Horse Inside out

Horse Inside Out is a sensory, immersive installation and performance experience consisting of a sculpture / installation large enough for one audience member to move through a crevice and travel through several rooms. The work is a hybrid of sound, spoken poetry, installation art, performance / dance and kinetic interaction.

The Performance installation has been at ARoS Atelier (DK), Reykjavík Artmuseum (IS) and will be at AHJO Gallery (FI) in September 2021.

Horse Inside Out was designed as a collaboration with Interacting Minds Centre, Aarhus University.

Here, you can hear Andreas Roepstorff (Prof. IMC, Aarhus University) and Charlotte Nørholm (research assistant, IMC) talk about how participatory performance art can be integral in rethinking how we do social research today (31 minutes interview in Danish by Nemo Hensing).
