The art group The Truth Behind Small (Maya Peitersen and Linda Bjørnskov) has created the installation Memory of Violence as a site-specific piece for Maya Peitersen’s mobile artspace, Dansk Standardpoesi (Danish Standardpoetry), located in the Museumsquare in front of Vejen Artmuseum. The installation was exhibited from July 27th to September 7th, 2014. The Truth Behind Small has, among other artistic endeavours, created the sculpturel artspace Sydhavns Anker in 2012.

 At Memory of Violence, you are placed in the center of The Truth Behind Small’s collected memories of violence. It is seen and sensed through a series of words, cut out in thirteen wooden sculptures of organic shapes. The sculptures are placed on the floor and walls of Dansk Standardpoesi. The inner space of Dansk Standardpoesi is quite narrow (215x215x215/320 cm) and is further condensed by the installation. The density of the space is increased by the emotional effect of the the memories of Peitersen and Bjørnskov…

The exhibition is supported by Statens Kunstfond and Krydsfinér-Handelen.
