Winther's exhibition in Tegnerforbundet is about the feeling of disintegration, when nothing is connected anymore, when the body is foreign, the soul darkened and the colors disappeared. One stands huddled back and hears his words disappear in a quiet echo. Winther has been drawing continuously for a year without knowing anything other than that it will eventually come together, and that it will most likely hurt a little. But of course there is also a touch of dark humor and sarcasm, without moving too far from seriousness, vulnerability and despair. She hopes.
My soul, where are you? Do you hear me? I speak, I call you - are you there? I have returned, I am here again. I have shaken the dust of all the lands from my feet, and I have come to you, I am with you. After long years of long wandering, I have come to you again. Should I tell you everything I have seen, experienced, and drunk in? Or do you want to hear about all the noise of life and the world. ” - Gustav Jung
The works mainly consist of drawings: A performance will be shown at the opening.
