We are living in a time where Denmark faces up to 30 covid-19 related deaths daily and illness is on everybody mind 24/7. In Necromonicon Kirkegaard takes a step closer to examine different causes of death, revealing a terrifying beauty.

The work consists of a selection of forensic microscopies of eight different causes of death that Kirkegaard has edited into eight abstract square pictures in black and white. Six sound files play back sound recordings of six different types of calliphoridae (blow flies) that he held still in front of a microphone, thus revealing each calliphoridae’s the unique wing frequency and tone.Together, all six characteristic calliphoridae form a dissonant swarming chord.

Experience the online presentation on the website of Galleri Tom Christoffersen.
