THE MAIN SPACE /

JES WIND ANDERSEN
ART IS EASY

We cordially invites you to a private view
FRIDAY OCTOBER 30 FROM 16-19

Galleri Christoffer Egelund is proud to present Jes Wind Andersen’s great individual exhibition Art Is Easy. Here the visitor will be introduced to a fascinating total installation consisting of paintings, photos, video and light that engage in a direct dialogue with the gallery space.

Art Is Easy is an investigation into paintings and their potential, and Jes Wind Andersen therefore questions the actual perception of paintings. This results in reflections on paintings as objects, as installation and as symbol, and reflections on the materials, tactility, presentation and perception. In order to illustrate the paintings’ basic qualities, Jes Wind Andersen confronts them with photos, video and light. How do formal and abstract paintings function in relation to, for instance, the figuratively recognisable nature photography? These constellations produce an interesting and thought-provoking dynamism between the different media and expressions of the exhibition, which challenges the visitor to reflect on the direct meeting with art and the ensuing presence, absence, distance etc.

The title, Art Is Easy, can be seen as a symbol or logo for the exhibition. However, it also refers to the feeling that fills the artist when something simply succeeds, or for that matter the feeling that fills the spectator when watching really good art.

Jes Wind Andersen (b. 1965) graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Art (1992-98) and subsequently completed the Academy’s post-graduate studies at the Theory and Mediation Department (1998-2000). Jes Wind Andersen has exhibited widely both in Denmark and abroad at, for instance, Randers Museum of Art, Vejle Museum of Art, Bornholm Museum of Art and Chongqing Art Museum in Beijing, China.

Galleri Christoffer Egelund invites you to the vernissage of Jes Wind Andersen’s exhibition Art Is Easy on Friday 30 October from 16-19. The exhibition will subsequently be on show during the period 31 October – 21 November. Opening hours: Monday-Friday 11-18, Saturdays 11-15.

ADAM SAKS
MEXICAN STANDOFF

Schäfer Grafisk Værksted cordially invited to the opening
FRIDAY NOVEMBER 6 FROM 17-19

In beautiful abandon Adam Saks unleashes in his most recent, monumental wood cuts an adventurous delirium of crude seafaring romanticism, grotesque chimeras, serpentine blazonry and shredded script, exotic oddity museums, compendiums of heraldry and emblemata, of ‘Heia, Safari’, disconcerting scenes of torture and colonial fantasies, comics, tattoo magazines, disreputable show girls or military devotional objects.

Compliably he lets the found motifal flotsam collide and clash as if seen through a psychedelic kaleidoscope. Comforting loathing and fearful idylls blur just as appraisingly as appallingly into one another, are painterly collaged, painted off and clinched together all anew.

Even the beholder’s gaze is ravished and tossed about upon these rough tableaux – now stranding here, now somewhere other. Motifs wander and slip away, are torn and beaten and bawled out. Adam Saks bares himself with heinous abandon in his pictures, and these crotchety, awkward, nailed-down and ornery, over-packed and gracefully bizarre escapades bear themselves with heinous wantonness: Blood, sweat, and wood cuts!

The exhibition will subsequently be on show during the period November 6 – 29. Opening hours: Monday-Friday 9.30-17.30, Saturdays 10-13. For further information on the exhibition and press photos please contact Michael Schäfer: mail@schaefergrafik.dk or call +45 23651231.

MORTEN STEEN HEBSGAARD IN A GROUP SHOW AT MUSEUM FÜR KUNST UND GEWERBE HAMBURG.
FENOMEN IKEA

MUSEUM FÜR KUNST UND GEWERBE HAMBURG cordially invited to the opening
FRIDAY NOVEMBER 13 FROM 17-19

FENOMEN IKEA, which is the main exhibition will have a straight focus on design/design history and  explores the relationship/connection between the ideas and ideals of famous reform movements like bauhaus and deutscher werkbund and the ideas and attitude of IKEA-design.

one part of this exhibition is called NON IKEA an is a kind of “exhibition in the exhibition” in which we put together work from artists/designers who use(d) IKEA-material or themes for their pieces. the plan is not to embed such works in FENOMEN IKEA but to separate this part and dedicate an extra show to this topic.

there once was an ikea-slogan they used in germany to illustrate the almost endless possibilities to combine their products for creating ones one individual home even though billions of other consumers  use the same ikea products. it was called: entdecke die möglichkeiten (something like: discover the options).

The exhibition will subsequently be on show during the period November 14 – February 28 2010. Opening hours: Tuesdays to Sundays 11-18, Wednesdays and Thursdays 11-21. For further information on the exhibition please contact Michaela Hille: michaela.hille@mkg-hamburg.de or call +49 (0)40 428 134 27 32.
