Catalyst Arts is proud to present Connecting Body: 7 Days of Practising Transformation and
Preservation in a White Cube, a solo exhibition of new work by Belfast-based Danish artist Lykke
Sønderkær from 28th March to 4th April 2019.

Connecting Body: 7 Days of Practising Transformation and Preservation in a White Cube takes the
form of a time-based exhibition crossing modes of representation between site-specific intervention,
live performance and archival art. Each day for a duration of seven consecutive days, Sønderkær
creates a performance as a ritual bridging the connections between human body and organic
materiality with spatial character of the gallery. Exploring the symbolic idea of Four Elements,
Sønderkær seeks to discover our sensual awareness of the physical world and beyond.

Daily performances are captured, recorded and displayed in the immediate environment alongside the
following ephemeral art to be unfolded in space. As the space accumulates performances and
nourishes a body of archive leading up to the Eighth and final day, the exhibition presents itself as a
state of oneness, preserving all directions of time and encompassing all interconnected frozen
moments and material resonance.

Lykke Sønderkær was born in 1993 in Copenhagen. Always having pursued art, she traveled to
Scotland in 2014 to study Art and Contemporary Practice and Philosophy at Dundee University. She
recently graduated from Ulster University in Fine Art where she was shortlisted for RDS Visual
Awards 2018 for her performance work. Recent shows include solo exhibition at Pollen Studios and
Gallery; group show at MART Gallery, Vaults Art Studio, RDS Dublin and Engine Room Gallery
Belfast.
