GROUP SHOWS 

Lea Porsager: There Should Have Been Roses

Lea Porsager is part of the group exhibition: There Should Have Been Roses at HFKD, HUSET FOR KUNST & DESIGN in Holstebro, Denmark. 

The exhibition is curated by Bizarro, displaying artworks by Lea Porsager, Chino Amobi, and Ursula Reuter Christiansen. Inspired by J. P. Jacobsen's "There Should Have Been Roses", the exhibition reimagines an indoor garden landscape. This unique display explores the symbolism of flowers in the artists' works, drawing from Jacobsen's short story.

By treating art as a synthetic form of nature, the exhibition invites the viewer to traverse a literary garden. Here, they can immerse themselves, find sustenance, and contemplate the complex interplay between reality and artistic representation. This exploration offers a multifaceted experience, navigating the spectrum between fear and flourishing.

The exhibition is on view until 10.03.2024.

Lea Porsager: "Bad Timing - or How to Write History Without Objects"

Lea Porsager is part of the group exhibition: "Bad Timing - or How to Write History Without Objects" at Den Frie Udstillingsbygning. ⁠

The exhibition is on view until 22.10.23.

_

"Bad Timing – or How to Write History Without Objects is based on the historical exhibition Women Artists’ Retrospective Exhibition from 1920, where 200 female artists (both living and dead) exhibited almost 700 works at Den Frie. This historical moment becomes an occasion to examine how artists, then as well as today, are active writers of their own and our common art history.⁠

Today, many of the works from the 1920 exhibition are unknown or lost. The same applies to the stories of many of the women who created works for the exhibition. Bad Timing investigates how it can be possible to work with this material and historical absence. How can this absence take shape and become registerable?  For the exhibition this void is materialised through large tableaux of new works by prominent contemporary artists, who work to make absence physical in very different ways."

GROUP SHOWS 

Gardar Eide Einarsson is a part of the group exhibition MONOCHROMES⁠

Gardar Eide Einarsson's Permanent Green Light is a part of the group exhibition MONOCHROMES⁠ at Medhi Chouakri, Berlin.⁠

The exhibition is open until 15.04.23⁠

A continuation of the artist’s interest in the act of covering up the white canvas as painting in its most basic form, the work Permanent Green Light exists in relation to the Fluorescent Pink and Stainless Steel series. It, like those, takes the color itself as the “found” element and as the title of the work - a title that in this case also carries a message of anything goes. In addition, the green has connotations of a “green screen”: an empty space that can be filled with whatever image is desired. ⁠

GROUP SHOWS 

Jone Kvie presented at documenta fifteen

One site-specific sculpture, a large volcanic rock, borrowed from the Druseltal Quarry in the vicinity of the city, is situated in the public area in Kassel Hauptbahnhof for documenta fifteen. The rock has been transported out of its natural place and presented as a found object in its unmodified and uninterrupted state, with moss, lichen, and grass still growing on it. In this setting, geological or mythological questions of origins, and connections between human civilization and the volcanic rock are brought into play. 
In the public space, people can use the rock as a place to sit down and rest, as a meeting point, or just passing by. 
 
Another sculptural work is presented in Kasseller Architecturzentrum, as part of an exhibition by the artist group A Stick in the Forest by the Side of the Road. Made of handblown glass, steel, aluminum, and volcanic rock, the sculpture is an interpretation of a planetary Nebula based on a photograph taken by the Hubble Telescope. Made in a glass workshop in Murano in Italy, it follows a line of sculptural works based on images from telescopes made by Kvie in different materials throughout the past decade. 
Through the artist’s process of material translation, Kvie’s works gain an ambiguous presence in time and space, often evoking the unknown, hinting at what we yet do not know. Any relationship to their source material, be it the natural sciences, popular culture, or art history, remains inconclusive.

GROUP SHOWS 

Tove Storch is a part of the group exhibition In a Slow Manner at Augustiana, DK. ⁠

Tove Storch's Untitled (2019) is a part of the group exhibition In a Slow Manner at Augustiana, DK.

The title, In a Slow Manner, pays tribute to the 1941 article Handweaving Today by the weaver Anni Albers. With an experimental approach, the exhibition activates the visitors’ senses with an examination of texture, expressed in a series of material-based, mainly textile works. From wall-hung woven works to two- and three-dimensional sculptures, the artists span a number of generations, intentions and expressions.⁠
