Press release, March 2019
SIRIN Copenhagen is thrilled to announce the beginning of a new chapter.
After several years of attracting local and international audience into its cozy space filled with contemporary design, independent publications and handcrafted items, SIRIN is now taking a step forward to reestablish itself as a contemporary art gallery. Moving away from the business environment of commercial design and sidestepping the traditional “white cube” gallery style, SIRIN will be posing questions about the relationship between art and design, questions that “classical” structures do not always risk to ask. As a gallery, SIRIN will focus on experimentation and collaboration and test the limits of what functional objects are traditionally expected to express through their form.
On Friday, the 15th of March SIRIN will be hosting its first art exhibition “Form / Function Be One” featuring five artists with different backgrounds, showcasing their work through various artistic mediums:
Nathaniel Cary, a multidisciplinary artist attempting to find meaning and emotion in the things surrounding us. Mette Hammer Juhl, a visual artist investigating the relations of contemporary boredom, anxiety, and technological stimulus. Alejandro Urrutia, creating sculptures to reinterpret and transgress the rules of architecture. Joakim Almroth, examining what’s important and beautiful by redefining, recycling and reusing materials. Valerie Collart, exploring relationships between photography and objects.
Throughout the exhibition, the artists will take us into their creative realm, where thoughts and ideas come in the form of mirror-like sculptures, ceramic lighting objects, and cat scratching poles.
Exhibition period: March 15 - April 23, 2019.
