Bonamatic (DK)

Bonamatic is named after the coffee machine Bravilor Bonamat which is a widely distributed institutional model. Bonamatic is focused on how objects of all kinds are conceivable as a kind of producing machines, that connect with each other in larger assemblages and produce effects not so much because of the artist but essentially via the agency of the art objects themselves.

Jørgen Fog (DK)

Jørgen Fog's works intervene in space via objects that are not automatically identified with art, often a world of half-forgotten, lost or otherwise inconspicuous artifacts. They often involve an awareness of spaces or places that no longer exists, or that exists only by virtue of the work's reconstruction. The works interrupt their immediate appearance as fragments, and in this way, the works consistently produce their own reality out of the familiar.

Jørgen Fog holds an MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Arts. He lives and works in Copenhagen.

Kristoffer Ørum (DK)

Kristoffer Ørum's works demonstrates an ongoing research in alternative structures, often combining diverse fields like biology, power and semiotics in medias like 3D print, video, powerpoint presentations and ceramics. The works of Kristoffer Ørum are in a constant investigation of, and exchange with, the analogue and digital spaces that we are daily navigating through. The mechanic as a format for both production and display runs as a common aspect through Ørum's works.

Jonas Georg Christensen & Peter Olsen (DK)

Jonas Georg Christensen and Peter Olsen have worked with artistic interventions in the form of subtle paintings on building facades. They work on anonymous industrial architecture, such as warehouses, sports centres and factory buildings, the site-specific interventions being based on both the surrounding environment, and the design, colors and materials of the buildings. The strategy proposes new possibilities of visual art in the public space today, where they differ in essence from e.g. the invasive manifestations of graffiti, working more with a kind of visual assimilation that reads the anonymous architecture, and cool-critically corrects in an overall interpretation of place and space.

Jonas Georg Christensen and Peter Olsen are both graduates from Jutland Art Academy.

Per Lunde Jørgensen (DK)

A main question in Per Lunde Jørgensen’s works is how subjectivity is formatted in a culture of prefabricated solutions and products. He often uses techniques of appropriation and assemblage to investigate preowned products by collecting, dismantling and reassembling them in new configurations or by presenting them in other spaces. His recent works are based on upholstery fabrics from office chairs collected from private homes, and the transformation of these mass- produced objects make them fluctuate between familiarity and abstraction and raises questions about ownership, production and consumption as part of the art experience itself.

Per Lunde Jørgensen holds an MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He lives and works in Copenhagen.

Kristine Kemp (DK)

Kristine Kemp works with sculpture and photography that draws on surrealism, appropriation art and feminism. This delineation, however, appears in an often delicately installed conceptual balance, where she deconstructs these starting points with an attention directed towards how subjectivity is established purely linguistically, visually and temporally. This is evident, for example, in her often humorous play with form and appearance, and encourages the viewer to swing between different readings and perceptions, as the critic Lars Bang Larsen reviews.

Kristine Kemp studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen and at The Slade School of Fine Art. She lives and works in Denmark.
