The Group exhibition 'Radical Technology' opened the 14th October on the gated ressourcestation of Norrecco, at the island Prøvestenen in Copenhagen.
To manifest and make visible the resources that are hidden from our gaze and consciousness the exhibition is curated within the vast landscape of recycled building materials of Norrecco. The exhibition offers a radical proximity to the amount of construction waste produced just within the capital region - counting 400 incoming trucks a day - The exhibition opens up a gated landscape that bares both witness to the present conditions of the construction industry as well as the many potentials of the dynamic piles.
5 works alongside a mini-publication including 5 text-based works were installed on the 1st floor of the registration office and 6 works were installed outdoors among building materials and machinery. During the opening period (14-15th October) a guided walk on the site offered information about the exact materials, amounts, potentials and recycling process of the construction waste on site.
The works all depart from inner technology and they propose alternatives as well as they reveal connections between objects and components that construct the bounded environment that constitutes our home and extraction sites as well as energy infrastructure and planning of landscapes. The works together form a temporary environment where both vast immaterial structures and the materiality of tiny stones comes into close sight.
