    This May, Galleri Image has invited renowned Chinese artist Wang Ningde to Aarhus, in connection with his exhibition No Name, which opens 16-18 on 1 May 2020. The exhibition is part of a festival celebrating the 70th anniversary of the diplomatic rel
    ationship between Denmark and China, which is organised by Galleri Image in collaboration with Aarhus University, The Women's Museum, Øst for Paradis, LiteratureXchange and Folkeuniversitetet, Aarhus. The festival will, among other things, include a symposium on 4 May, a talk and tour about the exhibition at Galleri Image on 28 May and a film showing in October.       Since 2015, the Chinese artist Wang Ningde has visited different cities in China and photographically collected thousands of paint smears in urban spaces, organizing them into formal categories, and then using them to cover over photographs found on the Internet. Wang Ningde photographs the paint smears and through digital photo editing reutilizes them in composite photographic pieces that resemble something more akin to paintings — where the original subjects are slowly but surely hidden away. Distinctive markings can frequently be seen on the walls of public spaces in many Chinese cities. These markings are the result of paint that has been applied to cover over informal advertisements. The content of these small advertisements ranges from plumbing and locksmith services ads, to selling fake medicine, drugs, or even want ads for sex partners. Due to the rapid proliferation of such illicit postings, city management must hire staff to deal with them. The resulting paint smudges, sometimes blending in with the background wall, sometimes wildly prominent and gestural, become an efficient and cautionary way to cover them up. A record of confrontation and contradiction between two groups, these paint marks make visible the invisible operation of power.      No Name originates from small instances of contradiction, and points to unnamed mark makers, nameless scenes, unnamed individual participants of group events. Here, the artist uses photographs to cover over images, obtaining a painterly effect, humorously referring to the complex and oft-entangled relationship between photography and painting throughout the history of art.About the Artist: Wang Ningde (b. 1972) graduated from the Photography Department at Luxun Academy of Fine Arts in 1995 and now lives and works in Beijing. Working mainly with photography and installation, Wang is one of the leading artist photographers in contemporary China. Using multiple forms to expand the boundaries of the language of image art, his work foremost explores questions about the language and nature of the photographic image. At the same time, his work manifests a keen subjective sensibility in response to contemporary issues.The exhibition is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, the S.C. Van Foundation, The Aarhus Stiftstidende Foundation and the city of Aarhus (Kulturudviklingspuljen)

    Dette forår har Galleri Image inviteret den anerkendte kinesiske kunstner Wang Ningde til Aarhus i forbindelse med hans udstilling “No Name”, som har fernisering kl. 16-18 d. 1. Maj 2020. Udstillingen er en del af en festival der fejrer 70året for de
    t diplomatiske forhold mellem Danmark og Kina, som er arrangeret af Galleri Image i samarbejde med Aarhus Universitet, Kvindemuseet, Øst for Paradis, LiteratureXchange og Folkeuniversitetet, Aarhus. Festivalen vil bl.a. indebære et symposium d. 4. maj, et oplæg og omvisning på Galleri Image d. 28. maj, og filmvisning i Øst for Paradis i uge 42. Siden 2015 har kunstneren Wang Ningde besøgt forskellige byer i Kina og foretaget en fotografisk indsamling af tusinde overmalinger i byrummet, organiseret dem i formelle kategorier og brugt dem til at tildække fotografier fundet på internettet. Wang Ningde fotograferer malingpletterne og genanvender, ved hjælp af digital billedredigering, penselstrøgene i fotografiske værker, der til slut snarere ligner malerier – hvor de oprindelige motiver er blevet langsomt, men sikkert udvisket. Overmalingerne Wang Ningde har indsamlet er en bevidnelse af en konfrontation mellem den kinesiske stat og illegale aktører. I mange kinesiske byer må man kun hænge reklamer op på dertil anviste pladser i byrummet, og af den grund vælger mange at sætte deres reklamebeskeder (for alt fra VVS-arbejde til salg af falsk medicin og seksuelle ydelser) op på ulovlig vis. Imidlertid sørger myndighederne rutinemæssigt for at fjerne dem, ved at overmale de illegale reklamer i nuancer, der sommetider går i et med væggen, men ofte er meget bemærkelsesværdige. Disse markeringer i byrummet er en effektiv og afvarslende måde at overdække beskederne på og synliggør samtidig magtens usynlige handlinger. "No Name" er en sort-humoristisk kommentar på de sjuskede ”forsvindingspunkter” i byrummet, der klodset vidner om en bagvedliggende magtudøvelse. Den maleriske effekt der opnås, når kunstneren bruger fotografier til at tildække billeder, refererer med et glimt i øjet til det komplekse og ofte sammenviklede forhold mellem fotografi og maleri gennem kunsthistorien. Om Wang Ningde: Wang Ningde (f. 1972) blev uddannet ved Photography Department ved Luxun Academy of Fine Arts i 1995 og arbejder nu i Beijing. Han arbejder hovedsageligt med fotografi og installation, og er en af de førende fotografiske samtidskunstnere i Kina. Ved at bruge adskillige kunstformer til at udvide grænserne for billedkunstens sprog, udforsker hans værker spørgsmål vedrørende kunst og natur i det fotografiske billede. Samtidigt manifesterer hans arbejde en livlig subjektiv sensibilitet, der besvarer nutidige problematikker.Udstillingen er støttet af Statens Kunstfond, S. C. Van Fonden, Aarhus Stiftstidendes Fond og Aarhus Kommune (Kulturudviklingspuljen)

    From 16-18 on 10 January 2020, Galleri Image will host the opening of visual artist Sasha Huber’s first solo exhibition in Denmark. The artist will be present and Esa Alanne from the Finnish Cultural Institute in Denmark will present the opening of the ex
    hibition. On 11 January at 14, Galleri Image will host an artist talk with Sasha Huber.AGASSIZ (ALL) OVER by Sasha Huber is an exhibition presenting a selection of her artistic contributions to the long-term project and activist campaign “Demounting Louis Agassiz” (which was founded by historian and activist Hans Fässler in 2007), focusing on her work in New Zealand and Switzerland. The project’s goal is to challenge the ongoing celebration of Swiss-born naturalist and glaciologist Louis Agassiz – an influential racist and pioneering thinker of apartheid. The focal point of AGASSIZ (ALL) OVER is the video piece Karakia - the resetting ceremony, in which Sasha Huber, accompanied by greenstone carver Mr. Jeff Mahuika (Kāti Māhaki, Poutini Kāi Tahu), unnames an Aotearoa New Zealand glacier, which had previously been named after Louis Agassiz. This “unnaming” is reminiscent of one of the first actions of protest in the campaign, which revolved around the renaming of Agassizhorn, a mountain top in the Swiss alps, to Rentyhorn. The name-change was in honour of Renty, an enslaved man from Congo, who Agassiz commissioned the photographer Joseph T. Zealy to photograph in 1850, and the new name was emblematic of the silent and anonymous victims of racism. Alongside the Karakia video, AGASSIZ (ALL) OVER features a series of posters with the title Agassiz Down Under, which juxtapose archival photographs of a statue of Agassiz that has fallen on its head with the mission of “Demounting Louis Agassiz” campaign and facts about institutionalized racism. The exhibition will also display the ambrotype series Evidence, and the fictional lecture My racism is a humanism written by Agassiz scholar and "Demounting Louis Agassiz" committee member Hans Barth, and performed by the actor Thomas Götz, in which Agassiz attempts to vindicate himself and his theories.Sasha Huber has worked with the “Demounting Louis Agassiz” campaign since 2008, and has continued the project in several other countries such as Brazil, Scotland, USA and Canada, where she has used her voice and body to mediate the ways in which the historic narrative was lacking. About the Artist:Sasha Huber is a visual artist of Swiss-Haitian heritage, born in Zurich, Switzerland in 1975. She is currently based in Helsinki, Finland and holds an MA from the University of Art and Design in Helsinki (presently University of Arts). Huber's work is primarily concerned with the politics of memory and belonging, particularly in relation to colonial residue left in the environment. She is occupied with the underlying subtle threads that connect the past with the present and works with performance-based interventions, videos, photography, archival materials, collaborations and publications. Huber has had solo exhibitions at the Hasselblad Foundation Project Room in Gothenburg, and has participated in numerous international art festivals such as the 29th Biennial of São Paulo in 2010, the 19th Biennale of Sydney in 2014 and the 56th la Biennale di Venezia in 2015 (collateral exhibition: Frontier Reimagined). In 2018, Huber received the State Art Award in the category visual arts given by the Arts Promotion Centre, Finland. In 2018, Huber received the State Art Award in the category visual arts given by the Arts Promotion Centre, Finland. Presently, Huber is undertaking practice-based PhD studies at the Department of Art and Media at the Zurich University of the ArtsThe exhibition is supported by The Danish Arts Foundation, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia and The Finnish Cultural Institute in Denmark. Image: Sasha Huber, KARAKIA The Resetting Ceremony, video 4:30 min, Still photo by Tom Hoyle, 2015

    Sted: Galleri Image, Vestergade 29, 8000 Aarhus C.
    Fra 16-18 d. 10. januar har Galleri Image fernisering på billedkunstneren Sasha Hubers første soloudstilling i Danmark. Kunstneren vil være tilstede, og Esa Alanne fra Det Finske Kulturinstitut i Danmark vil åbne udstillingen. Kl 14 d. 11. januar afh
    older Sasha Huber en artist talk i Galleri mage.  Udstillingen AGASSIZ (ALL) OVER præsenterer en række af Sasha Hubers kunstneriske bidrag til langtidsprojektet og aktivistkampagnen ”Demounting Louis Agassiz” (som blev påbegyndt af historikeren Hans Fässler i 2007), med udgangspunkt i hendes arbejde i New Zealand og Schweiz. Projektets mål er at udfordre den igangværende fejring af schweiziskfødte naturforsker og glaciolog, Louis Agassiz – en indflydelsesrig racist og pionerende tænker indenfor apartheid. Hovedværket i AGASSIZ (ALL) OVER er videoen KARAKIA – the resetting ceremony, hvori Sasha Huber, ledsaget af Jeff Mahuika (Kāti Māhaki, Poutini Kāi Tahu), udfører en navnefratagelse af en Aotearoa New Zealand gletsjer, som tidligere har været navngivet efter Louis Agassiz. Denne “navnefratagelse,” minder om en af Hubers første protestaktioner i kampagnen, som havde til formål at omdøbe Agassizhorn, en bjergtop i de schweiziske alper, til Rentyhorn. Dette var en hyldest til Renty, en mandlig slave fra Congo, som Agassiz egen fotograf Joseph T. Zealy fotograferede i 1850, og det nye navn skulle symbolisere racismens tavse og anonyme ofre.Udover Karakia videoen, vil AGASSIZ (ALL) OVER fremvise en række plakater med titlen Agassiz Down Under, som sidestiller arkivariske fotografier af en Agassizstatue der er faldet på dens hoved med “Demounting Louis Agassiz” kampagnens målsætninger og fakta om racisme. Udstilling vil også fremsætte en serie ambrotypier under navnet Evidence, og den fiktive forelæsning My Racism is a Humanism, som er skrevet af Agassizforskeren som også er et medlem af "Demounting Louig Agassiz" kommitteen, Hans Barth og fremført af skuespilleren Thomas Götz, hvori Agassiz forsøger at retfærdiggøre sig selv og sine teorier.   Sasha Huber har arbejdet med “Demounting Louis Agassiz” projektet siden 2008, og har fortsat projektet i en række andre lande såsom Brasilien, Skotland, USA, og Canada, hvor hun har brugt sin stemme og krop til at formidle historiens mangelfulde fortælling. Om Kunstneren:Sasha Huber er en billedkunstner af schweizisk-haitisk herkomst, født i Zürich, Schweiz i 1975. Hun bor og arbejder i Helsinki, Finland, og har en kandidatgrad fra University of Art and Design i Helsinki (University of Arts). Huber er optaget af de underliggende, subtile tråde, der forbinder fortiden med nutiden, og arbejder med performancebaserede interventioner, video, fotografi, arkivmaterialer og publikationer. Omdrejningspunktet for hendes arbejde er erindringspolitik og tilhørsforhold, især i relation til kolonialismens efterladenskaber i vores omgivelser. Huber har haft soloudstillinger både ved Hasselblad Centeret i Göteborg og har også deltaget i flere internationale kunstfestivaler som f.eks. São Paulo Biennalen 2010, Sydneybiennalen i 2014 og Venedig Biennalen i 2015. I 2018 modtog Huber the State Art Award i kategorien billedkunst af the Arts Promotion Centre, Finland. Huber tager desuden i dag en praksisbaseret PhD ved Afdelingen for Kunst og Medier ved Zurich Kunstuniversitet. Udstillingen er støttet af Statens Kunstfond, det Schweiziske Kunstråd Pro Helvetia og Finlands Kulturinstitut i Danmark.Billede: Sasha Huber, KARAKIA - The Resetting Ceremony, video 4:30 min, Still af Tom Hoyle, 2015

    Opening: 8 November 16:00 - 18:00 at Galleri Image, Vestergade 29, 8000 Aarhus CGalleri Image hosted Q&A with Ida Nissen and Tom Lovelace, artist and Tutor at the Royal College of Art, London on 9 November 14:00 - 15:00The historical process to date h
    as deposited in you an infinity of traces, without leaving an inventory  – Antonio Gramsci, The Prison Notebooks This show is inspired by Gramsci’s idea that history deposits in us an infinity of traces that ultimately form our identity. However, they lack an inventory in order to give the history shape and sense. The gathering of such inventory can come from traces of heredity, individual and collective traditions, relations or experiences.Compile Your Inventory brings together a series of new works; in which layered analogue colour photograms form an abstract narrative of collages to explore a dynamic of kinship, dislocation and displacement.Drawing inspiration from her South Korean heritage, Nissen sources traces from personal memory and creating an inventory of shapes, signs and symbols, that are related the South Korean traditional culture. These works can be seen as fragments of identity being compiled through reinterpretation and examining the boundaries of what is already known and what is foreign.A driving interest in her practice is the in-between state of the authentic and the constructed, real and imaginative. Photography in particular, becomes a medium that motivates this ambiguity and ultimately forms the narratives and memories, which cannot be represented in language or thought.Bio: Ida Nissen lives and works in London. She studied at Valand Academy in Gothenburg and is a recent graduate from Royal College of Art in London. Nissen works with photography and has exhibited widely in Europe. More recent exhibitions and publications include: Somerset House, Photo London; European Parallel Platform: Lisbon, Lodz, Zagreb; Entrée, Bergen; Raumflucht, LAABF, US; Skape Gallery, Seoul, KOR; Sirin, Copenhagen, DK.

    ocess to date has deposited in you an infinity of traces, without leaving an inventory  – Antonio Gramsci I denne udstilling, inspireret af forfatteren Antonio Gramsci, udforsker Ida Nissen et manglende indeks over de mange spor som aflejrer sig i os. Arvelighed, individuel og kollektiv erfaring, traditioner og relationer former tilsammen en historie, og at udarbejde en fortegnelse over den, er ifølge Gramsci den vigtigste opgave i at fortolke og give den form og betydning. Compile Your Inventory viser en række helt nye værker, der med brug af farvefotogrammer og collage former et abstrakt narrativ og ønsker at invitere til refleksion over tilhørsforhold, forskydning og transformation. Gennem inspiration fra sin sydkoreanske arv og personlige erindring udarbejder Nissen et indeks hvor former, tegn og symboler er relateret til den sydkoreanske traditionelle kultur. Værkerne kan ses som fragmenter af identitet, som ordnes og genfortolkes, og således kan forskyde grænsen for det, der allerede er velkendt, og det som forekommer fremmed.  Nissens praksis er drevet af interessen for et mellemværende mellem det autentiske og det konstruerede, virkelige og imaginære. Fotografi bliver et medium, der motiverer denne dobbelthed og på sigt udnyttes til at oversætte fortællinger og erindringer, som ikke kan sprogliggøres. Bio:Den danske kunstner Ida Nissen bor og arbejder i London. Hun har studeret ved Akademin Valand i Göteborg og Royal College of Art i London. Nissen arbejder med fotografi og har udstillet bredt i Europa.
