JANUSBEYGNINGEN AND SAK, DK
Images do not arise from nothing, there is always a history.
The exhibition is about the role models that artists have either motivically, technically, thematically, materially, mood-wise or in some other way. The exhibition focuses on the work’s starting point and asks about something that might otherwise be difficult to talk about, namely artistic relationships. What heritage does the image creator draw on, and who is the artist in dialogue with?
14 contemporary artists, all with a point of view in painting, provide an insight into who and what has shaped their artistic practice. The exhibited works are presented in a communication framework that sheds light on this ‘origin’.
Anita Viola Nielsen, Annette Olesen, Astrid Marie Christiansen, Emily Gernild, Jonna Pedersen, Kristian Devantier, Martin Askholm, Matvey Slavin, Melou Vanggaard, Mia Nelle Drøschler, Mie Olise Kjærgaard, Nana Bastrup, Simon Ganshorn and Simon Grimm.
The exhibition is kindly supported by the Danish Artcouncil
