ARoS Triennial
Various locations


DO WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY is located at the beach near Mindepark, Aarhus

For The Garden, the first ARoS Triennial in Aarhus, artist Rirkrit Tiravanija and architects Nikolaus Hirsch and Michel Müller have developed a new version of their ongoing project DO WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY comprised of a pavilion and a dense program of films, talks and cooking.

In the logic of an exquisite corpse, the pavilion can be seen as a disembodied part of the future artist residency and workshop at The Land, a self-sustaining artistic community initiated by Rirkrit Tiravanija and Kamin Lertchaiprasert near Chiang Mai in Thailand that engages with the idea of an artistic utopia and presents both an ecological and sustainable model for future artistic practice. Reminiscent of a Surrealist “exquisite corpse”—beginning with a single contribution that continues to grow piecemeal—various architects, engineers, and artists will contribute different building components (such as structure, façade, etc.) to this unusual architectural assemblage as a collective work.

After its first manifestation at Art Basel in 2015, the pavilion in Aarhus presents the first version of the building in its future dimensions of 22x22 meters. The structure houses several kitchen and garden elements within which the various themes of the project will be played out. Investigating models and practices of sustainability, the geopolitics of food, and building technologies in the era of the anthropocene, Tiravanija, Hirsch and Müller have put together a public program that runs daily from June 3 to July 30.

The installation will function as a platform and conceptual extension to “the land” in the form of a series of talks with Doug Aitken, Marie Nipper & Erlend Høyersten, Lars Brøndum, Rasmus Ejrnæs, Thomas Laursen, Bo Lidegaard, Jacob Lillemose, Anders Lenager, Hans Joakim Offenberg, Kim Qvist, Jesper Theilgaard, Anette Vansø, Signe Wenneberg, Simon Starling, and Superflex.

The cooking sessions use local, organic ingredients. New dishes will be hybridized and altered by Rirkrit Tiravanija, Jan Pfeifer, Niels Birk, and Bjørn Madsen.
