    Opening: Friday 13 September 2019 from 4-6 pm at Galleri Image, Vestergade 29, 8000 Aarhus COn Saturday September 28th at 2 pm Galleri Image will host a seminar about this exhibition. In attendance, Associate Professor in Digital Aesthetics and Design, Lo
    ne Koefoed Hansen, Butterfly expert Anne Erlend Eskildsen and Artist Signe Klejs.A Butterfly flapping its wings can be the cause of a hurricane on the other side of the Earth. That is a popular interpretation of chaos theory, which describes how small changes at the beginning of a process can have significant effect later on. The exhibition BLOWN AWAY is influenced by chaos theory and addresses the ways in which human actions can affect our surroundings and have more impactful consequences than can be predicted. Do we have enough understanding of the fact that we are a global community in which everyone and everything is affected? How do we part with the things that are disappearing as a result of our actions? Klejs refers to her video installation as a Butterfly Necropolis as it consists of a video archive depicting colors and patterns from the more than 12 species of butterflies which are now extinct in Denmark. This extinction which has happened over a few decades and is caused by changes to their living conditions. Butterflies are called nature’s thermometers because they react quickly to environmental changes. Farming of more land and climate changes affect flora and fauna and more than half of the butterfly species here in Denmark are therefore vulnerable or threatened by extinction. In the exhibition, extinct species are depicted with colored sand, like Buddhist sand mandalas – a tradition that is meant to remind us that nothing lasts forever, where monks carefully create large symmetrical images with colored sand that are then destroyed during a ritual, after which the sand is distributed back to nature.In BLOWN AWAY the butterfly images are blown away. The wind is derived from wind data in real time from the sea southeast of New Zealand – literally on the other side of the planet. In this way, the direct effect caused by wind conditions from far away is made visible.Klejs’ latest works all engage with variability as a result of changes in the surrounding environment. She has used data from sources such as the setting sun and local wind conditions, seeking to depict the relationship between environment (nature) and artwork (culture).Signe Klejs (b. 1974) is a Danish artist with a master’s in Design with Digital Media from Design School Kolding and Universität der Künste Berlin, where she studied experimental media art. In her work, she challenges the potential in digital art through what she defines as, relational encounters between body, space and technology. She works across many genres including, stage art, visual arts, site specific art, installations and transmedia projects. Klejs' art has been exhibited all over Scandinavia, in Europe, Asia and the US. During the European Cultural Capital in Aarhus 2017 Klejs created the piece Hesitation of Light. Since May 2019, her permanent light installation Zeitgeist has been installed on the façade of The Women’s Museum in Aarhus.You can read more on her website: www.cygne.dkA special thanks to CAVI, Aarhus University.The Exhibition is supported by Kulturudviklingspuljen (City of Aarhus), Augustinus Fonden and the Danish Arts Foundation.

    This year's Photobook Week Aarhus (PWA) will take place from 3 - 6 October. Look forward to 4 days filled with talks, book market and exhibitions! Photobook Week Aarhus 2019 will examine the theme “Flatness”, both in a metaphorical and in a literal s
    ense. One of our key shows in this framework will be New Topographics in Photobooks, curated by Thomas Wiegand. It will feature selected works of the main participants of the legendary exhibition New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape and its lasting effect on landscape photography, as well as reactions and parallels especially from Germany. Other exhibitions will also question the seemingly flat surface of the book: Book objects, leporello books, foldable maps and other techniques that defy the flatness of the page, will be in the center of our attention.The festival’s regional theme will be on Chilean and Swedish photobooks. Another highlight will be Asia 8, featuring the winners of the Steidl Book Award in collaboration with the Singapore International Photo Festival. The show Rebellious Photobook, curated by Jose Luis Neves (watch his talk at PWA15), will be a small showcase of books that attempt to deconstruct the inherent ‘flatness’ of the page, either by subverting the reading process or exploring the material orthodoxy of the codex.Other important exhibitions will feature Lasse Krog Møller’s oeuvre at the Aros Museum and Stijn Van der Linden’s brand new photobook An essay on the concave city corner, at Dokk1 Library.Artists: Carolina Agüero. Toni Amengual, Kapil Das, Eugenio Dittbor, Paula López Droguett, Guilherme Freitas, Grethe Grathwol, Naomi Harris, Sasha Huber, Iris Janssens, Sergio Larraín, Broy Lim, Stijn Van der Linden, Rony Maltz, Lasse Krog Møller, Jongwoo Park, Robert Zhao Renhui, Jenny Rova, Tatiana Sardá, Marcela Serrano, Christer Stömholm, Woong Soak Teng, Lars Tunbjörk, Jake Verzosa, Lijie Zhang, and more.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Since 2014, the Aarhus School of Architecture and Gallery Image have collaborated on organising Photobook Week Aarhus. PWA focuses on the rapidly growing international interest in photobooks in recent years and represents a continuous study of the evolution and role of the medium.PWA presents the photobook to the general public and to individuals who work professionally with photobooks and photography, be it from an artistic, communication-related or academic standpoint. User involvement, openness and dialogue are key words when it comes to the form and content of the festival. For this reason, PWA has placed great emphasis on inviting a large number of exhibitors and speakers who can present the photobook in a cross-disciplinary perspective. This has made it possible to exhibit significant but rare photobooks that have been discussed by researchers, photographers, leading curators, architects, representatives of The Danish School of Media and Journalism, and many other qualified contributors from around the world.Photobook Week Aarhus 2019 will be the 6th edition of the festival, which is a collaboration between Galleri Image and Aarhus School of Architecture. The festival is curated by national and international experts under the leadership of Chief Curator Moritz Neumüller and the curatorial team: Anne Elisabeth Toft, Beate Cegielska and Jesper Rasmussen.Stay up to date about the festival programme read about previous edition's of PWA on the festival website: http://photobookweek.org/ or on Facebook. This year, PWA is part of Art Weekend Aarhus.

    Opening: 8 November 16:00 - 18:00 at Galleri Image, Vestergade 29, 8000 Aarhus CThe historical process to date has deposited in you an infinity of traces, without leaving an inventory  – Antonio Gramsci As the title suggests, the writer Antonio
    Gramsci’s attention to how history deposits in us, without an inventory, inspired the main idea of Ida Nissen’s show. Compiling such inventory of the traces from heredity, individual and collective traditions, relations and experiences, appear as the most important task in order to give our history shape and sense. Compile Your Inventory brings together a series of completely new works, in which layered colour photograms form an abstract narrative of collages, addressing a dynamic of kinship, displacement and transformation.Drawing inspiration from her South Korean heritage, Nissen sources traces from personal memory, and creating an inventory of shapes, signs and symbols related the South Korean traditional culture. These works can be seen as fragments of identity being compiled through re-interpretation blurring the boundaries of what is already known and what is the foreign. A driving interest in her practice is the in-between state of the authentic and the constructed, real and imaginative. Photography in particular, becomes a medium that motivates this ambiguity and ultimately forms the narratives and memories, that cannot be represented in language or thought. Bio: Danish artist Ida Nissen lives and works in London. She studied at Valand Academy in Gothenburg and is a recent graduate from Royal College of Art in London. Nissen works with photography and has exhibited widely in Europe. More recent exhibitions and publications include: Photo London, Somerset House, UK; European Parallel Platform: Lisbon, Poland, Zagreb; Entrée, Bergen; Raumflucht, LAABF, LA; Skape Gallery, Seoul; Sirin, Copenhagen.  For a full list and more information about her work, please visit her website: idanissen.comThe exhibition is supported by The Danish Arts Foundation.
