WINTER LIGHT 2021

WINTER LIGHT 2021

November 4 – December 23, 2021

In The Gallery would like to invite you to the exhibition Winter Light 2021, highlighting the work of some of the artists of the gallery and invited artists.

The longing for light reflects the current time of year, but it also makes reference to the necessity of it in the photographic process. We are presenting both smaller format photographic work in combination with oil paintings, each with their intensity of color and vibrant surfaces and also small scale sculptures in classical materials.

Lise Johansson recently won the prestigious international photo prize IPA under the category Fine Art Photography and she previously became Photographer of the Year in the International Color Award, and the achievement is well constituted in her work with its subtle tones and refined use of color and light.

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.

Rikke Flensberg’s practice focuses on the relationship between reality and the human being and a study of this with different approaches. She builds up her material in a new context, using instruments such as reflection, displacement and repetition.

Jacob Gils’ city and naturescapes deal with the exploration of light and time in his chosen spaces with his use of multiple exposures, and the 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.

Merete Hansen’s practice is rooted in the figurative painting tradition. She uses a strong color palette and at times very thick layers of oil paint. Merete is interested in the investigation into composition, paint and her nearby or domestic surroundings, which is transformed into intense color and form experiences.

Jens-Peter Kellermann took part in our previous exhibition together with Merete. His sculptures are often made in classical materials such as bronze, marble and copper exploring a relationship between the human form, classical fragments of architecture in an interplay with small scale animals.

SUMMER LIGHT

SUMMER LIGHT

July 29 – September 10, 2021

With the desired return of bright summer light and its ability to energize, reveal details and impact our perception of space, In The Gallery is bringing together three young artists, whom in each their own refined way presents work with a particular and unique understanding of light and space.

Rikke Flensberg works with images of the transcendence between reality and the human being and our perception of body, borders and human perception in her poetic and visually strong imagery and pale landscapes. Fragments of body turn into tectonic surfaces, erupting and shifting. Elements from nature are pushed into new forms, through which our bodily self can physically relate, and we are reminded of the inherent relationship held between the human body and the world which surrounds it.

Lea Jessen’s ability to present colorful and vibrant observations of space and surface and her attention to small, yet remarkable details is fully present in her work. With their focus on clean lines and abstract color planes, these anonymous architectural fragments take on a minimalist aesthetic, making them reminiscent of the concrete art of the 1940’s and 50’s. In The Gallery is presenting both Lea’s architectural spaces and her work of dreamlike holiday settings with their magical light, spaces and surfaces.

Lise Johansson won Photographer of the Year in the International Color Award last year, and the achievement is well constituted in her work with its subtle tones and refined use of color and light. Lise is presenting the work Absence, originally made for an exhibition at Hofteatret, as a self-staged portrait. Most recently Lise has developed a new series under the title Resort which explores leisure spaces and how the boundaries between public and the private spaces are interwoven.

We look forward to welcoming you to In The Gallery.

Winners

ART CENTRAL COPENHAGEN

ART CENTRAL HONG KONG

May 21 – June 18, 2021

As part of the Hong Kong Art Week every Spring, Art Central is a major fair in the region. In The Gallery has had the opportunity to participate several times over the last few years and with great success, and 2021 was supposed to be no different.

We find it vital to present our artists to an international audience, and to take part in the cultural and artistic exchanges of concepts with their individualistic and multifaceted expressions. Art Central is held at the same time as Art Basel Hong Kong, and we were excited to have been accepted again this year and were looking forward to presenting our artist’s work to new audiences and collectors.

However, this year our participation has been unfortunately postponed until next Spring due to the current travel restrictions, and we are therefore presenting some of this same work at our Copenhagen gallery concurrently with the Art Central opening this week.

We look forward to welcoming you to In The Gallery.

ZONAMACO COPENHAGEN

ZONAMACO MEXICO CITY

April 29 – May 20, 2021

In The Gallery participates in international art fairs several times each year in order to present our artists to an international audience, and to take part in these cultural and artistic exchanges of concepts with their individual and multifaceted expressions. This has taken us to cities such as Shanghai, Hong Kong, Miami, San Francisco, LA, New York, Seoul, Milan, Basel, Monaco and Paris and has connected us to new audiences and collectors and has generated very good press and media coverage for the gallery and for our artists. This year was supposed to be no different with our planned participation at Zonamaco Mexico City in April. Interrupted plans and rescheduled events have unfortunately been recurrent during the last year under the pandemic. Due to this we have decided to make a presentation of the work we originally submitted for this year’s Zonamaco Mexico City. We welcome you to In The Gallery for a presentation of the work of Jacob Gils.

ART ON PAPER

ART ON PAPER

March 12 – April 22, 2021

The fascination with paper and the multifunctional use of it can be traced back several millennia. Originally invented in Egypt and made with fibers of the Papyrus plant, the type found in China several thousand years later is closer to the type of paper we still use today. The versatile qualities and subtleness of the material makes it a popular material for artmaking, both historically and within a contemporary context. The exhibition Art on Paper explores differing approaches to the use of paper as a medium, with its main focus being on photography and lithography as well as paper as a material unto itself, and the timeless, multifaceted expressions of its use. Artists: Lise Johansson, Jacob Gils and Stephan Schnedler.
