Across Copenhagen, Artists Are in Charge
COPENHAGEN — While many companies across the globe have art collections and some even hold art exhibitions within their public spaces, what is happening at Denmark’s Aquaporin is unique. Since June, the water technology purification company — in collaboration with the Danish artistic, curatorial and research collective Diakron — has hosted Primer, an exhibition space that is within its open-plan factory, laboratory and offices.
Anyone interested in seeing a free exhibition (“Life Without,” the current show by Michala Paludan, is on view until June 3) must first book an appointment. Then they are guided around the high-ceilinged building by a member of Diakron, walking past scientists conducting research, receptionists signing for deliveries and employees holding meetings on the factory floor.
