Room Service

  • About

    Room Service is a solo exhibition by Sophie Hjerl created based on Carlsberg’s former Maskincentral, the Water Tower building. The exhibition presents a central work using Virtual Reality (VR), as well as sculpture and light installations. The works open to a new spatial and temporal version of the actual physical spaces and at the same time offer a story that is also related to the former use of the rooms.

    The exhibition is physically located on the 7th floor in two mirrored spaces connected by two identical rooms. Through the VR work, a transformation and manipulation of the actual surrounding space is experienced, and with the VR medium’s ability to create 360-degree space, it is endeavored that both spaces meet with specific contrasts. The work wants to challenge the perception of space: The actual physical, material versus the virtual and the intangible, the organic and the analog, versus the synthetic and the digital.

    The exhibition was developed in collaboration with Statens Kunstfund, The Animation Workshop, Plastic Art Collective and Copenhagen Municipality Culture Committee of Visual Arts.
