“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?”
“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.”
"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in a coordinate system, which broadly draws on one's self-perception and the perception of nature by mankind between historical reference points such as Diego Velasquez and Cy Twombly.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."
"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."
