With a focus on creating a vibrant study environment, where innovation and a sense of belonging play a greater role in everyday life, the SOSU departments in Aarhus and Silkeborg have gained new permanent art experiences from the renowned artists; Cornelia Baltes, Alexander Tovborg, Michael Utzon, Nat Bloch Gregersen, Astrid Myntekjær, Ugo Rondinone and Ditte Ejlerskov.

Photo: Spine Studio

The photobook Inuuteq Storch: John Møller – Mirrored, Portraits of Good Hope by the Greenlandic photographer Inuuteq Storch (b. 1989) collects a selection of 178 photographs from the first professional photographer from Greenland John “Ujuut” Møller, selected, carefully edited and arranged by Inuuteq Storch. The photographs were taken in the period 1889-1935, just over 100 years before Inuuteq Storch himself was born and shows portraits of the many newly arrived Danes seen from a Greenlandic perspective.

The publication is part of Inuuteq Storch’s Archive project, where he seeks to tell the Greenlanders’, his own, story from the locals’ perspective: What do the picture look like when they come from inside and not from the outside? Through John Møller’s beautiful and distinctive photographs, the publication provides an important historical insight and stands as an important visual presentation of the colonial times in Greenland. Text by geologist Minik Rosing and researcher at the Greenland National Museum Kirstine Møller.

The book has been published on Roulette Russe and can be purchased for DKK for 250 at www.rouletterusse.dk.

Inuuteq Storch: John Møller – Mirrored, Portraits of Good Hope is supported by: Selvstyrets Kulturmidler – Naalakkersuisut, Politiken-Fonden, Den Grønlandske Fond, Ophavsretfonden and NunaFonden.

ART PLAYS AN IMPORTANT PART AT VIA’S NEW CAMPUS HORSENS

Photo: Adam Mørk

H.R.H. The Crown Princess and the world-renowned artist Daniel Buren inaugurated VIA’s new Campus Horsens on September 24th. With the construction of the new campus, Buren has realized his first permanent commissions in Denmark. Unique to these artworks is that they are conceived as an important, integrated and site-specific element from the beginning of the project. Art and architecture are thus part of a unique interplay and creates a work that in an exceptional way responds to the architecture. The whole building is a spectacular artwork that the students, teachers and visitors will experience as they walk through the entrances, stand under the skylight, sit in the canteen, attend a lecture in the auditorium or stay in the atrium. An experience which at each encounter will change according to the time of day and the intensity of the light flowing through.

The site specific artwork is created by Daniel Buren, curated by Creator Projects and developed in collaboration with CF Møller Architects who have contributed to architectural integration in the new VIA campus building.

In connection with the opening of the Chart Art Fair, we were able to unveil the fact that we over the past year and in the future will consult the Buffalo AKG Art Museum about their massive expansion project, including the AKG Nordic Art and Culture initiative. The initiative is a curatorial program for cultural and artistic exchange without precedent both in its scope and sustainability. An initiative that is the first to offer a dedicated North American platform for artists and cultural producers who work in or are associated with the Nordic region.

If this were not enough, the museum will also establish the Nordic Gallery, a space in the museums new building designed by OMA/Shohei Shigematsu, to honor the Nordic regions contribution to world culture and the generous supporters of the initiative. The expanded and renovated museum will contain significant new permanent commissions by Mariam Bäckström og Olafur Eliasson.

HUGE LIGHT INSTALLATION BY MARTIN CREED WILL LIGHT UP THE WINTER DARKNESS IN CENTRAL COPENHAGEN

The 8-metre tall and 15-metre long artwork ‘Work No. 2630 UNDERSTANDING’ by the world-famous British artist Martin Creed (b. 1968) will light up the winter darkness in central Copenhagen as an artistic gesture to the public spirit we all show at the moment. The rotating work, that previously has been raised in Brooklyn, New York, with Manhattan’s skyline as a backdrop, was originally intended to be installed at the cancelled Roskilde Festival no. 50 last summer. 

‘Work No. 2630 UNDERSTANDING’ is now installed by Roskilde Festival as a new temporary landmark at Ofelia Plads in central Copenhagen, with the Royal Danish Playhouse to one side and the Opera House to the other, and calls for hope and understanding in a time that is difficult for many.

ANDREAS SCHULENBURG

We are happy to announce that the Danish artist Andreas Schulenburg will create his site specific artwork “Krusedulle på papir”, meaning “a curlicue on paper”, for the big common area at Frederiksberg Skole in Aarhus, Denmark.

Andreas Schulenburg is known for his cheerful approach to art and his sense for details. With his sculptures and objects in felt, he strives to make us curious and to develop new fun spatial experiences which will become an interesting and natural topic of conversation at the school. The artwork will represent the idea generation emerging in the mind of students when solving a problem, or working on a school project. The work will be felt on canvas and will represent a paper in a typical A4 letter format but ten times bigger. A black curlicue will be attached to the canvas, and the work becomes alive with a three-dimensional pencil, visualizing the movement of an actual pencil drawing a curlicue.

The artwork is realized by Frederiksbjerg Skole in collaboration with Creator Projects and supported by Statens Kunstfond.

WILLIAM SOYA IN CPH AIRPORT

Visualization: CPH Airport

WILLIAM SOYA

The danish artist William Soya (1927-1992) has created a large sculpture, that was previously installed in the ceiling in Kolding Library. After the library moved, the piece was kept in a storage room. With generous help from the Danish Arts Foundation, Soyas work will now be preserved and moved to the new part of CPH Airport, Finger E. Throughout his practice Soya experimented with geometry, abstract forms and opposed the division between sculpture and painting. This piece is a fantastic example. He was part of the revolutionary 60’s international art movements here among Fluxus and the concrete art movement. Travellers will experience an important piece in danish art history, which draw lines to the global art scene. This relocation will mean a great deal for Soyas legacy and position in danish and international art history.

Art in the airport should bring surprises, calming surroundings and a sense of the place and country. Soyas piece will provide travellers from all over the world with the possibility of experiencing acknowledged danish art. We believe, we are very lucky to have received this art piece as a gift,” – Henrik Vahlun, project manager at CPH Airport.

GIRLIFICATION BY PETRA KLEIS

Girlification is a testimony of photographer Petra Kleis’s deep fascination of artist Maja Malou Lyse, her freedom, and playful mind. Over the course of three years Kleis has been documenting Lyse, as both an artist and a muse, creating a fun and sexy portrait in book format.

The book reads as a classic work of erotic photography: the female muse, explored and examined by the photographic gaze. Shot casually and sporadically, the photo series portrays the female model as a desired object and a desiring subject: dressing up, dressing down, or overtly reproducing classic motifs and archetypes of contemporary Western sexuality. Visually, the photographs are inspired by pioneers such as Juergen Teller, Nan Goldin, and Helmuth Newton.

GIRLIFICATION is a manifestation of the contemporary digital age as it draws attention to topics as internet porn, nude selfies, #MeToo, and social media censorship. 

The photographs are accompanied by texts written by curator and cultural critic Jeppe Ugelvig and American post-porn ecosexual artist Annie Sprinkle. 

The book is launched by Roulette Russe and available for purchase www.rouletterusse.dk.

Price 400 DKK

The publication is supported by Ragnvald and Ida Blix’ Fond.

ART BEFORE TAKE-OFF IN COPENHAGEN AIRPORT

ALEXANDER TOVBORG

Alexander Tovborg’s monumental glass mosaic “Sphinx and Nature” shows a sphinx in a landscape featuring sea, rocks, mountains, and an extensive sky. The enigmatic and mysterious sphinx with a lion’s body, a female head, and wings is poised between animal and man, deity and nature, Heaven and Earth. A sun traverses the yellow sky, indicating the passing of time and the transition from one state to another. The motif also recalls the airport as a point of transit for starting or finishing a journey and as a global connective agent in an ever more international world. The warm colours are chosen for their ability to induce tranquillity and harmony in the pulsating airport environment while the motif inspires common narratives irrespective of age, gender, or nationality.

HUSKMITNAVN

The Danish visual artist HuskMitNavn (RememberMyName) has created a mural specifically for the connecting corridor leading passengers out to Pier D and E. The monumental mural ‘Airport People’ measuring 26.4 x 1.8 m is about journeys from or to new adventures, jobs, or romantic encounters. The intention is to instill a sense of cheerful anticipation and empathy in airport travellers and to remind us to embrace everyone regardless of where we come from or where we are going.

“The figures represent affectionate portraits of airport users. From the hectic businessman, the weighed-down family group to the couple, very much in love and heading for Paris. The idea is to give passengers a good start to their journey by spotting themselves and others in the figures,” HuskMitNavn
