Julian Rosefeldt exhibition Nikolaj Kunsthal

This exhibition presents a series of work by the German artist Julian Rosefeldt produced over the past 15 years.
Deep Gold is based on the Spanish filmmaker Louis Buñuel’s 1930 film L’Âge d’Or. Louis Buñuels wrote the story by following the surrealistic method of automatic writing. It caused quite a scandal in its day.
The Swap seems like a cliche of a gangster film. A scene describes a meeting between two groups of gangsters in a container terminal changing suitcases. The actors are performing a precise choreography without saying a single word. Some movements are repeated which strengthen the connection to a dance, mostly modern dance because of the use of contraction and release. The combination of modern dance and gangsters is quite funny but it also creates a focus on how we move around each other in a given situation as human.
