November 13 – December 18, 2020

The longing for light reflects the current time of year, but light also makes reference to the necessity of it in the photographic process and as a concept being explored in various ways in the work of the selected artists. Represented in this, our last show of the year, are artists whom the gallery has long-standing collaborations with as well as invited artists.

All of the works presented are in smaller formats, with a price range to match.

Stephan Schnedler’s scenographic images of small models of modernist architectural rooms and surfaces plays with light and shadow, and on their influence on our perception of scale.

Carsten Ingemann’s evocative darkened images devoid of human presence induce a strong sense of mystery with their cinematic framing of the image, darkness and dimmed, yet essential, refined sense of light.

Jacob Gils’ city and naturescapes deal with the exploration of light and time in his chosen spaces through the use of multiple exposures, and their impact on our perception of color. Through this Gils intensifies the experience of the place and brings our attention to its unique beauty and the atmosphere.

Troels Steenholdt Heiredal’s conceptual approach to photography manifests itself through his capturing of the sky of New York by using cutouts of geometrical shapes which the light is then filtered through in-camera, resulting in an abstraction of the representational image.

“Our external world is reconstructed within us as we pass through it. Its impact goes beyond its ability to shape our exterior experience; it also transforms our interior spaces—our personal relation to the world around us. How this transformation occurs and what it builds in us is at the heart of my practice.” Troels Steenholdt Heiredal

Troels Steenholdt Heiredal makes sense of the world by rearranging it. Objects on his desk, lines in a poem, spaces in a photograph. Recently learning that he is on the autistic spectrum disorder [ASD], Heiredal is currently coming to terms with what this means for him both personally and artistically. Looking back at his work, what impact has ASD had on his way of experiencing and capturing the world around him?

‘Looking Into Looking’ will bring together three distinct projects from the last five years. Though individually created, each project reveals aspects of Heiredal’s view of the world around him, and shows his ability to reconstruct it on film. Aspects of each project are reflected in the other two; together this builds a larger space between them.

Juxtaposing photographs and making multiple exposures inside the camera become a way for Heiredal to build works with his subjects—co-creating them as expressions of his inner geographies. In doing so, Heiredal finds ways to express the spaces within him.

Heiredal is often looking for traces left by people, the residue of their interactions with the environment. And while people never feature in his work, there is always a strong human presence—as if they have just left the frame and are now standing next to you, engaging you in a silent conversation about what you’re looking at.

Heiredal uses poems as a reconstruction of language—a search for voice. The poems have internal logic that follows Heiredal’s obsession with aligning shapes and building new spaces. A dialogue between the poems and the photos opens the work to new views and interpretations.

‘Looking Into Looking’ is an invitation to inhabit how Heiredal relates to the world. A plea to reject normative ways of seeing, to wrestle with complexity, and to find beauty in messy layers and reframed forms.



March 5 – May 9, 2020

 Based on recent works of some of our key artists, the exhibition explores timeless settings and fleeting moments, all taken in various different places and through various different approaches to the photographic medium. All works have been shown earlier at solo exhibitions of each of the artists. As the title indicates, the passage of time is essential to the curating of the works selected for Past Present, and to how these works serve to merge the past with the timeless.

January 9 – Feb 29, 2020

True to tradition we are presenting our annual solo exhibition by Jacob Gils.

As well as showing a range of new ambitious pieces from his two famous series, MOVEMENT and LIMIT TO YOUR LOVE, Gils introduces a brand new series, UNTITLED, for the first time. This series depicts the artist’s visceral and experimental investigations into geometric shapes and suggestive surfaces and are all part of his experimental and playful approach to modern photography.

By giving the title “Untitled” the early minimalists reduced their objects and aesthetics down to a pure essence – language became superfluous. Likewise, UNTITLED wishes to give space for the viewer to experience the work on own terms. It is a generous invitation from a multi-faceted artist with whom the gallery has worked since its very beginning.

With this exhibition we are delighted to welcome you to a new year In The Gallery.



28 November – 04 January 2020

We are pleased to present a selection of small sizes works by Jacob GILS.
