Henrik Plenge Jakobsen belongs to the 1990’s generation group of artists who moved the art out of museums and galleries - out among people, and into public spaces. He is part of the group of international artists who were enrolled in the ”relational aesthetics” theory, which deals with the potential of art to create social relations. Plenge Jakobsen works with sculpture, installation and performance art, alone and in collaboration with others, and he has a long line of exhibitions behind him in museums and other exhibition venues in Denmark and abroad.
The exhibition Capital takes place both indoors and outdoors. The ground floor of the museum forms the base of the exhibition, which then moves into Roskilde city with posters, engaging performances, sculptural interventions and so on. Important societal institutions, such as the school, police station and church, form the basis of this exhibition. A guide including a city map tells of the whereabouts of the works while QR codes placed next to the works explain their meaning.
