‘You are in my veins, you fuck’ is a statement uttered by top model Kate Moss about her dramatic love affair with musician Pete Doherty.
A relationship unfolding itself as a mixture of love, addiction and obsession. Such dark objects of desire and the duality of the seductive and the constrictive form the starting point of the exhibition You Are in My Veins.
Set in public urban spaces rather than inside a dedicated art venue, the exhibition entwines itself into the fabric of Aarhus as an intimate, anti-monumental presence that is all about states of mind and affect.
It takes the ephemerality, intensity and pathos of music as a major inspiration behind its form.
You Are in My Veins is curated by curator Charlotte Sprogøe who has invited six artists from Denmark and abroad to create new works for Aarhus, ranging from a theme song, music videos, film and sculptural installations to a performance and concert. Each work reflects particular mental states, exploring the realms of the spiritual, the psychological and the hedonistic, creating variation on moods and tones throughout the inner city of Aarhus.
