“Jump off a Table and Miss the Ground,” a solo exhibition by Stefan Saffer (AP Faculty) opens at The Karen Blixen Museum on August 28th.
“The idea behind this project was to bring a physical part of the surroundings from Blixen’s farm in Africa to her home in Rungsted, and in so doing to bridge the two worlds in a concrete manner in order to raise questions of cultural belonging and estrangement.
However, Saffer and The Karen Blixen Museum were soon to realize that the original project, the dirt road, for security reasons would be very difficult to realize, and by the beginning of 2013 a 1:1 realization was finally given up. Yet, this is not the end of the story. As Saffer over the course of three years has developed even deeper into his project, it has changed and grown in new directions. He has gathered material, reflections and new inspirations during the long time of dynamic exchange with Blixen’s writing and The Karen Blixen Museum, and on this background Saffer has conceived a new exhibition, JUMP OFF A TABLE AND MISS THE GROUND, which poetically tells the story of the transformation of Strandvejen – and through this the stories of the sometimes blurry boundaries between fiction and reality; dreams and their realization.”
The show runs through September 22nd.
