Det er en stor glæde at byde velkommen til re — en soloudstilling af Marie Thams. 

I re præsenterer Thams en ny installation, der kombinerer lyd, tekst, video og skulpturelle udsagn. Udstillingen er en reaktion på den uligevægt Thams oplever i værdisætningen af reproduktion i forhold til økonomisk og professionel produktion i det senkapitalistiske samfund, vi befinder os i. Et samfund der domineres af arbejdsmarkedets normer og høje forventninger til arbejderens omsættelige produktion. I re behandler Thams denne oplevelse igennem egen stemme og reproduktive krop koblet med skulpturelle udsagn, der sammen danner en omsluttende installation, specifikt udformet til c4 projects rum. 

Marie Thams (f. 1982, DK) er uddannet fra Det Kgl. Danske Kunstakademis Billedkunstskoler i 2011, og Goldsmiths, London i 2009. Thams’ arbejde er drevet af spørgsmål om arbejdskulturens diktering af identitet og kunstnerisk værd, og om relationen mellem biologisk krop og social/politisk status, som eksempel. Hendes værker samler sig af lyd, tekst, video samt skulpturelle og performative elementer, og udformes ofte som større installationer. I hendes seneste arbejde har hun haft særligt fokus på talt lyrisk tekstbåde som selvstændige værker, men også som del af rummelige installationer og som publikationer.

It is a great pleasure to be able to invite you to re—a solo exhibition by Marie Thams.
In re Thams presents a new installation combining sound, text, video and sculptural utterances. The exhibition is a reaction to the imbalance Thams experiences in the valuation of reproduction in relation to the economic and professional production of the late capitalist society that we currently preside over. This being a society that is dominated by the working market’s norms and has high expectations of the worker’s production and returns. In re Thams deals with this experience through her own voice and reproductive body coupled with sculptural utterances, which together make an encompassing installation specifically designed for c4 project’s space.
Marie Thams (b. 1982, DK)  holds an MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Visual Arts, Copenhagen, 2011, and a BA (Hons) from Goldsmiths, London, 2009. Thams’ work is driven by questions around our working culture’s dictation of identity and artistic value, and the relation between biological body and social/political status, for example. Her work often includes a combination of video, sound, text and sculptural and performative elements, resulting in larger installations. Most recently she has had a special focus on spoken, poetic text—both as independent work, as part of larger installations and as publications.
