Press release, march 2018
This Thursday 18:30 (Doors open 18.00 - please be on time)⎥U R INVITED
We hope to see you at the second pro temp. event Showpiece this Thursday 22 March 2018 18.00 at Galleri Nicolai Wallner. Doors open at 18:00 and the show starts at 18:30. Doors will be closed for the duration of the show (15 minutes) so please be on time to experience the actual Showpiece.
Showpiece is our second 24 hour curatorial experiment.
Showpiece is an exhibition in motion presenting the artworks within the structural framework of a somewhat performative presentation. pro temp. is interested in exploring how it becomes increasingly more difficult to distinguish between an artist and their piece and the relationship between them. The show is therefore an experiment in exposure and what it means to be exposed as artwork and artist simultaneously. The exhibition will have three phases: pre show, show and post show. The show utilises the use of sound, interactive pieces and the personal and physical presentation of artworks. This curatorial format is a response to frameworks of time and an equal placing of artist and the relation to their work.
For one evening, pro temp. will introduce the new to the established, exhibiting emerging artists at Galleri Nicolai Wallner. The exhibition is a temporary experiment replacing regular emptiness with moments of artistic collaborations and new vibrations.
The exhibition will run only for the evening 18:00 - 20:00 and will introduce a group of 18 artists.
Frederik Albrecht & Adrian Lopez (DK/ES), Sara Annsofidotter (SE), Tina Austen (DK), Dina Isaeus-Berlin (SE), Philipp Grünewald (DE), Mads Kristian Frøslev (DK), Alma Heikkilä (FI), Markus Jäntti (FI), Malthe Møhr Johnsen (DK), Mads Juel (DK), Louise Haugaard Jørgensen (DK), Dawoon Kim (KR), Albert Løje & Masha Ovchavora (DK/RU), Björn Mortensen (NO), Lasse Bruun (DK) and Lotte Rose Kjær Skau (DK).
We hope to see you!

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.
