HANGAR 23, air base Karup

Moving Horizon is a site-specific public commission located in Hangar 23, Air Base Karup developed and implemented in 2016/ 17 for the Ministry of Defence’s property agency.

“Landscape is a very important theme for Squadron 723, so it is our wish that the artistic decoration should take its cue from this theme, but in a spatial and surface-related treatment that can create an atmosphere in the arrival and canteen area.” 

The material for the work Moving Horizon has been gathered on journeys to Iceland and Greenland in the summer of 2016. The landscapes have been experienced and explored in a photographic process by zooming in on structures, surfaces, colours and lines.

Plants from the flower valley in Tasiilaq in East Greenland have been picked, pressed and subsequently printed on silk and wool in a manual dying process, later to form part of cloth fragments in the photomontage ‘Nature Tales’.

Moving Horizon has been created for Squadron 723 and Hangar 23. The work takes its starting point in specific places in the north and south where the squadron operates physically, and relates to the scale and spatial potential of the building.

Black-and-white photomontages, transparent colour compositions and graphic images are integrated on staggered glass panels and walls in the building. When they overlap and interfere with one another, new spatial compositions and snapshot-like images are created – a poetic device that creates contrast with the architecture and variation in Hangar 23.
