The Danish Pavilion 2017

Developed by visual artist Kirstine Roepstorff, the exhibition project influenza. theatre of glowing darkness challenges us to embrace darkness as a positive force of healing, transformation, and empowerment. The exhibition will explore the metamorphosis that occurs between the destruction of the known and the embrace of the new. Darkness dissolves form and can be seen as the void out of which all things arise.
