    On  Friday August 9th Galleri Image opens the new exhibition Staged Salvations, curated by Lovro Japundžić, which consists of works from three artist selected from the participants in PARALLEL -  European Photo Based Platform's second cyc
    le, André Viking (DK), Nils Stelte (DE), and Rocco Venezia (IT). Staged Salvations explores the idea of rituals used as an attempt to overcome the reality that has suddenly become a burden. Our very fragility transforms itself in the productive force that enables separation from the previously practiced patterns. Twisting common modes of perception becomes possible thanks to newly found tactics that can easily disrupt the human mind. Elements of material culture are turned into symbols and creative tools used in performance-like actions that initiate different ways of self-reflection within various communities enabling catharsis and fulfilment. In the quest for self-actualization and self-improvement the body is a primary medium through which a new level of consciousness becomes possible. The exhibition explores themes revolving around rites, rituals and similar acts humans partake in when building up resistancy to the chaos we may experience surrounding us every day. André Viking, Rocco Venezia and Nils Stelte capture such embodiments of individual and collective rituals in the forms of symbols, gestures, expressions, and rhythms. Their work reveals a universal quality in these embodied patterns communicated through performative actions. Rather than depicting clear, linear narratives, these artists introduce incomplete fragments, expressing the liminal quality of rituals in which reality questions itself. Depicted objects and characters can be a part of staged experience or spontaneous and improvised actions that may seem fantastic and dreamlike but are still deeply rooted in common human reality.On Friday August 9th from 4 - 6 pm, the exhibition will open at Galleri Image. On Saturday August 10th at 2 - 3:30 pm, Galleri Image will present talks with Lovro Japundžic and the artists.A catalogue of the same name will published in connection with the exhibition9 August  | 8 September 2019Staged Salvations is a part of the project PARALLEL - European Photo Based Platform, which was established in order to strengthen cooperation in the European art world as well as an opportunity to develop and establish an effective platform for the exhibition of the work of young artist and curators.

    Through various “historical” analogue techniques, Ida Nissen re-investigates the space between the visible and the invisible; a magical space, where new visual phenomena can occur. Central is a series of colour photo frames produced in the closed off sphe
    re of a dark room, without the use of a camera. The process of creation in the dark room will be reflected in the spatial installation and special light fixtures surrounding it in complementary colours.
