Ultimate impact
– 5 phenomena in Nordic design culture

ragnarok
fantasy
silence
exoticism
baroque

The participating artists are identified from a cross disciplinary perspective. They originate from Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Denmark and will all be included in a comprehensive group of the most experimental and avant-garde Nordic designers, artists, photographers, crafts people, writers and more.

The narrative is based upon the actual works and inspirational sources of the individual artists and will be composed by a number of themes based on myths, historic traces (modern and ancient history) and site specific phenomena.

The exhibition is supported by The Nordic Culture Fund, Beckett-Fonden, Knud Højgaards Fond, and Grosserer L.F. Foghts Fond.
