Time Travel Aarhus – A photo exhibition
‘Time Travel Aarhus’- A photo exhibition 3/2-26/3 2015, Musikhuset Aarhus, Foyeren
Ripudaman Singh has created a photo exhibition ‘Time Travel Aarhus’ in which he has blended the ‘new Aarhus’ with the Aarhus of the past. In each exhibit the old picture is from a public database and the new picture is taken between 2013-2014. The exhibition will give the audience an opportunity to travel in time and experience how life has changed/not changed over the years, and experience how the streets, buildings and other landmarks have bore the brunt of time. Even though this will be of special interest to the residents of Aarhus, the exhibits will also intrigue those who are new to the city and offer them to explore these transitions.
The way the pictures are blended is also intentional. The intention is to reflect some kind of communication between the two eras. A man and a woman from two different time periods, 108 years apart, walking on the same street and looking at each other is an example that one can see in the picture from Jægergaardsgade. The fuzzy border between the old and the new pictures presents a fluid transition between time zones – what is new will become old one day.
Time travel has always fascinated mankind. The desire to reach in the past and observe it with the eyes of the present is something that drives that desire. ‘Time Travel Aarhus’ gives the audience a tool to seek that desire.
