– The space between the artist’s studio and the gallery
Launching March 12, 2021
We are excited to bring you closer to our artists through a new virtual project space sharing new works and projects from around the world. As the title MELLEMRUMMET designates, a Danish word for ‘the space in between’, the virtual platform marks the halfway between the artist studio and the physical gallery exhibition allowing us to present an insight to the artists’ domains and work processes.
MELLEMRUMMET 1.0 first started in 2009 as a physical exhibition space within the former gallery at Ny Carlsberg Vej in Copenhagen. In 2021, reflecting a most acute reality, we wish to bring forward the renowned and influential platform by launching MELLEMRUMMET 2.0, a virtual reenactment of the former exhibition space.
With the aim to provide an exhibition format that allows the artistic processes and field of activities to unfold, NILS STÆRK – MELLEMRUMMET presents four annual projects. Visitors can explore and collect works from curated exhibitions of gallery artists and special collaborations. Adding another dimension to the art experience, each exhibition will be conveyed entirely from the artist’s perspective, in their own words and through film-based insights from the artist’s studio.
Testing new grounds, MELLEMRUMMET will appear both as a virtual exhibition platform followed by a physical pop-up exhibition from where the artwork(s) on view can be accessed physically. Pop-up exhibitions will be announced continuously. Each of them will take place at an external location in Denmark or abroad on the opening day or as an event halfway during the exhibition period.
