press release

MUSAC, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León, is to host the first major exhibition in Spain for Danish artist Kirstine Roepstorff. Under the title The Inner Sound that Kills the Outer, the show brings together over 50 works produced between 2005 and 2008 in a range of formats (collage, painting, sculpture and mixed media), in an attempt to provide an overview of the artist’s prolific production. Roepstorff explores a range of techniques, but finds a common root in the use of collage as the starting point of her creative process. Alongside her more widely acclaimed works, MUSAC presents the artist’s most recent production, including the installation Quiet Theatre (2008), produced in collaboration with Copenhagen’s U-TURN Quadrienial for Contemporary Art. The piece brings a new approach to collage techniques, placing them within a theatrical and performative context.
