    Through various “historical” analogue techniques, Ida Nissen re-investigates the space between the visible and the invisible; a magical space, where new visual phenomena can occur. Central is a series of colour photo frames produced in the closed off sphe
    re of a dark room, without the use of a camera. The process of creation in the dark room will be reflected in the spatial installation and special light fixtures surrounding it in complementary colours.

    A Butterfly flapping its wings can be the cause of a hurricane on the other side of the Earth. That is a popular interpretation of chaos theory, which describes how small changes at the beginning of a process can have significant effect later on. The
    exhibition BLOWN AWAY is influenced by chaos theory and addresses the ways in which human actions can affect our surroundings and have more impactful consequences than can be predicted. Do we have enough understanding of the fact that we are a global community in which everyone and everything is affected? How do we part with the things that are disappearing as a result of our actions? Klejs refers to her video installation as a Butterfly Necropolis because it consists of a video archive depicting colors and patterns from the more than 12 species of butterflies that have gone extinct in Denmark within a short period of time due to changes in their living conditions. Butterflies are called nature’s thermometers because they react quickly to environmental changes. Farming of more land and climate changes affect flora and fauna and more than half of the butterfly species here in Denmark are therefore vulnerable or threatened by extinction. In the exhibition extinct species are depicted with colored sand, like Buddhist sand mandalas – a tradition that is meant to remind us that nothing lasts forever, where monks carefully create large symmetrical images with colored sand that are then destroyed during a ritual, after which the sand is distributed in nature.In BLOWN AWAY the butterfly images are blown away. The wind is derived from wind data in real time from the sea southeast of New Zealand – literally on the other side of the planet. In this way, the direct effect caused by wind conditions from far away is made visible.Klejs’ latest works all deal with variability as a result of changes in the surrounding environment. She has used data from sources such as the setting sun and local wind conditions, seeking to depict the relationship between environment (nature) and artwork (culture).Opening: Friday 13 September 2019 from 4-6 pm at Galleri Image, Vestergade 29, 8000 Aarhus CSeminar about the exhibition with professor in digital aesthetics and design Lone Koefoed Hansen, butterfly expert Anne Erlend Eskildsen and artist Signe Klejs Saturday 28 September ay 2 pm at Galleri Image.Signe Klejs (b. 1974) is a Danish artist with a master’s in Design with Digital Media from Design School Kolding and Universität der Künste Berlin, where she studied experimental media art. In her work, she challenges the potential in digital art through what she defines as relational encounters between body, space and technology. She works across genres and her work relates to stage art, visual arts, site specific art, installations and transmedia projects. During the European Cultural Capital in Aarhus 2017 Klejs created the piece Hesitation of Light. Since May 2019, her permanent light installation Zeitgeist has been installed on the façade of The Women’s Museum in Aarhus.You can read more on her website: www.cygne.dk A special thanks to CAVI, Aarhus University. The Exhibition is supported by Kulturudviklingspuljen (City of Aarhus), Augustinus Fonden, and the Danish Arts Foundation.

    On Friday August 9th Galleri Image opened the new exhibition Staged Salvations, curated by Lovro Japundžić, which consists of works from three artist selected from the participants in PARALLEL -  European Photo Based Platform's second cycle,&n
    bsp;André Viking (DK), Nils Stelte (DE), and Rocco Venezia (IT). Staged Salvations explores the idea of rituals used as an attempt to overcome the reality that has suddenly become a burden. Our very fragility transforms itself in the productive force that enables separation from the previously practiced patterns. Twisting common modes of perception becomes possible thanks to newly found tactics that can easily disrupt the human mind. Elements of material culture are turned into symbols and creative tools used in performance-like actions that initiate different ways of self-reflection within various communities enabling catharsis and fulfilment. In the quest for self-actualization and self-improvement the body is a primary medium through which a new level of consciousness becomes possible. The exhibition explores themes revolving around rites, rituals and similar acts humans partake in when building up resistancy to the chaos we may experience surrounding us every day. André Viking, Rocco Venezia and Nils Stelte capture such embodiments of individual and collective rituals in the forms of symbols, gestures, expressions, and rhythms. Their work reveals a universal quality in these embodied patterns communicated through performative actions. Rather than depicting clear, linear narratives, these artists introduce incomplete fragments, expressing the liminal quality of rituals in which reality questions itself. Depicted objects and characters can be a part of staged experience or spontaneous and improvised actions that may seem fantastic and dreamlike but are still deeply rooted in common human reality.On Friday August 9th from 4 - 6 pm, the exhibition opened at Galleri Image. On Saturday August 10th at 2 - 3:30 pm, Galleri Image presented talks with Lovro Japundžic and the artists.A catalogue of the same name was published in connection with the exhibition9 August  | 8 September 2019Lovro Japundžić (b. 1990) from Zagreb, Croatia, holds a Master’s in Art History and Sociology.

After graduating from Copenhagen Film & Photography School in 2012, Viking completed the General Studies Program at The International Center of Photography, where he was awarded two ICP Director’s Scholarships. With the strong belief in photography’s subjective yet universal language, André Viking draws from ancient history and myths to explore convoluted relationships between meaning, truth and fiction. Viking’s work has been exhibited internationally, including Copenhagen Photo Festival, Krakow Photomonth, and Filter Space, Chicago. Nils Stelte (b. 1989) is a German Berlin-based photographer. He is a graduate of the Ostkreuz School of Photography where Ute Mahler mentored him and holds a BA in Social Sciences from Humboldt University Berlin.
