    The representation of blindness tends to focus on a marginalized disabled body with a defect, which rarely is viewed from a sensory bodily experience. How does identity exist in a visually dominated culture? And how can the stigmatization of the body with
    visual impairment be highlighted in new ways so that information moves sympathy towards empathy and understanding? This exhibition engages with such complexities and challenges common perceptions of those who are visually impaired. In the exhibition Deconstruction of Already Existing Knowledge of Blindness, the Danish artist Kristina Steinbock investigates the conception of blindness through cinematic, tactile, photographic, auditive and performative works. The viewer and the blind are bodily present in the world in two different ways. Kristina Steinbock collaborates with blind people to provide insight into a world they are otherwise detached from and try to create openings between the two worlds and break down prejudices. The exhibition is created specifically for Galleri Image and is based on several years of study of a world of blindness, where Steinbock tries to establish overlapping areas between theatricality and identity, individual and category, and between documentation and fiction. The audio piece The Space Before Sleep (16 min.) refers to the fact that sleep rhythms are naturally regulated by light. For those who are blind, this presents challenges in that it can be difficult to relate to such rhythmic day-night patterns. The work engages with these themes through three different people addressing: sexuality and blindness, faith and blindness and maternity and blindness. The belief question challenges the literary descriptions of blindness, where Jesus would heal the blind. Sexuality can occur later in the life for the blind because it is harder to read body language and facial expressions when sight is not the primary sense. Motherhood amongst blind mothers and children are based on techniques from hearing and sight. The audio piece is filmically composed of still images and tied together with a voiceover based on the three themes. The woven piece, If You Stare at Me I Luckily Don’t See It, is placed on round wooden sticks and woven with braille by Søren Nilan Nielsen from IBOS. Audiences are welcome to touch the artwork.   Blind Idioms is made of 63 domino tiles in birchwood with letters and braille which are used in a performance by Søren Høg. He will perform in the exhibition period, sitting in silence at a table evoking sentences with biblical references, in which blindness is used as a metaphor for stupidity and uncertainty. The work changes throughout the exhibition period to other literary sentences. Audiences are welcome to touch the artwork.   Home Sweet Home is an audio piece (18 min.) The work is based on descriptions of home as a base and considers home from four different contexts, engaging with ideas around what is a home and how is it organized when seeing is not the principle sense.In the series Untitled Photogravures, noble-print technical imprints of various moods are put into play with themes of life-changing circumstances, which concerns humans and the occurred blindness. Kristina Steinbock often works 'art-antropological' as a field worker and collects knowledge about the environment and the people whom she wishes to portray. It is essential to collaborate with people from the place that she seeks to understand and thereby develop a scene that is traversed by real people. Their professionalism is that they have a lifelong experience with the role they play. This method reinforces the relationship between actor, instructor and the thematic description. In connection with the exhibition, there will be a bookrelease. Keep updated on our website and Facebook for further informations. Steinbock is born in 1974, she lives and works in Copenhagen and has graduated from Glasgow School of Art and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. She works primarily with video and photography and has exhibited in Denmark and several other European countries and, among other things, won the open call at the Silkeborg exhibition and the FOKUS video art award in 2013. In connection with the exhibition, there will be a book release.

    In 2018, Fotobiennalen will be held again in Aarhus, Odense and Copenhagen. As in 2016, when Fotobiennalen first opened, it is a collaboration between Brandts, Fotografisk Center and Galleri Image. Galleri Image contributes to Fotobiennalen with the
    exhibition “New Tactics - moving in a soft field”. The exhibition will be open from August 29th to October 28th 2018. The exhibition explores how visual artists mix photography and other genres to create art in a time where both body and image are transformed through technology. Both bodies and photographs are improved, transformed and further developed into new realities that affect our identity and our culture. The "soft field" of the exhibition points to both the soft surfaces of the body and to software and computer programming. It is in this dynamic field, the exhibiting artists work. They are inspired equally by our classical visual history, but also by facerecognition software on the Internet. The four participating artists are: Kristoffer Ørum (DK), Nanna Lysholt Hansen (DK), Sandra Vaka Olsen (NO) og Valérie Collart (FR). The exhibition is curated by Kirstine Autzen, MA in visual culture, artist and for several years communicator of art and photography. During the exhibition period, we plan several events in Aarhus including a seminar, as well as a publication with in-depth texts and artist interviews. About FotobiennalenThrough three exhibitions and an international symposium, Fotobiennalen will focus on the post-photographic image and photography in an expanded field. The exhibition in Aarhus  "New Tactics - moving in a soft field" and accompanying seminar explores photographic hybrid forms from both a material and a virtual perspective. At Brandts you will meet a large exhibition with 20 artists who investigate the meaning of the digital in regard to our understanding of the photographic image. "Photography to end all photography" is curated by Jesper Rasmussen and Anna Krogh.   Finally, Fotografisk Center presents a solo exhibition with the artist duo AVPD, curated by Kristine Kern. Through spatial settings and experiments, the exhibition will challenge our traditional understanding of photography as created with a camera and bound to a flat surface. As a major part of Fotobiennalen, the three institutions will jointly organize an international full-day symposium in Copenhagen on the post-photographic image in an expanded field. Here you will be able to hear the presentation by international photo theorists and artists as well as some of the biennial's exhibiting artists and other participants who have contributed in various ways to the three exhibitions. Fotobiennalen opens at Galleri Image in Aarhus on Wednesday, 29 August, followed by the opening at Brandts in Odense on Thursday, 30 August. On Friday, 31 August, the international symposium as well as the opening at Fotografisk Center will take place in Copenhagen.A new collaboration with Portfolio DialogueWhen the second edition of Fotobiennalen opens this Fall, photographers and reviewers from all over the world will for the first time be able to take part in an international online portfolio review. Fotobiennalen’s booking site will launch in June 2018 at www.portfoliodialogue.com. Here, photographers will be able to set up online reviews in all of September with a carefully selected reviewer team.   Fotobiennalen's booking site is now live on Portofolio Dialogue's new, redesigned website: www.portfoliodialogue.com/fotobiennalen-2018You can also keep updated on Portofolio Dialogue on Facebook or Twitter.Photo credit: Valérie Collart, udsnit af værket, My eyes coldly stuffed with silk, 2018, C-PrintThe exhibition is supported by Kulturudviklingspuljen (City of Aarhus), Danish Arts Foundation, and Grosserer L.

    Nestled in the remote town of Cascia within the mountains of southern Umbrian, lies the monastery Santuario di Santa Rita de Cascia. The monastery is the resting place of Saint Rita (1381-1457), canonized as the Saint of Impossible Causes.   The dani
    sh artist, Julie Born Schwartz, examins the legacy of Saint Rita in the video installation Ex-voto from 2018. She examines the legacy both through the daily activities of the nuns currently resident at the monastery, and through the connection between Saint Rita and Yves Klein, who held a deep fascination for the Saint and, on one pilgrimage to Casica, donated a votive to her which lay forgotten until it’s rediscovery following an earthquake in 1979.   Having been granted unprecedented access and intimacy to the daily workings inside the walls of the monastery, Born Schwartz witnessed the nuns undertake the multitude of daily tasks which constitute their very active form of faith and worship.   In the resulting film Born Schwartz draw out a meditation on belonging and belief, ultimately on the nature of spirituality itself, as seen through the prism of the nuns whose lives are held within the walls of Santuario di Santa Rita de Cascia.  Julie Born Schwartz is born in 1981. She lives and works in Copenhagen, and she is educated from Royal Academy Schools in London and Goldsmiths, University of London. Since 2011 she has been exhibiting in Denmark and several other European countries. For further information about the artist , click here.
