Indvielsen – Invitation to the exhibition opening – June 3 – Copenhagen
It is my great pleasure to invite you to the opening of the exhibition of our project – Indvielsen | Initiation: The Danish Tribe
June 3, 2016
17:00 – 19:00, Artist talk at 17.30
Politiken Boghal – Rådhuspladsen 37 , 1785 København K
This is a multi-disciplinary art project that me and Laureline Demonet have been working on lately. It is a project where we combine social studies, fashion, textile craft and photography.
Laureline explores the views of newcomers to Denmark on the Danish fashion and “Danishness” in general. She then creates a mask of what she has discovered through the interviews and later on I take photographs of the interviewees wearing their “Danish” mask.
This work is an opportunity for the Danes to look at themselves from a very unusual angle. We wish thereby to shake up the stereotypes about national identities and invite you to join the tribe!
The first part of our project will be exhibited as an installation on the Metro’s construction’s wall -City Hall Square. This is definitely the largest installation that I have ever been part of – we take over the whole wall, which is 4 meters high and 50 meters long, from top to bottom! The oversized portraits, accompanied by a narrative, will be there from the 3rd of June 2016 until end of December 2016.

I’m really looking forward to seeing you on June 3rd for the opening of this bizarre project!
Homeless Gallery exhibition during the Copenhagen Photo Festival
I would like to invite you to the Homeless Gallery, an event that our collective, Norse Creative, is organizing within the Copenhagen Photo Festival this year.
The concept of the Homeless Gallery was founded in Poland in 2001 by Tomek Sikora and Andrzej Świetlik and since then has found temporary homes in more than 80 countries.
The idea with the Homeless Gallery is to enable all artists to publicly show their work, which for different reasons would otherwise not make it to public display.
Artists who cannot afford a gallery, artists who like to experiment, artists who would not think of showcasing their work to other people than family and friends. But also for professional artists who want to show some of their more personal projects.
The exhibition is not curated and open to all artists. Everybody can show their work, professionals, amateurs, students.
There are no entry requirements with regards to theme, format or genre. The exhibition will show work solely based on the artists self-censorship.
The Homeless Gallery has no permanent residence, it appears, opens its doors to the public, only to vanish again after a short while. The exhibition shall be a tribute to the many forms of photography and shall give space to a unique collection of photographical work, which will only exist in this form for a limited time.
This year we expect to host about 35 artists from various countries, residing mainly in Copenhagen, but also coming from London and Amsterdam.
From Friday to Sunday the Gallery will be open from 14.00 till around 22.00 and maybe later!
We have a nice lineup of live music for Friday, June 13th, starting with yours truly as part of the Turkish flute class with our teacher Cahit Ece at 15.00 (I’ll be on the guitar though), later at 17.00 we’ll have Cloos/Lund/Søgaard jazz trio, then around 20.00 – a band called Pierrot le Flou (beautiful music and vocal! not to miss!!) and there will be a DJ duo at the end of the evening…
Saturday is dedicated more to the photography – we will have Dmitry Bulkin from London giving an artist talk during the day and then Erik Schrader will join the Gallery with his artist talk and we’ll hear and see also from two travellers about their project in Uganda.
The Homeless Gallery is hosted by KW3, a project and cultural house for the young entrepreneurs and artists, located in Østerbro.
KW3, Krausesvej 3, 2100 København Ø.
Opening 12 June 2014, 20:00 – 22:00
13 – 15 June 2014, 14:00 – 22:00
