Demo in the Demo Room at Galleri Image

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 Kuhdal 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.

Demo opened on Friday 8 February 2019, with the opening of the exhibition “Krigen, Kunsten og Hjemsøgelsen skrevet af Ann-Katrine Schmidt Nielsen og oplæst af Kaptajn Simon Ekelund” by Peter Voss Knude. 

For several years, Peter Voss-Knude has worked with soldiers, the military and contemporary Danish participation in war, where art meets politics and anthroplogy, and he has among other things done a pop album with the Danish Defense Force. For this exhibiton Til Voss-Knude has produced a podcast, in which Captajn Simon Ekelund reads an academic analysis of Peter Voss-Knudes work with the military, written by Ann-Katrine Schmidt Nielsen. A prop from a former performance piece will be placed in the Demo Room. The podcast is in Danish.

The exhibitions are supported by the City of Aarhus (Kulturudviklingspuljen).
