PUBLICATIONS 

Ingvar Cronhammer biography out now

Ingvar Cronhammer's biography 'Med Gud i den ene hånd og tvivlen i den anden · Et roadtrip med Ingvar Cronhammer' by Kirsten Jacobsen, published by Politikens Forlag is out now.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
--⁠⠀
⁠⠀
'Den første biografi om og med en af Danmarks mest prisbelønnede og anerkendte kunstnere.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Siden august 2018 har billedhuggeren Ingvar Cronhammar – i sol og regn, mørke og sne – kørt Danmark rundt i sin Audi Q5 sammen med forfatter Kirsten Jacobsen. Undervejs har de talt om hans kraftfulde kunstværker i det offentlige rum – fra Gråsten til Skagen, fra Herning til Rosenhaven ved Fredensborg Slot og det imponerende monumentområde ved Jelling.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
De har kørt gennem landsbyer, hvor rækker af tilgroede, forladte huse i dag – med Cronhammars ord – ”står som halvkvalte skrig og med vinduernes tomme øjne” og gennem svimlende smukke hedestrækninger, hvor kunstneren bliver utilpas ved vindmøllernes skalering i forhold til landskabets naturlige fikspunkter. De har siddet i middelalderkirker og talt om Cronhammars religiøse anfægtelser og det, han kalder sine anelser (læs: inspiration), der kan opstå ud af intet. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Ingvar Cronhammar søger håbet og lyset, men tumler med troen, tvivlen og mørket. Han er svær at overse i det offentlige rum og i kunstcirklerne; men han er normalt meget tilbageholdende og privat. På disse roadtrips og i sit hjem uden for Herning fortæller han for første gang om sig selv og de – hidtil ukendte – barske sider af sin opvækst, der har sat sit aftryk på hans livssyn og kunstværker' - Politikens Forlag⁠

GROUP SHOWS 

Superflex 'One Two Three Swing!' in Desert X AlUla

One Two Three Swing! is a part of the Desert X AlUla from 31st January until 7th March 2020.

Desert X AlUla is organised collaboratively by Desert X and the Royal Commission of AlUla (RCU), the exhibition takes place in the desert of AlUla, an ancient oasis in Saudi Arabia. It is the first site-reponsive exhibition of its kind in Saudi Arabia. The exhibition is a cross-cultural dialogue between artists from Saudi Arabia and its surrounding region and artists from previous iterations of Desert X in California, taking its cues from the extraordinary landscape and historical significance of AlUla.
 
One Two Three Swing!
To exist in a global economy is to be in constant swing; periods of intense flux are interrupted by moments of sudden paralysis. These movements are causal, and capital connects us all, for better or worse. But perhaps we can harness this movement ourselves. Comprised of several sets of three-seated swings conjoined by a zig-zagging orange support, One Two Three Swing! invites its users to activate the socially transformative potential of collective movement, challenging society’s apathy towards the political, environmental and economic crises of our age. The multi-user swing acts as a human- powered pendulum, converting energy into movement that is almost flight: rocking, moving, propelling backward and forward with increasing momentum in a process of ever shifting equilibrium and play.

The swing’s users must utilize the forces of gravity through coordinated pushings and pullings, until everyone moves into full swing together. In this playful moment, the potential energy of group movement is released. Perhaps it is possible, then, to shift the impact of our collective action to achieve a different kind of global momentum, and utilize the act of swinging together as a means of social and political transformation. First installed at the Tate Modern Turbine Hall in 2017, various site-specific installations of the swing-set continue to be created on a great diversity of contexts, such as AlUla in Saudi Arabia, the DMZ area in South Korea and Vordingborg in Denmark. The color-scheme of the swings themselves represents the specific colors of the national currency of the country in which the swings are installed. Over time, the work will evolve as the orange support continues to grow and new swings are added into the wider world.
