    Galleri Image presents the exhibition Spare Parts with photographic and video artworks by the Danish artist Freya Sif Hestnes. The exhibition opens Friday 20 November. There is a body stuck to the end of my brain. It is digesting. It is growing hair. It i
    s producing saliva, sweat, warmth. All these processes function simultaneously with everything else. While we focus, interpret, get distracted. While we consume and try to be real. While we put up wallpaper and think of what to have for dinner. We lean against fences that trace shadows on our skin. We take up space. We leave trails. Hestnes’s exhibition Spare Parts is a series of compositions – everyday situations, pinpointing the connection and disconnection between our physical and mental selves. Hestnes is inspired by the nature morte tradition and the vanitas motifs of Baroque art, where the depiction of objects in a state of depravity and decay is central. Loose body parts linger between object and abject, simultaneously repulsive and present. It is brutal to realise that you have a body. We are eyes, faces, lungs, hands. We are bones and blood. We are arms and legs. But we are also made up of parts that we do not even know the name of. We are intestines that have the same surface area as tennis courts. We are cuticles. We are busy bacteria. Until the day this busy stops. You are tendons, nails, nerves, tissue. Fragile. An abattoir of parts in a brittle construction, neatly packaged in skin to hide its dull grey brown colour. Tired livers. Stubbed toes. Mitochondria. We avoid going to the dentist because we are afraid of what they will find – a fault in our health and a reminder that we have abused it. Corrupted it. That, which we call our body. Not at first, but over time. Over our instances. In marks we leave on ourselves, on each other. On what is neighbouring. Spare Parts is a toast to our bodies and the trials that befall it. To our belly buttons. To our sunburns and to our bunions. To all our parts that work chronically and have nothing to spare. To sit and think about our lungs inflating and deflating. Inflating. Deflating. Inflating. Deflating. And how they will continue to do so, until they do not. About the artist:Freya Sif Hestnes (b. 1986) is a visual- and performing artist, living in Copenhagen. She as a BFA in photography from Valand Academy (SE) and a degree in scenography from the Norwegian Theatre Academy (NO). Since graduating in 2017, she has exhibited at galleries throughout Scandinavia and toured in large parts of Europe as a performer and scenographer in her own productions. Hestnes is a present figure in the independent performing arts field as well as theatres in Denmark, most recently as a scenographer in the Reumert-winning performance "Brøgger" at Teater Republique.Through video, installation and performance, she explores how personal stories can find a place in the collective. Hestnes examines the world through small stagings of reality where humor, absurdity and sensory experience merge into documentary and autobiography. Here, everyday objects often appear as markers of the complex relationship between humans and their material environment.Text by Andy Allen-Olivar.Visit the artists website for more information: www.freyasifhestnes.comThe exhibition is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation and the City of Aarhus (Kulturudviklingspuljen).

    Galleri Image presents the exhibition Times Three with computer- and installation art by the Danish Visual Artist Rebecca Krasnik. The exhibition opens Friday 15 January 2021. In the exhibition Times Three, Rebecca Krasnik examines how space is establishe
    d and how meaning is created in a 3D computer animation. Time plays a central role in Krasnik's examination. What are some thoughts and ideas about time that are present in the creation and understanding of the computer as a medium? What temporal possibilities are to be discovered within it? And how does the concept of time affect our present experience of time? With basis in experimental psychology, abstractions and algorithms, Krasnik explores the space in a 3D computer animation and the temporality inherent in the creation of them. Krasnik's artworks are an exploration of the apparently endless possibilities of 3D computer animations and their ability to carry on ad infinitum in both time and space. These qualities allow for representation that is not dependent on limited by an external world. As opposed to the time inherent in a photograph, which is attached to our bodies and ephemerality, the time in a 3D computer animation is therefore more abstract, individual, and fluid. For the exhibition, Krasnik will create a site-specific installation for the gallery space, which tie the physical space to the abstractions of the 3D computer animations. In conjunction with the exhibition, a symposium about Time and Technology will be organised in collaboration with Aarhus University. The symposium will focus on time – both as an inner physiological and psychological experience and as an exterior factor created in a conversation between human beings.  About the Artist Rebecca Krasnik is a Danish Visual Artist. She has an MFA in Photography, Video and Related Media from School of Visual Arts, New York City, USA. Krasnik's art has been exhibited in New York, London, Copenhagen, and more. Her exhibition at Galleri Image will be her first solo show in Aarhus. Read more on the artist's website: www.rebeccakrasnik.info The exhibition is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation

    Galleri Image presents the exhibition The Color of Water by the American artist Sarah Schorr. The Color of Water is an investigation of one of our life sustaining elements: water. What is the color of water? The answer is part science and part emotion; ye
    t the answer is elusive and shifting. Through the dual processes of examining gradations of color and gradations of emotion, Schorr follows the ephemeral refractions of light and mood in water. How will we preserve this resource for future generations? Opaque, transparent, or translucent, entering water can delineate both a physical passage and a metaphysical pathway. The point of ingress creates surface tension. A shift in pressure causes liquid to quiver as it is pierced. Air is reduced and then removed. Sound changes: Music becomes obscured and redacted. Silver to black to emerald green: Water is often not blue. Sometimes the sea is a rolling red from deep sea algae. Assisted by the waterscape, these transitions open us to different reflective experiences, sparking introspection about attention, physicality, and mobility in our media-saturated landscape. Schorr’s work does not answer the rhetorical question: what is the color of water? Instead, this project is an invitation to engage in a process of inquiry and contemplation. The Color of Water project grew out of Schorr's introduction to winter swimming near Aarhus. She found herself repeatedly drawn to the stark beauty of Ballehage beach in all seasons. Thus, began a photographic exploration of water and the reflexive states that it encourages. The Color of Water is composed of interrelated bodies of work by Schorr: Osmosis, Riptide, and Ephemeral Metallics. The exhibition also includes The Color of Water: Algorithmic Sea, a work and performance is developed in collaboration with Gabriel Pereira and Carlos Oliveira. A seminar and different workshops will be arranged during the exhibition period. These include Schorr's M.I.N.T workshop for youth, which invites participants to slow down to experience nature, and her interactive performance The Color of Water: Algorithmic Sea that investigates the subjective nature of color, the permeability of images and our subtle acceptance of the pervasive digitization of our experiences. The exhibition is supported by the Statens Kunstfonds and Kulturudviklingspuljen. About the artist: Sarah Schorr is an American photographic artist, researcher, and educator. Schorr’s work has been widely exhibited with solo shows at esteemed spaces such as Yancey Richardson Gallery and Scalo Project Space in New York City. Her photographic art has been selected for juried group exhibitions by notable curators such as Elizabeth Avedon and Paula Tognarelli. In 2020, Schorr’s work was honored by the Julia Margaret Cameron Award for women photographers (first prize) in the category of nude with an exhibition at the Fotonostrum Gallery in Barcelona and a Terra Foundation Fellowship residency (postponed to 2021). A catalogue of Schorr’s current work, The Color of Water, will be published by Galleri Image to accompany a forthcoming (2021) solo show of her work and travel (2022) to the Northern Photographic Centre in Finland. Since earning her PhD in 2017, her research examines photographic practice as a mode of contemplation and sense making. Schorr currently lives in Denmark where she works (and swims). You can visit the artist's website www.sarahschorr.com for more information
