Pressemeddelelse, august 2019

Time Crush viser værker af Gray Wielebinski, Rowland Hill og Dyveke Bredsdorff, der på hver deres måde arbejder med identitetsskabelse og dét at performe køn, politik, krop og følelser. Ud over de individuelle værker, inviterer kunstnerne med et fælles værk af lyd og billeder beskueren ind i en bredere historisk samtale om informationsprivilegier og herskende former for mediering.

Med fotoserierne Eyes Eyes, Eyes Eyes (Orlando) og Eyes Eyes (Pearl Earring) portrætterer Dyveke Bredsdorff forskellige intime aspekter af queerness og drag. I Eyes Eyes møder vi små dryp af hverdagshengivenhed i form af sort/hvid 35mm fotografier. Eyes Eyes (Orlando), en serie af 120mm pinhole fotografier refererer en ønsket fortid gennem historisk drag, og cyantopierne Eyes Eyes (Pearl Earring) viser aftryk af kostumedele.

Rowland Hills videoværk Interesting Times, som består af en række Eurodance mix-numre og DJ-sæt fra 1990’erne, præsenterer en ildevarslende læsning af Storbritanniens nuværende forhold til EU. Eurodance-genren, som opstod i kølvandet på Berlinmurens fald, er karakteriseret ved en lyrisk optimisme sammensat med en emotionelt ladet moltone, samples af stormskyer samt beats der antyder både eufori og nødsituation. Interesting Times synes at pege på et potentielt fællesskab og samvær gennem dans mens den italesætter den stemning af tvivl og håb, der kendetegner den nuværende europæiske politiske krise.

Gray Wielebinskis tekstilskulpturer- og collager undersøger køn, erfaringer og seksualitet, og hvordan disse kategoriseringer krydser andre magt- og identitetsstrukturer. Som trans/non-binær er værkerne en forlængelse af Grays egen undersøgelse af deres forhold til køn, krop og socialisering, især ambivalensen omkring maskulinitetsmarkører. Med sin praksis inviterer Gray os til at beskæftige os med de realiteter og kontekster som vi lever i, samtidig med at lege med tanker om og repræsentationer af alternativer.

Udstillingen bindes sammen af en real-time projektion af en fælles YouTube fan mix playliste, der kan ses som en invitation ind i gruppens research og samtale om de emner der optager dem: både private og offentlige arkiver, repræsentationer af barndom og identitetsmarkører, fan fiction og dragkostumer.

Udstillingen er gjort mulig med støtte fra Statens Kunstfond og Odense Kommunes Kulturpulje.

Fernisering: Fredag d. 6. september, kl. 18-21 | Facebook event
Udstillingsperiode: D. 6.-22. september 2019.
Åbningstider: Søndage (d. 8., 15. og 22. september), kl. 12-15 (og efter aftale).

Rowland Hill (f. 1989, Leicester, UK) har base i Manchester og arbejder med performance, video, tekst og lyd. Hill har en baggrund i teater og musik og bruger ofte denne i sin kunstneriske praksis til at undersøge forskellige former for gestik og koreografiske regimer i samarbejde med komponister, tolke og dansere. Hun har præsenteret sit arbejde på en række udstillingsplatforme herunder Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center, ICA (London), Raven Row (London), Horse Hospital (London), Splendor (Amsterdam), Fracto Film Encounter (Berlin), Whitworth Art Gallery (Manchester), Kgnm Fest (Köln), Flux Factory (NYC) og The Geffen Contemporary på MOCA (LA).

Press Release, August 2019

Time Crush shows works by Gray Wielebinski, Rowland Hill and Dyveke Bredsdorff, who each work with identity formation and performativity related to gender, politics and emotions. In addition to their individual works, the show includes a collaborative piece that invites the viewer into a broader historical conversation about information privileges and prevailing forms of mediation.

The three photo series Eyes Eyes, Eyes Eyes (Orlando) and Eyes Eyes (Pearl Earring) by Dyveke Bredsdorff portray different aspects of queerness and drag. In Eyes Eyes we get a glimpse into intimate moments of everyday affection in the form of black and white 35mm photographs. Eyes Eyes (Orlando), a series of 120mm pinhole photographs, refers to a desired past through the reference to historical drag, and the cyanotypes Eyes Eyes (Pearl Earring) show prints of costume parts.

Interesting Times by Rowland Hill presents a portentous reading of Britain’s current relationship with the European Union project in the form of a 1990s Eurodance mix-track, adapted for Time Crush into a video piece. Emerging in the aftermath of the Berlin Wall, this musical genre is noted for its lyrical optimism coupled with an emotively charged minor key, storm cloud samples and beats that suggest states of both euphoria and emergency. Interesting Times initiates a potential for togetherness through dance whilst appearing to reference the present political crisis in an unsettling blend of doubt and hopefulness.

Gray Wielebinski's textile sculptures and collages examine gender, experience and sexuality, and how these categorizations intersect with other power and identity structures. As trans/non-binary, the work is an extension of Gray's own study of their relationship to gender, body and socialization, specifically about ambivalent relationships to masculinity. Gray invites us to deal with the realities and contexts in which we live, while at the same time imagining and proposing alternatives, even if it’s just in our imaginations.

A collaborative YouTube fan mix playlist playing real time in the exhibition space can be seen as an invitation into the group's research and conversation about the topics that occupy them; both private and public archives, representations of childhood and identity, fan fiction and costumes.

The exhibition is made possible with kind support from The Danish Art Council and Odense Municipality.

Opening: Friday September 6, from 6pm-9pm | Facebook event
Exhibition period: September 6-22 2019.
Opening hours: Sundays (September 8, 15, and 22), from 12-3 pm (and by appointment).
