SMK (National Gallery of Denmark)
Curated by Marianne Torp
Ed Atkins’ new video project, Safe Conduct, is a live-action and CGI burlesque of airport security instruction videos set to Ravel’s Bolero: A carousel of protocol, rendered bodies, abattoirs and metal detectors.
In the exhibition Ed Atkins. Safe Conduct you can experience a video installation by the British artist Ed Atkins, created specifically for x-rummet, the SMK’s venue for contemporary art.
Atkins has had solo exhibitions at the Tate Britain, the Chisenhale Gallery, MoMA PS1, the Serpentine Gallery, Palais de Tokyo, and Kunsthalle Zürich.
