SCULPTURE ODENSE 14 has the tagline Still Waters Run Deep. Danish and international artists have been invited to exhibit both in inner-city Odense and its green spaces, thereby creating a route through different times, moods and locations.

Through time the city of Odense has been shaped by cultural changes and every view, every square and every street contain several historical, spatial and human dimensions. Still Waters Run Deep takes the shapes of the city, where immaterial values and moods mix with specific experiences, as its starting point. Traces, feelings, forgotten times, dramas and perceptions suddenly stand out when the sculptures make their entry in Odense.

The exhibition will explore the interaction between the facades and the depths of the city. It will use Odense as a sculptural space where passages are like portals between past and future: the sculptures vary from modernist explorations of reflections, spaces and material to contemporary social and psychological experiments which excavate our perception of reality. Most of the new commissioned works explore objects and places as cultural deposits representing both individual and collective worlds.

SCULPTURE ODENSE presents 20 Danish and international artists / artist collectives: Nina Beier (DK), David Douard (FR), Tiril Hasselknippe (NO), Nanna Rützou Abell (DK), SUPERFLEX (DK), Theis Wendt (DK), Gabriel Kuri (MEX), Simon Fujiwara (UK), Jette Hye Jin Mortensen (DK), Tue Greenfort (DK), Annesofie Sandal (DK), Jiri Kovanda (CZ), Søren Cip Nielsen (DK), FOS (DK), Mikkel Carl (DK), A KASSEN (DK), Ib Agger (DK), Mathias & Mathias (DK) and students from The Funen Art Academy.

The exhibition is curated by Charlotte Sprogøe.

SCULPTURE ODENSE replaces Sculpture in the Fairytale Garden. The first sculpture triennial opened in 1961. City of Odense Art Foundation, Brandts, Funen Art Academy, Gæsteatelier Hollufgaard and Funen Graphic Workshop support the new sculpture exhibition.
