We are pleased to invite you to the first pro temp. show Allow Me to Introduce Myself on 10 October 2017 at 16:00 - 21:00 at Galleri Susanne Ottesen. Allow Me to Introduce Myself is the first group exhibition organised by pro temp.
pro temp. [occupying a position either temporarily or in the absence of something regular or fixed] is a new platform established in 2017. Founded by Anna Clarisse Holck Wæhrens, Isabella Hemmersbach, Jamiee Williams, Julie Sophie Koldby and Sia Hurtigkarl Degel. pro temp. will curate exhibitions by showing emerging artists in gallery spaces such as Galleri Susanne Ottesen, Nicolai Wallner, David Risley and V1 Gallery amongst others. The aim is to give unrepresented artists a temporary place within the established art world, by taking over renowned galleries’ spaces and arranging ultra short exhibitions in between the galleries’ own shows.
Allow me to introduce myself is a first “hi” from pro temp. and the invited artists. The title refers to the humble journey that emerging artists have to take when establishing themselves as artists, through experience, handshakes and attendance.
Introducing yourself as an emerging artist requires a definition of a self, and identifying the artist as an individual entity within a larger framework. An introduction in this context can thus be understood as a meeting of minds, bodies, expectations, and definitions as well as world views; within physical structures in time, space and society. Allow me to introduce myself is an exhibition and a manifestation of this starting point. With the self as a common denominator for a group of artists concerned with their bodies, societal structures and ultimately a self.
For one evening, pro temp. will introduce the new to the established, exhibiting emerging artists at Galleri Susanne Ottesen. The exhibition is a temporary experiment replacing regular emptiness with moments of artistic collaborations and new vibrations.
Allow me to introduce myself is the first exhibition by pro temp. - please allow us to introduce ourselves.
The exhibition will introduce a group of 15 artists: Aske Thiberg, Casper-Malte Augusta, Esben Holk, Filip Vest, Iben Zorn, Isabella Hemmersbach, Julie Falk, Julie Sophie Koldby, Katrine Bobek, Mads Lindberg, Mikkel Rundin, Nour Fog, Simin Stine Ramezanali & Viktor Henderson.
pro temp. is in collaboration with artist Laurits Gulløv publishing an artistic publication during the exhibition period. The publication is an ultra temporary and performative experiment where Laurits Gulløv is creating a piece with inspiration from the title of the show. This is created as a trace of a glimpse of the exhibition by pro temp. Reading by Iben Zorn at 17:30 and performance by Casper-Malte Augusta at 19:00.
