Butterflies & Pussytales

Den 12. august kl. 12:00 - 14:00 slår Galleri Oxholm dørene op efter sommerferien med soloudstillingen Butterflies & Pussytales af den danske billedkunstner Nille Bech. I forbindelse med udstillingen lanceres en bog omkring kunst- og kønsprojektet, som er et samarbejde mellem Nille Bech og forfatter Lise Egeberg.

Det samlede værk Butterflies & Pussytales er Nille Bech og Lise Egebergs hyldest til mangfoldigheden, og med denne udstilling konfronterer de os med det kvindelige køns læber manifesteret i en overdådighed af smukke, skrøbelige sommerfuglevinger og med historier, der tager bladet fra munden og skammen fra læberne.

______________________________________________________

Læberne er “selvfisser” taget af 50 forskellige kvinder verden over – selvfisser som efterfølgende ved hjælp af gentagne scanninger, print og klip er bearbejdet til individuelle collageværker, hvor spændet mellem vingerne udgør sommerfuglens krop.

Kvinderne er blevet interviewet omkring deres skøds historier - historier som i forfatteren Lise Egebergs kreative skriveværksted er blevet forvandlet til Pussytales - poetiske monologer som komplimenterer Nille Bechs Butterflies.

NILLE BECH (DK) - f. 1975

Som billedkunstner arbejder Nille Bech i spændet mellem strømme af opslugt selvforglemmelse og momenter af bevidst isoleret tænksomhed. En proces, som tillader visuelle parallelverdener, menneskelig smerte og fysiske energiudladninger at forenes i et særegent og kønsspecifikt billedsprog, som afspejler konfrontation og gevaldig styrke.

Amaryllis VR : Ocean premiere
Aug
25
to Aug 27

Amaryllis VR : Ocean premiere

Join us for the premiere exhibition of the first chapter of Amaryllis VR: Ocean, the first standalone VR art installation created by a Danish artist.
This VR piece has been developed by Mariam Zakarian since February 2016 and will be shown in its finished form at the contemporary art gallery: Galleri Oxholm in Copenhagen, on the 25-27th of August.

--~~>>AMARYLLIS VR<<~~--
Amaryllis is a virtual reality art installation about the subject of mortality.
It is composed of mysterious, surreal worlds caught between deep, hazy dream and heavy nightmare.
Amaryllis was inspired by the life-cycle of the many-headed flower of the same name, to whom death and dormancy are as important as growth, beauty and life. The installation is at its core a communion with nature through digital technology.

The virtual installation is on the HTC Vive, but the concept is expanded with various traditional paintings and drawings on paper and canvas, as well as music specifically composed for each virtual world.

A taste of things to come: https://vimeo.com/224781413

--~~>>OCEAN<<~~--
The first chapter of Amaryllis is “Ocean” – a piece about cleansing and an entry point to the digital world. It swells and swallows the visitor continually, bringing both digital death and absolution. “Ocean” was inspired by the river Lethe from Dante’s Divine Comedy, which welcomes those who may venture out of the 9th circle of Hell. Bathing in the river would take away one’s memory, and wash away one’s sins. “Ocean” welcomes the visitor to a space of contemplation and catharsis.

Solo show by Niki Feijen (NL)

"Koempel"

"Koempel"

 

Dutch photographer Niki Feijen immortilizes an astonishingly intact glimpse into the past. This autodidact specializes in documenting and capturing historic architecture and abandoned buildings. Each photo fuses together the conflicting notions of beauty and decay and corresponds with his desire to capture and silently communicate with his audience about the subject’s very essence.

Niki wants to recreate the exact same scene as he sees while standing in a location but the lightspectrum your eye can capture is much, much wider than a camera can capture. Photographing a dark setting with extreme highlights like a window causes the highlights to wash out into white or dark areas can become obscure black blobs.  It’s impossible to shoot a photo that captures both ends of this spectrum. Since Niki does not use any artificial lighting he uses different exposures to capture a much wider light spectrum than a traditional photograph. The result is a hyper realistic photo which would replicate the exact same thing you would see standing inside the location yourself.

"Missouri Parallels : Joshua Hagler (US)

"Missouri Parallels : Joshua Hagler (US)

"True to their promise, the chums meet again" (and again and again)

"True to their promise, the chums meet again" (and again and again)

Joshua Hagler - “Missouri Parallels” is my second solo exhibition with Galleri Oxholm in Copenhagen. The exhibition presents recent paintings resulting from a year-long period of studio experimentation in 2016/17. Layers of paint are stripped away as they’re built up. The act of digging, picking, and erasing is important formally as well as conceptually. I think of the canvases as operating tables and excavation sites. Much of the process is outside of my control, which offers an opportunity to be confronted with a presence that can’t be easily summed up or explained.

There are two kinds of paintings here. - The first are landscapes referenced mainly from my own photographs and experiences during research trips along the Missouri River, beginning in Missouri and ending in South Dakota. My research began with an interest in the Missouri for its significance as an early 19th-century westward water route. What I discovered in the process has only now begun to reveal itself in my work.  

My first trip occurred before the presidential election; the second trip, after. I specifically looked at sites imbricated with many layers of history. Remnants of slavery, past and present indigenous cultures, Industrial-Revolution-era manufacturing and agriculture, ghost towns, as well as wildlife, farms, nature preserves, and education sites appear and recede along the way. The paintings depict multiple periods of time within one space. Unexpected forms are revealed with the removal of the top layers of paint. For me, these forms call into question the notion of progress within linear time. Time itself, then, becomes a subject in the work.

The second type of painting is figurative work responding directly to the original black-and-white silent film “The Birth of a Nation” by D.W. Griffith. “The Birth of a Nation” was a silent film which cast the Ku Klux Klan as its central heroes. After its release in 1915, this propaganda film, groundbreaking in its day, was used to recruit new members into the KKK. The work responds to certain scenes in a way that uses white supremacist imagery against itself. What I hope to reveal is a nostalgic romance that white American history has with itself, in its tendency to render its story falsely just and sympathetic, and, in so doing, ironically reveals its own shame. It is in this contradiction that I seek to invent new poetics of inherited shame and redemptive need.

"First Blood" : Simon Fensholm, Christian Gundtoft & Kent Richardt

to May 21

"First Blood" : Simon Fensholm, Christian Gundtoft & Kent Richardt

"First Blood" is a group exhibition featuring three artists all new to the gallery : Simon Fensholm, Christian Gundtoft and Kent Richardt.


Simon Fensholm (DK)
Denne udstilling tager udgangspunkt i mennesket og dets famlen efter kontrol i den ukontrollerbare kontekst, det befinder sig i. I en søgen efter den konstruerede autencitet og det kontrollerede kaos, der som en redningsvest kan få os til at flyde ovenpå alt det uperfekte og skrøbelige, der gør os til forgængelige væsner.

En ekspressiv dokumentar, der skaber et sammenhængende voyeuristisk portræt af det moderne menneske og dets samtid, hvor underspillet skrøbelighed og poesi gemmer sig lige under den lakerede overflade på den fine tunge maske, vi alle har siddende på vores rundtossede hoveder.

Mellem det perfekte og det uperfekte, det melankolske og det håbefulde. Lige dér i tågens grålige tvetydighed, mellem abstraktion og figuration, findes den poetiske og stille fortælling om menneskets blåtoner og de stemninger, der ikke synes at kunne oversættes til ord.

Simon Fensholm er uddannet fra Kunstakademiets Designskole. Han debuterede på Kunstnernes Efterårsudstilling 2015 og Charlottenborgs Forårsudstilling 2016.

_______________
Christian Guntoft (DK
"Jeg arbejder altid hen imod en indre vision, om end det er en flygtig størrelse. Indenfor maleriet har jeg flere nicher, jeg beskæftiger mig med, men det "store overlap" må være min fascination af DYNAMIK. Derfor finder jeg forholdet imellem ekstremer meget interessant, da der i disse spændfelter skabes de største energiudladninger.

Et maleri er færdigt, når det helt "har sluppet mig". Jeg plejer at sige, at det skal "flyve" - altså eksistere helt på sine egne præmisser og ikke være afhængigt af forklaringer eller andre ydre rammer. Det er mit ønske, at jeg som afsender fylder så lidt som muligt i beskuerens bevidsthed, således at det er muligt at danne sit eget forhold til et givent værk".

Christian Gundtoft er autodidakt billedkunstner og har siden 2015 haft atelier og galleri i Hedehusene som en del af kunstnerfællesskabet "Surrogaten".

____________
Kent Richard (DK)
Kent Richard er autodidakt billedkunstner og bruger udklip fra aviser, magasiner og gamle bøger kombineret med kul/grafit og akryl i sine værker. Hvert enkelt udklip fortæller noget i sig selv, men får yderligere en dimension, når de sættes i en ny og anderledes kontekst af kunstneren, som også bruger old school breve skrevet i hånden med pen og blæk. "Vi står på skuldrene af tidligere generationer. Vor verden og menneskene i den er i konstant forandring, og jeg ønsker med mine skævvredne motiver at få beskueren til at stoppe op og give sig tid til eftertanke. Det perfekte menneske er så uendeligt kedeligt, hvorimod det uperfekte gør livet større og verden så meget mere spændende".

Kent Richard har levet i og af musikken som trommeslager i mere end 40 år.

"Kinki Weekend"
During the weekend, April 22nd & 23rd we will be exhibiting the newest of Kinki Texas' drawings and one of his larger paintings. This event is also the launch of the artists newest book release. So come by and get your Kinki-fix on !!! The exhibition will be shown until Sunday, April 30th.

 

Kinki Texas (DE) - born in Bremen, 1969.

Singing cowboys, warrior crusaders, bandaged, partly skeletal figures … these are just some of the characters that populate Kinki Texas' paintings. The raw, somewhat unrefined appearance of these heroes and anti-heroes is matched by the roughness of the painterly gesture with which they have been captured on canvas: there is no trace here of a meticulous painting style; instead the works have a crude, garish finish. The visual motifs are accompanied by written words, some of which have been sprayed on, others scratched into the top layers of paint.


Kinki Texas (DE) - født i Bremen, 1969

Syngende cowboys, krigere, korsriddere, forbundne, skeletagtige figurer... Disse er blot nogle af de personligheder, der har hjem i Kinki Texas’ tegninger og malerier. Det rå, næsten uraffinerede, udtryk af hans helte og anti-helte er i perfekt balance med den grove maleriske teknik, der præger hans værker. De visuelle motiver er akkompagneret af ord og fraser såsom “Psycho Pompös” (!) eller “Deus lo Vult – Gott will es”. Alle disse elementer danner tilsammen det bizarre kunstneriske univers, som kunstneren kalder “Kinki Texas Space”

Det er tydeligt fra første øjekast, at kunstnerens visuelle udtryk er sammensat fra mange forskellige kilder: Graffiti-dækkede vægge er lige så meget en indflydelse som fjernsynstækket af Hollywoods skuespillere i Western-genrens B-film. Men det er også åbenlyst, at Kinki Texas’ værker ofte indeholder tematikker og figurer, der er gentaget gennem kunsthistorien. Og som en rød tråd gennem alle hans værker – gentagelsen af macabre motiver, der med humor og legende lethed samler det grusomme, det morbide og det makabre.

to Apr 30

SOLO SHOW : H.E.D. (NO) "SPEJLENE"

HÅKON ENGESÆTH DANIELSEN (NO)

“Min påstand er, at alt hvad jeg udtrykker, afslører sider af mig selv. Min kunstneriske udtryksform udvikles derfor gennem et arbejde med mig selv. Malerierne er således et afkast af min væren, der giver indblik i et givent tidspunkt af mit liv, som et mentalt fingeraftryk, som et spejl.“

Håkon Engesæth Danielsen's værker udtrykker det indre i det ydre. Fortællingerne kommer til udtryk gennem et ekspressivt sprog, der resulterer i en billedflade fuld af rytme og intensitet, med store som små mønstre af eksplosion. Dette synes at udtrykke en slags uragtig vildskab, der nærmest vælter larmende ind over beskueren, og på heftig vis afspejler følelsernes kompleksitet. Men engang imellem finder vi også små glimt af stilhed midt i stormen, når store billedflader efterlades tomme, og skaber en intethed, der står poetisk tilbage, som en italesættelse af en bestemt sårbarhed.

Der er ikke tale om malerier skabt som rene maleriske flader, men derimod om værker, der fungerer som vinduer ind til et bestemt indre. Det færdige værk er ikke blot selvet udtrykt i ekstern form, men derimod en direkte forlængelse af det. Det er Jegets udstrakte flade, der viser sig i abstrakte former og mønstre, som en slags sindbilleder af det følte. På den måde fungerer Danielsens praksis også som en undersøgelse af selvet og af de fysiske og mentale sindstilstande, som ikke altid er til at begribe og erkende. Derfor leger Danielsen også med ideen om, at hvert værk er en slags ’freudian slip’, der afslører Jegets sande psykologiske tilstand. Hver impuls indeholder en sandhed og beskriver øjeblikket, som det er her og nu. Og som et ægte ’freudian slip’ kan det føre hen til et sted, hvor mening bryder sammen, og ellers skjulte sandheder kommer frem.

SOLO SHOW : Nicolas Martin (FR)

SOLO SHOW : Nicolas Martin (FR)

NICOLAS MARTIN (FR)

There’s more than just a skillful artist behind the paintings of Nicolas Martin. It’s clear to the viewer after the first glance at any of his pieces, as each one of them portrays a sort of a philosophical nuance and an aura that cannot be shaken off. Simple and mundane in narrative, each of his paintings displays scenes that you wouldn’t ordinarily pay attention to in your daily routine: a corner of a building at night, trucks parked next to the road, a stairway exit… However, Martin’s technique and the way he plays with the light give the simplicity of the scene an unexpected complexity, permeating it with a mysterious, eerie feeling that binds both vision and thought. The way he applies the paint makes the inanimate objects seem as though they might move at any given time, and though the setting is often deprived of a subject, there never is a lack of presence in his work.

In order to create and portray a reality so recognizable, yet thus far unseen, Nicolas Martin uses more than his uncanny perspective and understanding of the surrounding space. Undoubtedly, his perception must be on a level different than yours or mine, for the otherwise familiar scenes that he depicts provoke attention and interest that isn’t usually felt; but in order to get it across on the canvas, the 1980 French-born artist honed his artistic skills in the influential Auguste Renoir School in Paris, as well as attending the graphic design program in Canada, at the University Laval.


… Gennemsyret af mystik

Der er mere end bare en dygtig kunstner bag malerier af Nicolas Martin, hvilket står klart og tydeligt efter det første blik på hans værker, som hver af især skildrer en slags filosofisk nuance og en aura, der ikke kan rystes af. Enkle og mundane i fortælling, viser Nicolas malerier scener, som du ikke normalt ville være opmærksom på i din daglige rutine: et hjørne af en bygning i natten, lastbiler parkeret ved siden af vejen, en trappe exit ... Men Nicolas teknik og den måde, han leger med lyset giver scenens enkelhed en uventet kompleksitet, gennemtrænger det med en mystisk, uhyggelige følelse, der binder både vision og tanke. Den måde, han anvender malingen gør at de ellers livløse objekter, synes som om de kunne bevæge sig på et givet tidspunkt … der er aldrig mangel på tilstedeværelse i hans malerier.

Den fransk-fødte kunstner Nicolas Martin ( f. 1980 i Paris ) har finpudset sine kunstneriske evner i den indflydelsesrige Auguste Renoir School i Paris, samt deltage i grafisk design-program i Canada, ved University Laval. Idag bor og arbejder han i Montreal, Canada.
