Cisternerne, Cisternerne

A guided tour in Cisternerne typically starts with an introduction outside and above ground, which gives an insight into the place’s exceptional architecture, history, climate and the exhibition that awaits. After the introduction, you will get to experience Cisternerne’s current exhibition on your own.

This year Cisternerne presents an extensive sound installation by artist Taryn Simon. Building everlasting recitations of loss, Start Again the Lament explores how we mourn individually and collectively, considering the anatomy of grief and who we choose to guide us through it.
