Precious Metals

Even if you don’t realize it, you are a part of a living world. As we humans digitize our daily lives more and more, we begin to live in the belief that we have somehow removed ourselves from nature, risen above it. But the silicon, the metal and the plastic that create our digital fantasy world is not apart from nature, it is part of it. Far from escaping nature, we are only shaping it, like we have always done. Forecast is a living space, a digital organic experience, which moves and changes along with the visitor. The forest, in pixels and light, is a construction, at the same time it is living matter, just like the audience experiencing it.

Forecast is produced by Precious Metals, an experimental production house based in Viborg Denmark, which focuses on ways to create new experiences in narrative fiction.

Oden til Kloden

Pernille Kjær, Sofie Birch, Astrid Fabrin


Kai Oke is an art collective consisting of 2 sound artists and 1 animator creating mesmerizing installation pieces using animation and sound. The installation celebrates the earth and the life that evolved here.

The idea came out of a long conversation about how we humans relate to nature and each other. How can we, through art, contribute with a peaceful, almost transparent comment, and encourage people to slow down and enjoy what is already here?
With a simple and immediate expression, Oden til kloden creates a direct way to observe what life on earth is in its essence; birth and decay, dark and light, repetition and mutation.

Michelle and Uri Kranot

NOTHING HAPPENS delivers an exceptional cinematic VR experience which questions the role of the spectator, by inviting the individual to participate in an event. VR allows us to choose our perspective, allows us to become completely absorbed in the unique atmosphere. The project explores a different kind of narrative, a new way of being in a painting.

NOTHING HAPPENS is produced by Danske Tegnefilm with support from the Danish Film Institute, the West Danish Film Fund, CNC and the Animation Workshop. The installation is created in collaboration with Sara Topsøe-Jensen, Carte Blanche. Michelle and Uri Kranot are renowned international artists based in Viborg. They have been honored with the top industry awards for their work, including multiple prizes at Annecy International Animation Film Festival, an Oscar® Academy Award Shortlist and the Danish StatensKunstfond award for the performing arts. In recent years, the Kranots have focused on collaborative cross media projects.

Rieko Ouchi

A beautiful girl often appears in Japanese animation, predominantly as a very sexual image. Media, animation, games, manga, are enjoyed and consumed as sexual entertainment. In this work, I wish to examine this. Try to destroy the image and the values it represents.

What / Hvad?

Lars Hemmingsen

What / Hvad? is an exploration of how a body of work is perceived when shown in conflicting spaces and through failed Youtube correspondence. The “I could have done that” statement has certain merit. It was nothing, became something, and ended as something else.

Laws of motion in a cartoon landscape // Andy Holden, curated by Juliana Engberg

Place: Det gamle Rådhus  Stænderpladsen, 8800 Viborg.
When: September 10th – October 22nd

Mixing critical theory and conspiracy theory, oscillating between historical fact and bombastic speculation, each idea flowing into the next with the logic of a cartoon.


We are more dimensional // Michael Stumpf, curated by the common guild

Place: Viborg Kunsthal, Riddergade 8800 Viborg.
When: September 15th – October 8th

Stumpf  re-animates  sources from the past, including the history and geology of Viborg, using animation and technological and cultural theory, to explore the ʻnowʼ and possibilities of a ‘then’. With the proposition of sculpture as augmented reality.
