A kinetic machine simulating snowing indoor in which pure white snowflakes descend and slowly change colour from white to black. At once strangely misplaced and intriguing, a subtle drama unfolds within the bittersweet beauty. It is with great pleasure that we present the work The Ashes of Snow, created specifically for Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art by the artist Carla Chan, who will be presenting her very first exhibition in Denmark.
The project is supported by the A.P. Møller og Hustru Chastine Mc-Kinney Møllers Fond til Almene Formaal, Augustinus Fonden, The Danish Arts Foundation, The City of Copenhagen, Hong Kong Arts Development Fund of the Home Affairs Bureau, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, S.C. Van Fonden og Møbeltransport Danmark – Fine Art Logistics. Thank you to Jan Bernstein for kinetic design.
N.B. Unfortunately, it is not possible to visit the ‘The Ashes of Snow’ exhibition in a wheelchair.
