STINE DEJA: Cold Sleep
at Tranen Space for Contemporary Art
Right now, approximately 400 human bodies are frozen at -196 degrees Celsius in America and Russia.
They are dead – legally speaking. The hope is to one day defrost and resuscitate them. The procedure is controversial.
Nonetheless, cryopreservation, i.e. preserving people at extreme temperatures below zero, is an area marked by growth. The condition is sometimes referred to as ‘cold sleep’, which is also the title of Stine Deja’s first solo show in Denmark at Tranen.
