    Galleri Image presents new work by the artist Maria Meinild in the exhibition A HUM – the artist’s first solo exhibition in Aarhus. The exhibition will be shown from 12 January – 24 February 2019 The reception for the opening will be on 11 January at 4 pm
    . About the Exhibition: In the exhibition A HUM, Maria Meinild explores the borders between the self and the other, between human and non-human, through video installation, photographic works and individual objects. Central to the exhibition is the video installation, where puppeteers and objects are seen together in choreographed movements. The staging of the relationship between objects, conditions and human beings unfolds in scenes, where connections between individual and interpersonal relations are explored. The scenarios in the video are inspired by psychodrama; a form of group therapy that utilises elements of theatre, engaging with spontaneity and the exploration of emotions and behavioral patterns through roleplay. The exhibition as a whole addresses how social structures such as, community and institutions relate to individual experiences. The puppet becomes a hybrid between object and body. Meinild’s use of puppet-and object theatre can be seen as a metaphor for our relationship to the body as it exists in and is transformed by an accelerating economy and technologies. Maria Meinild will present her work in an artist talk on Saturday 23 February at Galleri Image. About the Artist: Maria Meinild (b. 1984 in Sweden) work combines methods from the world of theatre with investigations of the staging of everyday life, patterns of social behaviour, and our ideas of normality. She lives and works in Copenhagen and holds an MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and she has also studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Recent exhibitions include; Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna; Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; Galleri CC, Malmö; Galerie Les Territoires, Montréal og Künstlerhaus KM, Graz. She was recently awarded residency at the Delfina Foundation in London and at ISCP in New York. The exhibition is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, Danish Art Workshops Copenhagen, and IAC Malmö.
  • Curated by Sophia Ioannou Gjerding and William Kudahl

    Fra February 04, 2019 til July 28, 2019
    Sted: The Demo Room at Galleri Image 29 Vestergade
    In February 2019, Sophia Ioannou Gjerding and William Kudahl will open a new exhibition concept in the Demo Room in Galleri Image, where a unique exhibition program will be on display alongside Galleri Image’s other exhibition programs. Gjerding and Kuhda
    l will curate the series of exhibitions for this format under the main title Demo, aiming to create an ambitious exhibition program over the course of 5 months with both national and international artists. The exhibitions will revolve around a mixture of sound, language, image and physical objects, and will include both solo- and group exhibitions. The series of exhibitions will unfold in two different exhibition spaces  simultaneously: In the Demo Room on Vestergade, and in an attached virtual space; a website has been produced especially for the occasion with sound based works, which are connected to the exhibition in the Demo Room.The exhibitions are supported by the City of Aarhus (Kulturudviklingspuljen).

    Screen Shots: Desire and Automated Image is a group exhibition and symposium curated by Assistant Professor at Aarhus University, Magdalena Tyzlik-Carver. This group exhibition presents the work of 9 artists who produce images with the use of computationa
    l processes of image making. At the heart of the project is a networked image that does not simply result from performing a set of gestures: aim, frame, capture, share, common in social media culture. Rather the focus here is on a distributed and durational quality of presented works performed and executed by different agents, at different times and to different ends. Showcasing images as hybrid, subjectivised and algorithmic (mathematical) this exhibition investigates the relation between computational process of generating image and the way that the artists inject their desires and activate affect as operational within a computational system. If we consider the image as a scene we fall in love with, one that we want to capture and keep, what are contemporary infrastructures of image-making where a computer becomes one with a camera? How does this computational process of photography shape and organise the scenes that we so want to keep​ and those that are made for databases? What are the stories that we want to remember and those that can be generated by the data query? Today, images captured with a camera that is a phone that is a computer result from networking of humans and machines, social media platforms and their users, algorithms and data, protocols and resolutions. And in the process we learn what it means to see like a machine, and we teach machines what it is that we can see and feel. Human intervention in the computational process injects love and anxiety; humour, desire and mourning are translated into data and processed by algorithms. Photography is defined as technology and a medium of representation, but what is represented, how and for whom is not that obvious to see.   Artworks in this exhibition engage images to expand both our understanding and experience of them. Captured with the screen-shot function the image is processed and performed as a story, a collection of data or executed as a computer program. The desire to see more leads to the image as imaginary. In effect what is introduced as part of Screen Shots is not just considered in terms of what images represent but rather as complex processes of data manipulation and remediation. Taking into account the distributed photographic apparatus and its infrastructures the exhibition aims to showcase the very process of image making as imaginary scenes performing stories, bodies, data, affects and computation.The exhibiting artist are: Zach Blas (UK/USA), Jemima Wyman (AU/US), Petra Cortright (USA), Sebastian Lütgert a.k.a. Robert Luxemburg (D), Winnie Soon (HK/DK), Sarah Shorr (USA/DK), Michael Mandiberg (USA), Anna Ridler (UK) and Kristoffer Ørum (DK).Photo credit: Sebastian Lütgert a.k.a.

    Picnicking is far from a simple affair in eastern India. In a land where the fleeting months of December to February offer the only time to ‘enjoy’ the otherwise unbearable tropical sun, picnicking is a winter pastime that’s taken very, very seriously. B
    uses and cooks are hired as groups of families, friends, neighbors and colleagues travel far to claim the perfect picnic spot, preferably around the innumerable rivers traversing the landscape, from the Ganges downstream to the Rupnarayan, Icchamati and myriad other tidal rivers close to the Sunderbans. Vats of freshly slaughtered chicken, sacks of vegetable and an arsenal of pots, pans and gas cylinders are lugged along, taking cooking en plein air to a whole new level. Yet the most curious detail is, by and far, the extravagant loudspeakers that come with nearly every picnic group. Transported in their own hand drawn carts or mini-vans, separate generators are also brought along to pump up the electricity in the great outdoors. Songs from recent Bengali and Hindi blockbusters blare high above permissible decibels. Drunk on whiskey and rum, men of all ages brawl, dance their hearts out or pass out, as wives, girlfriends and children watch. PIK-NIK by Arko Datto, with work done between 2013 and 2015, takes a look at these yearly picnics as a phenomenon, their cultural meaning, and the environmental imprint that is left on the nature after each event.Read more about Arko Datto:
