THE EXHIBITION "HEY PANOPTICON! HEY ASYMMETRY!" FEATURES NEW WORKS BY HENRIK OLESEN, CREATED IN RESPONSE TO THE SPECIFIC ARCHITECTURE OF SCHINKEL PAVILLON AS A PANOPTIC PLATFORM. HENRIK OLESEN'S WORK HAS LONG ADDRESSED SUBCULTURAL VISUAL CODES, DEPLOYING THEM TO DEMARCATE THE UBIQUITOUS GAZE OF THE PUBLIC. TAKING SCHINKEL PAVILLON'S 360-DEGREE VIEW AS A STARTING POINT, THE WORKS EXPLORE THE BLURRING BOUNDARIES BETWEEN THE INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR IN A SOCIETY THAT INCREASINGLY REQUIRES PEOPLE TO REVEAL PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT WHILST AT THE SAME TIME SANCTIONING THAT WHICH FALLS OUTSIDE THE NORM.
