Dissolution, imbalance, disorientation, collapse and loss of control are core
themes in the work of Pernille With Madsen (b. 1972). Through video,
photography, drawing and installation With Madsen creates various
impossible, but insisting experiments, which, in each their own way, evokes
a fundamental scale-related and spatial confusion in the spectator. Through simple,
but often difficult and backwards measures, the artist establishes a universe which
affects the spectator both visually, physically and mentally, and which cause a
feeling of forfeiture through a combination of dizziness, euphoria, visual distortion and
spatial deconstruction. Besides the physical, almost phenomenological, effect With
Madsen’s works have on the spectator, the artist also have an ambition to dissolve
the symbolic and authoritative values of architecture and to let in a sliver of
disorientation and loss of control, to expose the underlying structures which saturate
space and architecture.
