Early-May art 2: The boundaries between dream and reality

At the crack of dawn
ongoing, ends May 23; LARMGalleri, Bredgade 73, Cph K; larmgalleri.dk

The group exhibition At the Crack of Dawn deals with what happens in the early morning: the transition of the human being from a state of being a simple perceiver of its surroundings to being in a state of actual awareness and in this form being able to make sense of the environment.

Including work from the likes of Toni Matelli, Gavin Turk and Nicola Samori, it explores the boundaries between dream and reality, and how human subjectivity works. It attempts to investigate media constructions and how they channel and influence the means of communication.
