Dr. Jornís Institute of Artistic Disturbance

27 June - 2 November 2014

Dr. Jornís Institute welcomed children and adults to a spectacular and creative world filled with amusement and experiments. The institute opened the secret chambers of Museum Jorn that normally arenít accessible for the public: Asger Jornís art collection, his private library, the letter archives and the museumís vast collection of manuscripts and artbooks.


The exhibition showed various press clippings and how Jornís works were received. It also showed Jornís private pallet and the books he read. Dr. Jornís Institute was arranged in different zones of activities, where visitors alone or together with others could explore the art of Asger Jorn, his techniques and the story of one the greatest Nordic artists from the last century. Every day had new activities and a large studio where you could try out different artistic techniques.

Background
Dr. Jornís Institute presented a unique insight into the art of Jorn and took the audience behind the scenes of the museum. It was possible to interact with the staff, different scholars and artists. Dr. Jornís Institute was inspired by Asger Jornís ďScandinavian Institute of Comparative VandalismĒ (SICV). An ambitious and never finalized research project which purpose was to tell the story of 10.000 years Nordic folk art in a series of books. The project was based on 26.000 photos that Jorn commissioned from the French photographer Gťrard Franceschi in the beginning of the 1960íties.

New research
The formation of Dr. Jornís Institute of Artistic Disturbance resurrected (SICV) as the Scandinavian Institute of Contemporary Comparative Vandalism (SICCV). The three artists Ellef Prestsśter, Michael Murtaugh and Nicolas Malevť, had undertaken the enormous task of exploring the possibilities of a digitalization of the gigantic photo archive that resides at Museum Jorn.
