedom party Partij voor de Vrijheid, known for its anti-immigration views.
A three-screen video projection forms a tableau of ten audio-visual sequences with a specially commissioned soundtrack ranging from contemporary classical music to jazz fusion and punk. Creating a sensory universe imbedded in trash aesthetics that combines a film essay with performative scenarios, the work explores freedom as a deeply conflicted and contradictory entity.
