Compact. Time. Constraint
2.9. 2022 – 1.10.2022, opening 1.9.2022 5pm
Compact. Time. Constraint. exhibits sculptures, installations and works that blur those lines. Although the size limitations were created for convenience of transport, the compactness of the works exhibited are not all physically or visually uniform. The constraining theme is imposed upon a being or material which takes on various forms. Time passing is indicated with clock hands and rolling tides both impling repetition; also found in artistic practices that require tugging, punchering, folding, angling, spinning, cutting, pressuring, and sculpting. Works exhibited range from self-standing and wall-hanging sculptures, video and other small-scale installations.

About Sharp Projects
Sharp Projects is an art gallery and curatorial project space in Copenhagen, Denmark founded by African-American independent curator Ilethia Sharp with a focus on sculpture and installation. As an independent art gallery, Sharp Projects invites internationally-based artists and curators alike to exhibit diversified concepts; with overlapping artistic practices that work through materiality and objecthood. Sharp’s interest in transnational parallels in contemporary art aesthetics and narratives indicate the focus on including artists based internationally; who would otherwise not be plurally conceptualized. Founded by a non-native, the gallery is an inevitable response to exclusionary tactics. Extended curatorial projects aim to navigate historical and experimental notions found in exhibition-making by prompting interdisciplinary collaborations of appropriated sculpture and objects.
