SOX is pleased to present the second phase of the exhibition by Ellinor Aurora Aasgaard, Zayne Armstrong and Elizabeth Ravn. The 2022 hybrid movie painting “Everyone Wants It” is followed by a sequel, “Everyone’s Had It”.
Everyone is excited to see the second part, even if they haven’t seen the first. That sounds curious but it is true I can tell you in a few words like a love poem. “Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds…”, Shakespeare wrote in Sonnet 116. This phrase fits well because I would like to show the popular elements in the work without telling what will happen. The play is text and picture based and has a time frame in which we can follow three dialogs on a LED display while the movie is built up like a multi-layered stage in the window.
The storylines are clearly separated from each other in terms of content, but spatially they are drawn together in such a way that the LED font can be reduced to a purely visual element. The dialogs light up other immaterial conversations taking place. The conversations between the protagonists, the materials, the different spaces, inside and outside, glass and textile, A and B, street and window, you and me are overlapping and through visible.
