The exhibition Composed presents a series of serial works by prominent contemporary female artists.
With different takes on the serial, the gallery want to focus on the artists’ work with and against the artistic traditions that the female artists subscribe to.
In connection with the opening and on the occasion of Women’s Day, there will be a talk on Wednesday 8 March at 5-7pm. Several of the artists will participate and the talk is moderated by Charlotte Fogh, Mag art and gallerist.
The talk lasts an hour and we serve a glass of bubbly in the meantime.
Composed – briefly about the artists:
Rose Eken shows a series of Tinsel paintings with Battle jackets from the world of rock music. The paintings are made with paint and glitter foil on glass, which is a technique that was widespread among American women in the 1920s.
Hanne Nielsen and Birgit Johnsen show a double photographic work, which is a CT scan of an arrangement with bottles. The work is a translucence of a classic still life motif; a motif that especially female artists have cultivated.
Maria Wæhrens shows a series of tempera on paper that all stem from ideas about the abstract – about abstract expressive painting and the personal narrative
Katja Bjørn shows serial photographic works and video sculptures (fountains) that deal with the existential and the human body – especially the woman’s body.
Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen shows performative works including a collective work consisting of a series of impressions of the artist’s body with squid ink on silk, which together draw a self-portrait.
Lene Desmentik shows a series of graphic works with embroidery and sculptural works built in Lego blocks that join hands with the minimalist tradition.
