    At: Galleri Image Vestergade 29, 8000 Aarhus, Danmark
    Galleri Image presents new work by the artist Maria Meinild in the exhibition A HUM – the artist’s first solo exhibition in Aarhus. The exhibition will be shown from 12 January – 24 February 2019 The reception for the opening will be on 11 January at 4 pm
    . About the Exhibition: In the exhibition A HUM, Maria Meinild explores the borders between the self and the other, between human and non-human, through video installation, photographic works and individual objects. Central to the exhibition is the video installation, where puppeteers and objects are seen together in choreographed movements. The staging of the relationship between objects, conditions and human beings unfolds in scenes, where connections between individual and interpersonal relations are explored. The scenarios in the video are inspired by psychodrama; a form of group therapy that utilises elements of theatre, engaging with spontaneity and the exploration of emotions and behavioral patterns through roleplay. The exhibition as a whole addresses how social structures such as, community and institutions relate to individual experiences. The puppet becomes a hybrid between object and body. Meinild’s use of puppet-and object theatre can be seen as a metaphor for our relationship to the body as it exists in and is transformed by an accelerating economy and technologies. Maria Meinild will present her work in an artist talk on Saturday 23 February at Galleri Image. About the Artist: Maria Meinild (b. 1984 in Sweden) work combines methods from the world of theatre with investigations of the staging of everyday life, patterns of social behaviour, and our ideas of normality. She lives and works in Copenhagen and holds an MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and she has also studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Recent exhibitions include; Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna; Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; Galleri CC, Malmö; Galerie Les Territoires, Montréal og Künstlerhaus KM, Graz. She was recently awarded residency at the Delfina Foundation in London and at ISCP in New York. The exhibition is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, Danish Art Workshops Copenhagen, and IAC Malmö.

    At: The Demo Room at Galleri Image 29 Vestergade
    In February 2019, Sophia Ioannou Gjerding and William Kudahl will open a new exhibition concept in the Demo Room in Galleri Image, where a unique exhibition program will be on display alongside Galleri Image’s other exhibition programs. Gjerding and Kuhda
    l will curate the series of exhibitions for this format under the main title Demo, aiming to create an ambitious exhibition program over the course of 5 months with both national and international artists. The exhibitions will revolve around a mixture of sound, language, image and physical objects, and will include both solo- and group exhibitions. The series of exhibitions will unfold in two different exhibition spaces  simultaneously: In the Demo Room on Vestergade, and in an attached virtual space; a website has been produced especially for the occasion with sound based works, which are connected to the exhibition in the Demo Room.Demo opened on Friday 8 February 2019, with the opening of the exhibition “Krigen, Kunsten og Hjemsøgelsen skrevet af Ann-Katrine Schmidt Nielsen og oplæst af Kaptajn Simon Ekelund” by Peter Voss Knude. For several years, Peter Voss-Knude has worked with soldiers, the military and contemporary Danish participation in war, where art meets politics and anthroplogy, and he has among other things done a pop album with the Danish Defense Force. For this exhibiton Til Voss-Knude has produced a podcast, in which Captajn Simon Ekelund reads an academic analysis of Peter Voss-Knudes work with the military, written by Ann-Katrine Schmidt Nielsen. A prop from a former performance piece will be placed in the Demo Room. The podcast is in Danish.The exhibitions are supported by the City of Aarhus (Kulturudviklingspuljen).

    posium which accompanies the exhibition ScreenShots: Desire and Automated Image will feature artists and scholars who consider contemporary forms of image making and its computational apparatus. By paying attention to (im)material properties of the post-photographic image they will unpack the relation between desire and automation, uncertainty and labour, self and other, and they will consider images as living and not just moving, operative and not just generative and generated. The symposium is organised by Galleri Image, the Digital Design Dept. at Aarhus University and the Humans and IT Research Centre at Aarhus University, in collaboration with Kunsthal Aarhus.The symposium is moderated by Magdalena Tyżlik-Carver, curator of the exhibition. Presenters include:Anna Ridler, Artist (UK)Geoff Cox, Associate Professor (Reader) in Fine Art, Plymouth University, Associate Professor Aarhus University (UK/DK)Katrina Sluis, Curator Digital Programmes, The Photographers' Gallery, London (UK/AU)Kristoffer Ørum, Artist (DK)LaTurbo Avedon (avatar artist and curator) Michael Mandiberg, Artist (US)Winnie Soon, Assistant Professor, Aarhus University (DK/HK) The exhibition ScreenShots: Desire and Automated Image can be viewed 08.03.2019 – 28.04.2019 Private view Fri, 08.03.2019  17.00-19.00 Galleri Image, Vestergade 29, 8000 Aarhus C Participating artists: Anna Ridler (UK), Kristoffer Ørum (DK), LaTurbo Avedon (avatar artist), Michael Mandiberg (US), Petra Cortright (US), Rosemary Lee (DK/US), Sara Schorr (DK/US), Sebastian Lütgert a.k.a.

    The exhibition ScreenShots: Desire and Automated Image investigates image and its apparatus of production which today is increasingly based on technologies of computation. 3D computer graphics, screen resolution protocols and machine learning algorithms a
    re some of the contemporary technologies that are part of image making processes. At the same time, social media cultures of image capture and sharing sustain and maintain images and their production by daily labour when filters are applied, images are tagged and data is stored. All together, they constitute computer aided ecologies of image making. The format of a screenshot, originally used to represent human-computer interactions in computer-aided design, is considered here as an aesthetic form that facilitates representation of computational processes and at the same it is always in the making and unfinished. As such screenshots can be considered to capture a process becoming an image that is networked, algorithmic and subjectivised. Artists featured in the exhibition make use of these properties of screenshots as a medium and a tool. They disrupt traditional understanding of computation by injecting their desires and bodies in order to become part of the process of image making together with data and computation. They pull in the body and its movements (geo-located, tagged and profiled) into a process of making a picture, revealing the material, performed and operative nature of the contemporary digital image. Participating artists: Anna Ridler, Kristoffer Ørum, LaTurbo Avedon, Michael Mandiberg, Petra Cortright, Rosemary Lee, Sarah Schorr, Sebastian Lütgert a.k.a. Robert Luxemburg, Winnie Soon. Curated by: Magdalena Tyżlik-Carver The exhibition is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, Kulturudviklingspuljen (City of Aarhus), Dept. of Digital Design at Aarhus University, Humans and IT Research Centre at Aarhus University, US Embassy Small Grants Program and Grosserer L.

    From May 03, 2019 to June 23, 2019
    Opening: Friday, May 3rd from 4. pm - 6. pm

    Picnicking is far from a simple affair in eastern India. In a land where the fleeting months of December to February offer the only time to ‘enjoy’ the otherwise unbearable tropical sun, picnicking is a winter pastime that’s taken very, very seriously. B
    uses and cooks are hired as groups of families, friends, neighbors and colleagues travel far to claim the perfect picnic spot, preferably around the innumerable rivers traversing the landscape, from the Ganges downstream to the Rupnarayan, Icchamati and myriad other tidal rivers close to the Sunderbans. Vats of freshly slaughtered chicken, sacks of vegetable and an arsenal of pots, pans and gas cylinders are lugged along, taking cooking en plein air to a whole new level. Yet the most curious detail is, by and far, the extravagant loudspeakers that come with nearly every picnic group. Transported in their own hand drawn carts or mini-vans, separate generators are also brought along to pump up the electricity in the great outdoors. Songs from recent Bengali and Hindi blockbusters blare high above permissible decibels. Drunk on whiskey and rum, men of all ages brawl, dance their hearts out or pass out, as wives, girlfriends and children watch. PIK-NIK by Arko Datto, with work done between 2013 and 2015, takes a look at these yearly picnics as a phenomenon, their cultural meaning, and the environmental imprint that is left on the nature after each event.Read more about Arko Datto: http://www.arkodatto.com.
