    Kunsthal Charlottenborg

    Copenhagen - Red Light Green Light (In the Realm of the Senses)

    Copenhagen

    Denmark

    This summer, Kunsthal Charlottenborg presents an exhibition that moves out of the galleries and on to selected locations in the city of Copenhagen. Intensity and intimacy are in focus, and audience can look forward to great art experiences when a number of internationally leading video and performance artists create works for the city’s scenic spaces and halls.

    The contemporary world is, some say, marked by a predominant feeling of stress or anxiety. At state of being that is simultaneously angst filled and driven by desire, controlled by a protocol for how to live and perform in our contemporaneity. The result is tension, a dramatic hold between two states – pressure and drive. The exhibition Copenhagen - Red Light Green Light (In the Realm of the Senses) takes off from a mixed state of tension, tenderness and lifeforce.

    Suzanne Valadon – model, painter, rebel

    Copenhagen

    Denmark

    It is more than a century since Valadon painted her unapologetic portraits of self-assured women with strong, curvaceous bodies. The Glyptotek’s exhibition Suzanne Valadon – model, painter, rebel presents the contribution the artist made to European art at the beginning of the 20th century with a focus on her agency and business acumen. With their dark hallmark contours and bright colours, Valadon’s works demonstrate wit and boldness in grappling with themes and issues that continue to provoke debate today: female desire, the conflicts of marriage and motherhood, and the way women themselves experience their bodies.

    In this summer’s major solo show at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Jeannette Ehlers forges a spiritual and meditative space that sheds light on Afro-Caribbean relations through large and new installations as well as existing works that combine film, performance and photography. Highlights include a new and central video work based on the mythical figure Moko Jumbie. According to folklores, Moko crossed the Atlantic from West Africa to the Caribbean to protect care of its people.

    Overgaden

    Liesel Burisch: Bring Time

    Copenhagen

    Denmark

    In the evocative installation that the exhibition Bring Time essentially is, Liesel Burisch addresses the transitory space of the pre- and after party, their changeability and potential for indulging the fragile and temporary spaces in which relationships can arise and develop.

    The exhibition’s central video piece Never Stop has been shot at O—Overgaden in the interim construction period between other exhibitions, as well as at bars, clubs and lent homes. In the alternating scenes that compile themselves in a cyclical shape, we meet various performers. Through dialogue and dance they reveal moments from the intimate slowness of party preparations, the freedom and collectivity inherent in the dancing and the conversations common at after parties. The movements and fragmented conversations blend with an electronic score that slowly and hypnotically fills up the exhibition space. The video is mounted on extensive scaffolding. The construction appears non-permanent something that can be quickly de- and re-constructed; temporary, just like the pre- and after party.

    Monia Sander Hej-Mohamed: Heavy Body, Heavenly Body

    Copenhagen

    Denmark

    Monia Sander Haj-Mohamed’s first large solo exhibition, which occupies O—Overgaden’s first floor, appears at first glance as a minimal and quiet universe. But by placing oneself closely in front of the drawings, or putting on the exhibition’s headphones, one is sucked into a deep and intimate interior, where the sense of time, place, and space is abolished, and questions of existence, intimacy, and identity emerge.

    The audience is invited up close when Haj-Mohamed presents for the first time her extensive production of abstract line drawings. A total of 25 unique drawings, placed in hand-carved elm frames, and installed chronologically. The technique, in which a neat maze motif slowly takes shape, has been developed by the artist over several years. Each drawing begins as an intuitive but deeply focused channeling of energy that continues, uninterrupted, until the drawing is finished. For up to 16 hours at a time, Haj-Mohamed lets a pencil stroke move across a piece of paper, letting it stray and branch off, only to eventually meet itself again, creating a complete form. All 25 exhibited drawings have been created over a period of three years in which grief, transformation, and trauma healing have weighed heavily in the artist’s life. The drawings function as organic meditations on life – on the finished and the unfinished. Each drawing can be seen as an inner journey through life.

    Ursula Reuter Christiansen & Adam Christensen: You Might Wanna Stay Over

    Copenhagen

    Denmark

    During the summer of 2022, Adam Christensen and Ursula Reuter Christiansen will be brought together in a cross-generational and dialogue-based exhibition at Rønnebæksholm. The home as space and sound is the theme of this summer exhibition, where a number of works by the two renowned artists are put together for the first time. The theme is close to Rønnebæksholm's space. The manor was a home until well into the 1990s. The chandelier, the fireplaces, the building's garden hall and corner rooms testify to this. For the last 700 years, Rønnebæksholm has been home to many; the nobility, the upper class and the tenants. Among the most prominent were, of course, NFS Grundtvig, Marie Toft and the progressive and feminist author Mathilde Fibiger, who housed the couple for a period.

    Copenhagen

    Denmark

    “The figures in my paintings often feel like an extension of myself, and I want the characters in these paintings to be seen with kindness, because they are trying their best. My journey to accepting myself is embedded in the mystery of these characters, and my goal is to help the characters feel so comfortable with themselves that they stop apologizing. While working on this exhibition, I went through a lot of personal changes, and I see these paintings as a celebration of the independence I've earned along the way.“ - Grace Metzler, New York, 2022

    Naturally Selected, 13 paintings, feels like a celebration of real life; not idealized, or easy, but life lived - beautiful, mundane, mysterious, and unpredictable.

    Ivan Pérard: Impossibility of Peace in the Brain of the Bullied

    Copenhagen

    Denmark

    "From i was 9 to when i was 13 I got beaten up every day. By 3 boys from my class. It developed into a weird kinda-like stockholm syndrome, that I became the one who had to run, until they caught me, kicked, beat, sat on my arms and humiliated me, whatever they wanted. You can probably imagine, years. Protected by society in Ebeltoft. - This exhibition starts from my desire for a Protector, an omnipotent and fair weapon, for mine and everyone's safety, against them. I know cultivating that type of overlord is misunderstood and wrong. We can’t have that good of a time with Quantum AI carrying miniguns, rocket launchers and railguns in daily life. But I wish. Unfortunately it’s a reflected wish. Therefore here: Self-defense systems for domestic spaces." - Ivan Pérard

    Andersen's

    Jorge Galindo: Ornemental

    Copenhagen

    Denmark

    Andersen's is pleased to present Jorge Galindo's first solo exhibition - Ornemental - in the gallery and in Denmark. In Ornemental, Jorge Galindo depicts the classic theme of the still life on a monumental scale with a new series of flower paintings.

    Over the past thirty years Galindo has made gestural and expressionistic paintings which often synthesises elements of collage. Using a range of materials, his lush and colourful surfaces are executed in an energetic and sometimes chaotic style.

    Painted onto canvases with a patchwork quality, Galindo's bright and energetic painting process renders his subject in a manner that borders on abstraction. The painted flowers in Ornemental can be perceived as a celebration of life at a difficult time, a steadfast defence of the pleasure of painting, and a form of absolute freedom. Galindo has described his own work as “dirty pop”, but his work still represents the classic theme of still life at a monumental scale, with expressionist and abstract touch.

In this show we are presenting a dialogue between the Danish artist Kirsten Ortwed, the German artist Rosemarie Trockel and the US artist Lawrence Weiner. In the past the artists have crossed paths in various exhibition projects but this is the first time that all three of them is exhibiting together.

    It Might Be Beautiful: The Art Collector Rolf Stenersen

    Oslo

    Norway

    In 1936, the Norwegian financier Rolf Stenersen (1899–1978) donated his first art collection to the City of Oslo. This collection included works by Edvard Munch, as well as by younger Norwegian artists. Thirty-five years later, in 1971, he donated a new collection, this time of more recent European art, to the City of Bergen. Now, for the very first time, Stenersen’s two unique art collections will be displayed together.

    In this exhibition, which will be displayed first at MUNCH and then at KODE in Bergen, we focus on Stenersen as art collector, patron, author, art writer, institution builder and cultural celebrity. What was he like as a person? What motivated him to collect art and then donate not just one, but two collections to the public? Two collections that he had built up with exceptional shrewdness, boldness and passionate enthusiasm. Stenersen! is divided into eight sections, each of which positions Stenersen’s collecting activities within broader contexts such as literature, art, financial investment and other societal factors. From this starting point, we will get closer to Stenersen and shed new light on the collections he gave to the Norwegian public and their unique significance for Norwegian and European art and art history.

    Copenhagen

    Denmark

    The exhibition 'Hissy Fit' by Lea Guldditte Hestelund is a story about motherhood, about fighting to provide care, about breaking down physically as well as mentally, but still continuing. In the exhibition, Guldditte Hestelund lets her personal experiences of becoming a mother and being a caregiver merge with fictional narratives in sculptures and installations that link different connections between health issues, capitalist structures and ecological conditions.

    Here motherhood - the experience of bodily monstrosity, vulnerability and connectedness - becomes the starting point for a study of care-related connections between personal exhaustion, community health and planetary collapse.

    Lene Berg: Fra Far

    Bergen

    Norway

    Bergen Kunsthall is proud to present Lene Berg as the Festival Artist 2022. The Festival Exhibition is considered the most important solo presentation for a Norwegian artist in the country and has been shown each summer since 1953, in parallel to the Bergen International Festival (Festspillene i Bergen). Lene Berg works as an artist and filmmaker and over the past two decades has produced outstanding works that question the way in which images create facts. In the Festival Exhibition, she presents an extensive new project titled Fra Far (From Father), which continues her investigation of current socio-political climates through autobiographical material.

    Berg was nine years old when her father was arrested in Paris in 1975 and imprisoned for the murder of his wife (the artist’s step-mother) Evelyne Zammit. This dramatic childhood experience is the starting point of the project which unfolds in a series of film and audio works, together with scenographic elements. Berg reconstructs her memory of the events and the gaps that exist in her recollection through archival as well as staged film scenes and documents. Confronting harsh autobiographical experiences, the exhibition investigates fundamental questions of guilt, memory, and the collective production of truth.

    To Light, Shadow and Dust

    Berlin

    Germany

    Group exhibition featuring works by: Ignasi Aballí, Elena Damiani, Spencer Finch, Hreinn Friðfinnsson, Sofia Hultén, Eva Löfdahl, Ryan Mrozowski, Sirous Namazi, Frida Orupabo, Michael Schmidt, Stanley Whitney, June Crespo.

    In the titular work Hreinn Fridfinnsson uses thirteen gilded glass plates to provide a stage for the poetic beauty of the immaterial: the gold projection of the inexorably changing daylight on the wall, the wandering shadows, the course of time that can be read from the layers of dust that inevitably gather on the wall objects. The non-hierarchical arrangement of the gold objects follows a principle of seriality and repetition, but does not create a self-referential structure. Fridfinnsson’s work thus represents an antithesis to Sol Lewitt’s demands of the serial artist as formulated in the text accompanying his work "Serial Project, I (ABCD)" (1966). He is not a “clerk cataloguing the results of his premise” but creates beautiful or mysterious objects. The multilayered engagement with seriality and repetition as a complex aesthetic principle forms the key point of departure that brings together the diverse artistic works in this exhibition. Many of the works activate the potential of significance of minimal alterations and subtle changes of state by repetition and share a proximity to Fridfinnsson’s sensibility for the ephemeral, transformability, and discontinuity that seems to subvert the rational logic of clear and simple serial order.

    Jeppe Hein: Who Are You Really?

    Stockholm

    Meet Jeppe Hein in the exhibition “Who are you really?” This summer, the Danish Berlin-based artist will engage the audience in totally new ways. The exhibition takes place around the entire Museum – both indoors and outdoors – and invites you to be a co-creator.

    The extensive project “Jeppe Hein: Who are you really?” is not an exhibition in the traditional sense. Instead of shipping works to Moderna Museet, the entire exhibition was produced on site, interacting with the building, our collection – and our visitors.

    "My artistic practice is about people, physical encounters, dialogue and social interaction. You viewers are an indispensable aspect of my art, and most of my installations can only be experienced if you are there." – Jeppe Hein

    Peter Linde Busk: Solaris

    Skåne

    Sweden

    Wanås Art presents Peter Linde Busk's first outdoor sculpture. The motif is the pumpkin, the shape and the ritual associated with Halloween-interested Linde Busk, but in his version it becomes a white sculpture with the title Solaris , over 4 meters in diameter and as big as a room to enter. The newly produced work is shown together with a exhibition of his paintings, reliefs, graphics and collages, from 2015 onwards, which provide insight into a teeming multifaceted artistry that has attracted international attention.

    Material exploration is a central part of Linde Busk's practice and using varied processes and media together with the desire to constantly learn new things is a driving force in the work with new works of art. For almost two years, he has developed recipes, materials and technology to make the sculpture into pulp, a work combined with ever-present artistic design issues. He has opted out of traditional materials such as bronze and the usual substitutes fiberglass or epoxy materials such as resin, the latter materials which age poorly and have all the environmental problems of plastic. The processed surface is recognisable from his other works of art, he mixes the imaginative and the abstract, and often one or more characters are seen in the center against a condensed, processed background.

    William Scott and Sandra Mujinga explore alternative worlds in their respective artistic practices; Scott through his richly detailed, painterly work and Mujinga through her digital processes that are part of a multifaceted practice involving sculpture, installation, performance and electronic music – often combined in a single work.

    Both artists raise important questions concerning the body, identity and representation through their work. These questions are linked to deeper investigations surrounding visibility and belonging – asking us which spaces we belong to, and which spaces we have the possibility to access through utopian thinking and world-building.

Muholi came to prominence in the early 2000s with photographs that tells the stories of black lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex lives in South Africa. In the exhibition at GL STRAND more than 100 photographs are brought together to present the full breadth of Muholi’s career to date, from their very first body of work Only Half the Picture, to their on-going series Somnyama Ngonyama. These works challenge dominant ideologies and representations, presenting the participants in their photographs as fellow human beings bravely existing in the face of prejudice, intolerance and often violence.

    Annika Elisabeth von Hausswolff: Alternative Secrecy

    Malmö

    Sweden

    “Alternative Secrecy” presents some seventy works covering Annika Elisabeth von Hausswolff’s entire career, from her first exhibition and studies at Konstfack, University of Arts, Crafts and Design, in the early 1990s, via the Venice Biennale in 1999, to her enamel and acrylic glass series created in recent years.

    Annika Elisabeth von Hausswolff (b. 1967) belongs to a generation of Swedish artists who emerged in the early 1990s under the visual and theoretical influence of postmodernist art. Today, von Hausswolff’s practice is often associated with her early works inspired by crime scene photography, with immobile bodies in various situations. The same questions are triggered in Annika Elisabeth von Hausswolff’s latest series, “Oh Mother, What Have You Done” (2019-2020). These pictures of handcuffed women have been collected by the artist during many years. The images were created by scanning, dithering, and transferring documentary photographs onto plexiglass with UV ink. The artist then applied oil paint to the reverse side, transforming them into unique objects. The works are puzzling and set our thoughts spinning.

Without actually being political the works relate to society at large by pointing to the complexity of human existence, to name just an example. The artists in the exhibition are all trying to portray what it feels like to be human in a time of flux.

    Stitches and Threads is an exhibition of works by contemporary Icelandic artists who embroider or make use of the needle and thread as a tool in their art. They either look to the past to work with the heritage of the craftsmanship and its tradition, or employ the needle as a tool in progressive experiments with other media. The exhibition includes new and recent works by a varied group of artists, both representatives of the younger generation, and artists who have made their mark on the Icelandic art scene. What they all share is that they have lovingly taken to the needle as an important tool in their artistic practices. The works reflect a vast range of subject matter, as they confront social issues alongside the poetic of everyday life and tenderness of nostalgia.

    In this exhibition, Moderna Museet Malmö presents new works by Per Wizén. The pieces were created in the wake of a journey back into the artist’s own childhood that was set off by his discovery of some long-forgotten Disneyland magazines from the 1970s in an attic. Through the lens of popular cultural images, Wizén invites us into some colorful fantasies based on Disney´s versions of Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. The two characters have in common that they confront worlds that lie beyond the known, the illuminated, the rational – worlds of opportunity but also of darkness. As always in Wizén’s complex artistry, these new works are intimately linked with earlier ones, delving deeper into certain themes.

    Mona Hatoum: Revisit

    Stockholm

    Sweden

    Since the early 1990s, Mona Hatoum has been regarded as one of the most important artists of our time. Through installation, sculpture, performance, photography, and video, she consistently explores issues of the familiar and the foreign, home and exile, memory and loss. Her multifaceted body of work plays on the tension between these states, as well as on their shifting boundaries.

    Through alterations in scale and the use of unexpected materials, an object that at first glance seems simply a household utensil can shift its associations to become a threatening tool. Hatoum applies such constantly mutable positions in order to question established truths and perceptions of the world. Her perspective is often that of the individual in relation to institutional structures and to their exercise of violence and power.

    These questions can be traced back to Hatoum’s own experience of exile and alienation, but are nonetheless universal issues of rootlessness, alienation, and loss.

    Landscapes

    Odense

    Denmark

    A sensual journey around Denmark: the sky, the earth, the horizon and the special Nordic light have fascinated artists for generations. The longing for nature - in more or less unspoiled form - runs like a constant stream through Danish art history. The exhibition Landscapes unfolds the motif through an extensive presentation of approx. 100 paintings and photographs from the museum's own collection.

    In the works, the individual artist's special view of the world is expressed. With the golden age painter PC Skovgaard, there is high sky and lush beech trees in the peacefully rounded nature of the idealized Danish landscape. With the Funen painter Johannes Larsen, we get very close to the wildlife - his bird-rich motifs pay homage to nature as a sanctuary. And contemporary artist Trine Søndergaard's razor - sharp photographs capture the moist bark and soft soil in landscapes where man has left his mark. Across centuries of changing views of nature, the exhibition's works of art testify to the constant appeal of nature as a space for contemplation.

    Pierre Huyghe (b. 1962) is one of the most important contemporary artists of our time. His works blur the boundaries between the living and inanimate, fiction and reality, nature, humans and technology.

    In Huyghe’s contingent universe, diverse intelligent life forms – biotic and abiotic – evolving indeterminately, produces continuous changes in their environments. The works are dynamic and modify over time, often exceeding the artist's control.

    For Huyghe the exhibition is not merely a site for viewer experience, but rather an encounter with an immersive, sentient milieu, that perceives, generates new possibilities of alliances between events or things that unfold, indifferent to human presence.
