Online press release:

“The ground under the festival is given a sensual and poetic expression at Orange Stage

Working with the raw materials of the earth, Regitze Engelsborg Karlsen awakens a new sensibility towards landscapes in transformation, encouraging us to have more caring and sustainable relationships with nature. 

In 2017, she created 15 large organic sculptures out of the soil and gravel from the festival's camping area where she was interested in the area's nature and geology.

At this year's festival, Regitze Engelsborg Karlsen again focuses on the camping area with A Mountain Lives Inside Me – an artwork that examines the earth, where the many guests have their temporary home, and which will be emptied of gravel over the next 10-15 years. Her work documents a world in constant change. Through tangible materials, she connects our perceptions of the landscape and establishes narratives that lead to new encounters.

During the last days on the festival there will be a short film of her investigations on Orange and Arena stage screens where the artwork will unfold in expressive images alongside a booklet of texts and photos that will be distributed during the film.

Regitze Engelsborg Karlsen is an artist based in Sorø, Denmark. She primarily works with sculptures, texts, and research-based materials. Her works have been shown both in Denmark and internationally. Presented in collaboration with Art Hub Copenhagen as part of Residency To-Go 2023.”
