“Visual strategies are investigating physical- and mental states of fatigue, exhaustion, overtime, overwork and breakdowns, which are manifested in signs of fragility, transparency, hollowness, broken glass and allusions to anthropomorphic shapes.”
“Danish artist Ruth Campau was born on the Isle of Mors in 1955. Today she lives and works in Copenhagen. The artist examines the fields of painting. By combining paintings on transparent or reflecting surfaces to site specific room installations, Ruth Campau creates highly immersive works of art. Colour, surface and light merge into vibrating and fascinating compositions.”
“The title Knowing Me Knowing You, refers to the well-known ABBA-song of the same name, which for many awakens associations to the idea of the stereotypical Scandinavian. The title also leads us to think about the unavoidable fact that one knows others through oneself.”
“OVERHOVEDET er titlen og det ord, der lyser på et LED display, placeret højt på en central væg i udstillingen. OVERHOVEDET viser endvidere analoge papirværker med maskinelle undertoner, hvor billedflader ses bag glas, hvilket f.eks. gør det muligt at placere dem i forskellige second-hand stativer eller holdere.”
“Är människans herravälde över jorden Guds fel, som på den sjätte dagen efter att ha skapat himmel och jord skapade människan, välsignade henne och sa ’Var fruktsamma och föröka er, uppfyll jorden och lägg den under er […]”
“Francis Patrick Brady inviterer til det første event i en 1-år lang udstillingsrække på det kunstnerdrevne galleri Celsius Projects i Malmø, Sverige. ALEA er den første kategori for ‘spil’ og forholder sig til sandsynlighed, tilfældighed, determinisme.”
“The greek word hyper (ˈhyˀbʌˌ-) has often been linked with the vast amount of science-fiction universes. However in latest years the word has increasingly entered our non-fictional vocabulary in many occasions.”
“Animal is a group exhibition curated by Vasli Souza, exploring five different perspectives over the use of animals in today’s photography. The exhibition is not in any means an attempt to cover the whole animal kingdom or the history of animal photography. More so a brief look into how artists in a clever way use animals to raise questions concerning other important topics we as the humanity are facing. With a humorous approach, the human-animal bond takes on a new form.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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?”.“
“Longtang is pleased to open an exhibition by Copenhagen-based artist Philip Pilekjær. Philip Pilekjær's enlarged magazine pages on the walls and floor of Longtang are laid out in a provisional way, yet their motif is the result of various involvements.”
“Ormston House is proud to present AGORA an exhibition of new works by Jens Ardal and Morten Kromann supported by the Danish Arts Foundation.

fotograferne deltager aktivt i festivalen til samtaler om deres kunst.”
“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.”
“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.”

“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."
