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.



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.



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.



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.
