CPH:DOX and the Swedish pop singer invite the audience to Kunsthal Charlottenborg’s opening night with a film, album premiere, mini-concert & DJ set.
“This is the hardest thing I have ever done. One so many levels.”
Those are the opening lines of the press release for Jenny Wilson’s forthcoming album ‘Exorcism’. A deeply personal and autobiographical album that deals with abuse, resonating with the current #metoo movement.
“Wash away what hurt me”
In the press release, Jenny further reveals her doubts as to whether she should speak up or not about her experiences. She could “not tell”, but she had to say:
“I wanted to take back what I lost. I wanted to wash away what hurt me.” The result of that process is the album ‘Exorcism’, released on March 23. For the occasion, Jenny and CPH:DOX invite the audience to a special opening night of Kunsthal Charlottenborg, the festival’s new centre, on March 15.
There, two short films from this year’s CPH:DOX programme will prime the audience for an exclusive premiere and listening session of Jenny Wilson’s new album, where the singer will also share the thoughts behind each song along the way.
The premiere will be followed by a mini-concert with Jenny and a musician, after which the Swedish pop star will invite everyone to dance during a DJ set in Charlottenborg’s foyer.
