Time is an ocean that ends on the beach’  Bob Dylan

Water is poetry. Sometimes hard and sharp, other times soft and elegant. Werner wandered along the coasts of Europe. Sometimes it was rough, then calm or everything in between. Yet the washing water always touched its inseparable companion: the land.

A perpetual motion of attraction and withdrawal, a flirtatious waterline. Fascinated, he looks at the water and documents what it does to people. Beaches and shores that seem to offer people time, needed to come to themselves. He immortalizes their moments of reflections.

Reflections that create subdued emotions, bring cheerful relation to life or evoke melancholy memories.

I’M NOT HERE by LISE JOHANSSON

I'M NOT HERE by LISE JOHANSSON

April 1st -April 20, 2022

Online exhibition on ARTSY – https://www.artsy.net/partner/in-the-gallery

In The Gallery is delighted to present new series “I’m not here” by Lise Johansson.

“I’m not here” is a series of self-portraits photographed in an abandoned hospital. The project is a reflection on mental illness and about identity in a state of transition.

Being in a void between the old and the new, this rite of passage is a vulnerable place. The surroundings can become fluid and one may find themself now completely reset without status or identity. What was before and what will come after?
This transition between two states of being can incite both an aching and unease to return to what one once was but often are unable to return to again.

SELECTED WORKS by JACOB GILS

SELECTED WORKS by JACOB GILS

March 5 -April 30, 2022

We are happy to present a selection of works by Danish photographer Jacob GILS from his series Mouvement and Transfer.

Jacob Gils´ photographs, equally analogue and digital in origin, embody a strong awareness of perfect technique and composition. The artist´s significant almost impressionistic style of iconic structures and sights makes his photographic works stand out with their layered production technique. The used polarisation method and multiple exposures generate engaging photographic interpretations that are organic and sensuous to the eye. Fragmented, draped and distorted they demand the onlooker to not only look at them, but also to get closer and pay more attention to the details as they never reveal themselves at a distance.

Movement is a series which combines a strong aesthetical point of view with meticulous attention to technical detail. As the title indicates, the series is concerned with giving shape to temporal and spatial aspects inherent in all visual experience.

Transfer series are polaroids transferred onto watercolour paper. Through this technique a particularly atmospheric and dreamy mood arises. Upon closer inspection, however, the eye begins to decode that in these works there are real places depicted, all with their special characteristics. 

WINTER LIGHT 2021

WINTER LIGHT 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 andalso small scale sculptures in classical materials.

Lise Johansson recently won the prestigious international photo prize IPA under the category Fine Art Photographyand 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.

SUMMER LIGHT 2021

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.
