“Fascinated by places and architecture with an innate historical significance and narrative tension, Dan Stockholm practices a “creative archaeology”, which includes field research and work with various findings. His recent work evolves from what he calls “performative process,” a method that turns the finished piece into a vessel which carries the story of its own making.”
“On November 29th, Matèria in Rome presents Grass is greener: an international exhibition project that brings together two artists working through two fundamental forms of visual art: Giulia Marchi with photography and Magnus Frederik Clausen with painting.”
“Hard core, soft bodies is a collection of videos that reimagine the human form. The 3D hybrid beings, constructed of biological organs and technological prosthetics, stand in a literal ‘grey area’ making familiar sounds and subtle movements. There is an undeniable bizarreness to imagining the inner-workings of our biological bodies, but when cleaned up and stripped of the ‘mess’ a digestive tract earns the same elegance as a single unoccupied contact lens.”
“Intimacy can be found in the warmth of the home and in a meeting between people. It has to do with closeness and familiarity. In today’s hectic disconnected world, one might fear that intimacy is precisely what we are lacking. Confidentiality and communication have been replaced with us staring at our phones, swiping our way through love and replacing vulnerability with “u ok hun?”.“
“Ormston House is proud to present AGORA an exhibition of new works by Jens Ardal and Morten Kromann supported by the Danish Arts Foundation. The artists have worked collaboratively since 2012 and founded their studio complex Kulturdivisionen at a former slaughterhouse in Holstebro in 2016. This will be their first exhibition in Ireland and the second drawing on the concept of the agora following the Extract Solo Art Prize in Copenhagen last year.”
“14.-23. september 2018 løber sjette udgave af Landskrona Foto Festival af stablen på den skånske vestkyst. Over 120 fotografer fra hele verden udstiller under årets festival, og flere af
fotograferne deltager aktivt i festivalen til samtaler om deres kunst.”
“TALE OF AN OCEAN presents the work of 11 contemporary visual artists from Denmark: Sophie Dupont, Jacob Kirkegaard, Oskar Koliander, Rasmus Nilausen, Helene Nymann, Kaspar Oppen Samuelsen & Marie Louise Vittrup, Julie Stavad, Tove Storch, Astrid Svangren and SUPERFLEX.”
“The joint exhibition Perspicuus by Jakob Emdal and Jonas Kasper Jensen presents new works specially developed for the exhibition that is the outcome of a close collaboration between the two Danish artists. By means of photography, installation, sound and painting, the exhibition focuses in particular on the constantly evolving development of different forms of the image in the context of technological progress and historical changes.”
“Patrick Parrish Gallery is pleased to present Don’t Know What Shape I’m In, a solo exhibition of new works by Danish sculptor Carl Emil Jacobsen, curated by Henriette Noermark. In preparation for the exhibition, Noermark has supplied Jacobsen with doctrines which challenged him to approach and relate to his highly tactile, material sculptures in new and unusual ways.”
“Dependency on technology is making our lives vulnerable and precarious. What tools might help expedite shopping mall survivalism? We scan shops for shelter. We twist objects for rescue: waste plastics turn camouflage, natural resources provide energy and we use cosmetics to create new guises. Skins like that of a cephalopod, we taste and see with all our limbs. Glancing at the modified physiology of our fingers, conditioned through swiping and clicking, we wonder, can we re-learn to tie knots and make fires out of tampon tinder?”
"The new works by the Copenhagen-born artist Marie Irmgard (*1976) encompass genres of painting in a coordinate system, which broadly draws on one's self-perception and the perception of nature by mankind between historical reference points such as Diego Velasquez and Cy Twombly. Galerie1214 is displaying a concentrated selection of works for the first time in a solo exhibition in Berlin."
"15 windows is a window exhibition in Malmö curated by the artist-run exhibition space Delfi. Fifteen artists will exhibit in fifteen windows around the city. The windows belong to a travel agency, a bakery and a shoemaker among others."
"In Aestu Solis is the third part of a trilogy of works by Jens Settergren that utilise the tropics as an instance of a (Western) collective imaginary: The tropical cast as a heterotopia comprising both pure idyll, recreational tranquility and certain more uncanny elements."
"During his two-month residency, Javier Tapia (*1976, Chile) developed a walkable, mazelike installation at CAT Cologne. Transparable boards are backdrops for collages of images and photographs. These partitions give multiple views to potential relations between the imagery, allowing space for personal associations."
"Landskrona Foto Festival kan i år fejre femårs jubilæum, når den løber af stablen til september, med det hidtil mest ambitiøse og altomfavnende program. Over 10 dage vil den svenske fotofestival byde på internationale udstillinger, workshops, artist talks, seminarer og folkefest."
