SOLO SHOW: TROELS STEENHOLDT HEIREDAL – LOOKING INTO LOOKING

TROELS STEENHOLDT HEIREDAL – LOOKING INTO LOOKING

Sept 17 – Nov 13, 2021

“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.

WINTER LIGHT 2020

WINTER LIGHT 20210

November 13 – December 18, 2020

Whilst 2020 comes to an end, In The Gallery would like to invite you to the new exhibition Winter Light 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.

Maibritt Rangstrup explores the concept of an “urban nature” and how artificial light impacts our perception of the outdoor spaces we inhabit. Her paintings holds clear reference to contemporary photography and its modes of composition, and to the staging of the image in our culture.

SOLO SHOW: UNTITLED

SOLO SHOW: UNTITLED

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.

 

THE LITTLE ONES

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.

PAST PRESENT

PAST PRESENT

March 5 – May 9, 2020

Past Present
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.

JACOB JØRGENSEN: OBSERVATIONS OF LIGHT

JACOB JØRGENSEN: OBSERVATIONS OF LIGHT

10.10. – 23.11.2019
Opening Wednesday the 9th of October 5pm – 7pm.

Jacob Jørgensen’s works provide an insight into humans and the cultures and environments that surround us. His filmic portraits include cultural personalities such as Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark, artist Olafur Eliasson, actress Ghita Nørby, architect Henning Larsen and shipping magnate Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller. Here the viewer is invited into both their work as well as their inner thought processes and emotional life.

Jørgensen masters the act of giving his subject the space to unfold its true nature. The same can be said about his his photographic works, where rather than focusing in on the individual, the attention centres around the composition, light and the tension which occurs in the moment. For this exhibition Jacob Jørgensen is also showing the video piece The Rain, which Politiken’s art critic Peter Michael Hornung awarded “the honor of being the most poetic work” at the Corner 2011 exhibition at Sophienholm.
