The exhibition (30 January–7 July 2019) features installations co-created by the three artist friends and colleagues, a video piece, as well as an overview of each artist’s recent work.
The title of the exhibition refers to the 1976 cult film by Nicolas Roeg, The Man Who Fell to Earth starring David Bowie. The film’s themes – ecological crisis, xenophobia and ubiquitous commercialism – are more topical today than ever. The trio share their observations on the sad state of the world through a veil of absurdist humour and playful performativity. The exhibition is a co-production between Denmark’s Holstebro Kunstmuseum, Germany’s Stade Museum and EMMA.
