10,000 Years After the Apple by Jeppe Lange

What do we see when we look at nature? And why don't we see ourselves?

Galleri Image presents the exhibition 10,000 Years After the Apple by the Danish visual artist and filmmaker Jeppe Lange.
Opening: 10 March, 4-6 pm. 

10,000 Years After the Apple explores the absurdities that abound in our world, but which we often take for granted because they’ve become normalized for us. 
Through video clips and photographs of everything ranging from coal mining to dog shows, Jeppe Lange confronts the viewer with our relationship to nature: How we as humans continue to frame its beauty, exploit its resources and tame its ferocity. The exhibition's centrepiece is a video work consisting of ultra-short film clips from documentary films and private recordings from the internet combined into a dreamlike logic that opens up a collective memory. In addition to the film, a myriad of prints of archival photographs will cover the walls of Galleri Image. 

The exhibition's soundtrack is created by composer and sound designer Simon Brinck.

Art publication
In connection with the opening, we will release the art book 10,000 YEARS AFTER THE APPLE, showcasing photographs and stills from the exhibition. During the opening, the book can be purchased at a reduced price.

Talk with Jeppe Lange and Rasmus Daugbjerg
Galleri Image will host a conversation in Danish between Jeppe Lange and Rasmus Daugbjerg, author of the novel Trold, where they will discuss the topic of the human relationship to nature from different perspectives. Daugbjerg approaches the topic with a focus on the origin of how we became alienated from nature, while Lange’s works explore how this division is visible all around us today.
