'The Order and the Method' is based on a specific sequence of the film, in which postcards are grouped in different categories (monuments, the middle age, transport, animals, industry, etc) and showed one by one in one long sequence shot. The postcards exhibited here were bought on the internet. The images correspond with the list of pictures shown or mentioned in the film. The order of the presentation follow the consecutive order in which the postcards arrived in the mail, and not the sequence they appear in the film. The reverse of each card contains the exact layout and notes from the original postcards, and also the script extracted from the film. These passages from the film refer to the messages sent to the wives.
'POST' is an exhibition series for which the invited artists send the works and materials by regular mail. The staff at Kunsthal Charlottenborg is responsible for installing the exhibition following the artist's enclosed instructions. The exhibition series started 1 February 2013. POST is curated by Jacob Fabricius, director of Kunsthal Charlottenborg.
'The Order and the Method' is on show from 2 to 30 November 2013.
