Books and newspapers are cut into horizontal stripes, pressed and glued into a whole with exactly the same format as the original.
Denmark refers to this transformation as a dead letter, because only traces of the text remain on the surface.
Cut books, magazines or newspapers, compressed, riveted, clamped, or screwed, between pieces of wood or other materials.
Each page is folded into the smallest possible volume. This reduction of surface is a metaphor for Denmark’s quest for the essence. Presented in series or entire years of publication, the works become monumental mosaics.
Discarded archives are made unreadable and transformed into new ones. Not to be consulted, but rather to be observed. To force the viewer to pause and reflect.
Set up in unique international locations such as museums, factories, warehouses, and abbeys, the temporary installations only lasted for a few hours, weeks or months. Truths are not set in stone and are subject to change.
Over the last five decades, Denmark has had a wide range of solo exhibitions in national and international galleries and museums.
Over the last decades, Denmark participated in more than 120 group exhibitions in Belgium and abroad.
