In a Lonely Place

Gregory Crewdson

Gregory Crewdson's photographs usually take place in small town America, but are dramatic and cinematic. They feature often disturbing, surreal events. The photographs in the series 'Beneath the Roses' are shot using a large crew, and are elaborately staged and lighted.

This exhibition consists of three series, 'Beneath the Roses' (2003-2007), 'Sanctuary series' (2010) and 'Fireflies series' (1996).

Sylvia Sleigh

In the upcoming exhibition period, Kunstnernes Hus will dedicate two exhibition halls to a first-time, unique presentation of paintings by the American artist Sylvia Sleigh. The posthumous solo exhibition is the most comprehensive one to date and presents works spanning sixty years. A broad selection has been made so as to showcase the totality and complexity of Sleigh’s artistic endeavour. 

Sylvia Sleigh (1916–2010) was born in Wales, but moved to the United States in the 1950s and settled in New York, where she lived for the rest of her life. Upon the emergence of feminism in the United States in the early 1970s, Sleigh established herself as a prominent artist, in particular by painting portraits of male and female models, both nude and clothed. She found her models among writers, actors, musicians, and her fellow artists: taken as a whole, her paintings serve as a map of the dynamic art scene of the 1960s and 1970s. In these portraits she combined bold sensuality with a personal feminism that placed her at the heart of a discourse on power, representation, and gender. This discourse, which should primarily be considered in view of her exploration of the traditional, academic painting’s fundamental guidelines, also entailed a break with an apparently deadlocked power relation between a portrait’s artist and subject.

Your Strangely Familiar Customs are Alien to Us,
Please Consider Revealing the Secret of Their Significance

Eirik Senje

An exceptionally long title deserves a short explanation. Anyone who has ever tried to defeat an inanimate object in a staring contest knows; this is not the way. As strategy tells us, always face the stronger opponent on ground where his advantages can be taken away from him. This is why, in order to get anything done, one must always study a thing thoroughly and then walk away from it. Inevitably a thing, tricked into thinking it holds all the cards, will expose itself by carelessly wandering into territory where it can be taken apart and reconfigured.

Where is a Bicycle's vagina (and other enquires), or around the Samovar

Darren Bader

Two notes on the tongue:

The tongue is composed of skeletal muscles and can be willingly controlled. The tongue is able to move in nearly every direction; it can expand, compress and display a fine degree of articulation. The sensations caused by the movements of the tongue inside the mouth, against the floor of the mouth, the soft tissue, and the teeth are suppressed – disregarded as sensational impressions – during simple, and semi-advanced, speech.

Sense of snow

Neither print nor drawing: the rubbings of Edvard Munch

Edvard Munch's Masterpieces

Large Snowflakes fell
endlessly endlessly. Up against
the air legions of snowflakes could be seen
and you could follow one of them with
your eyes so far almost all
the way to the ground, where they all collected
so softly, one flake on top of the other
the snow lay there like a
blanket, it lay so white and clean
on top of roofs and outside
the window all the way up to the pane

Ricardo del Pozo

Through digital real-time processes and spatialization techniques my work aims at addressing the formal aspects of sound and video, their inherent properties as artistic value. My work primarily concerns itself with the recorded material. It deals with the aspect of the acousmatic and space and how these recordings gains new significance as art through constructed environments.
