AMAZONIC RAINFOREST

AMAZONICA RAINFOREST

November – December, 2023

Camila Echavarría’s artwork resonates with the resilient heartbeat of Medellin-Colombia, once scarred by the shadows of its past as the world’s most violent city, now illuminated in her vibrant hues. With her brush, barcodes intertwine with nature, guiding viewers into a realm where the known merges with the unknown, inviting profound contemplation. Guided by the intricate dance of Fibonacci, her art achieves a meticulous harmony amidst chaos, a testament to the wonder of mathematics interwoven with creativity.

As she cycles through the Colombian mountains, she discovers the most colorful flowers and trees, inspiring her black and white artworks speckled with vibrant spots – mimicking nature’s strategy,with color spots in the dense forest, attracting the most beautiful birds. This artistic innovation reflects her belief that within life’s challenges lies an enduring, enchanting splendor waiting to be discovered.

Camila’s artistry has earned her the title of Artist of the Year 2023 at the DSWF exhibition in London. She has also showcased her work in exhibitions across Copenhagen, Mallorca, Miami, and Medellin, and shows such as Miami Art, Palm Beach Art, and Wynwood Art.

THROUGH HER LENS

THROUGH HER LENS

September 27 – November 30, 2023

In The Gallery is proud to present ‘Through Her Lens’, a group exhibition dedicated to showcasing talented women photographers from Denmark and abroad. Women photographers and artists receive far less attention today and we find it vital to reflect on this imbalance thus this exhibition aims to promote and widen the knowledge of three women photographers and the representation of their work.

The exhibition invites the viewer to see the world through her lens and engage in their personal and poetic narratives. The starting point for each artist is the portrait which they investigate in various ways. Lise Johansson’s works are self-portraits that explore what it means to feel at home and delve into concepts of identity and place of belonging. Andrea Torres Balaguer experiments with materialities and challenges the traditional notion of a portrait by intervening the photograph with a unique brushstroke across the subject’s face in post-production. Camila Fenster is particularly interested in textures, shapes, and objects which she uses to create photomontage portraits of doll-like humans. All artists remain close to a poetic and subtle perspective of the world and find their inspiration in the borderland between the conscious and the unconscious mind – creating a sense of distorted reality that encourages the viewer to look closer. They explore dreams, the surreal, and the uncanny, combining familiar concepts in unexpected ways that challenge our conventional ways of perceiving photographic portraiture. The viewer is left to create their own interpretation and decipher for themselves what is real and what is fiction.

Artists presented : Andrea Torres Balaguer (ES), Camila Fenster (PT/DK), Lise Johansson (DK)

SUMMER EXHIBITION 2023

SUMMER EXHIBITION

July 15 – September 16th, 2023

This year’s Summer Exhibition presents a curated selection of artworks by artists with whom the gallery has established longstanding collaborations, along with an exciting new addition. All three artists share a common theme and explore the sublime, the beautiful, and the picturesque facets of nature- and cityscapes with an ambition to evoke intense emotions and inspire awe through aesthetic and visual experiences. The exhibition portrays the powerful and omnipresent nature found in Northern Norway and Iceland, bearing the traces of old, abandoned houses as well as the dynamic ever-changing cityscapes of the vibrant metropolises – all seen through a personal lens and captured with each artist’s own distinctive approach. 

Artists presented: Rune Werner Molnes, Jacob Gils and Julien Mauve.

Rune Werner Molnes (b. 1978) conveys the soul of buildings and the memory of a culture in his series “Entropy”. Each photograph is a portrait of an old, abandoned house along the coast of Northern Norway or Iceland. Some are right out depressing or melancholic, others are charming or inspirational. All with a very strong graphic appeal. 

Jacob Gils (b. 1963) uncovers the beauty of various city- and naturescapes. Through his use of multiple exposures, he explores the boundaries of the photographic medium and challenges the viewer’s perception of light, space, and color. Each piece consists of a multitude of fleeting moments layered into a single image, with an almost painterly finesse. 

Julien Mauve (b. 1984) creates photographic narratives in the borderland between dream and reality. His works convey a twilight mood in which the beautiful merges with the unsettling. The blue darkness disrupted by singular or mysterious light sources creates a filmic atmosphere and underlines the symbolic meaning of light as the source of life, hope, and human presence. 

WINTER LIGHT 2022 – 2023

WINTER LIGHT 2022

December – February, 2023

As a conclusion of 2022, whilst darkness still dominates the hours of the day, In The Gallery would like to invite you in for the exhibition Winter Light.

The longing for light reflects the current time of year, but it also makes reference to the necessity of it in the photographic process. For this edition of our winter exhibition, we would like to present works by artists whom the gallery has long-standing collaborations with as well as a few new additions. We are presenting both smaller format photographic work in combination with oil paintings, each with their intensity of color and vibrant surfaces.

All of the works are in smaller formats, with a price range to match, perfect for an end of the year gift.

Artists presented:

Jacob GILS | Lea JESSEN | Lise JOHANSSON | Søren SOLKÆR | Julien MAUVE | Steen LARSEN | Dan LAUSTSEN | Carsten INGEMANN | Werner VAN RECK | Michael AHLEFELDT |

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.
