The Third Room

Ebbe Stub Wittrup

Danish artist Ebbe Stub Wittrup works with superstition and the creation of myths, optical illusions and tricks of the mind in his art.

Taking inspiration from psychology, theosophy, gestalt and colour theory, he challenges and disturbs our logical and rational interaction with the world. The exhibition at ARoS will be the artist’s most important solo show yet. 

The publication Ebbe Stub Wittrup – The Third Room is a fully illustrated book presenting a wide range of works by Danish artist Ebbe Stub Wittrup. For the last ten years Wittrup has worked with superstition and the creation of myths, optical illusions and tricks of the mind in his art. Taking inspiration from psychology, theosophy, gestalt and colour theory, he challenges and disturbs our logical and rational interaction with the world. The exhibition at ARoS will be the artist’s most important solo show yet. It includes a broad spectrum of works – film, slide, sculpture and photography – from earlier as well as brand new series of work. The publication consists of a preface, an introduction to the exhibition by curator Maria Kappel Blegvad and a text written by the acknowledged American philosopher Graham Harman, world famous for his object-oriented theories on ‘Speculative Realism’, a short biography and a list of works.
