Echo Chamber presents new works by the artists Jan Freuchen and Linn Pedersen. An echo chamber refers to a closed system in which the information is self-referential. The exhibition consists of photographs, video and several sculptural pieces that function as different adaptations of the same basic material. This is Freuchen and Pedersen’s first joint exhibition.
