    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.

    DK), Nils Stelte (DE), og Rocco Venezia (IT).Staged Salvations udforsker idéen om ritualer brugt i et forsøg på at overvinde en virkelighed der pludselig føles som en byrde. I udstillingen transformeres elementer af den materielle kultur til symboler og kreative værktøjer der bliver brugt i performancelignende handlinger som initierer forskellige tilgange til selvrefleksion indenfor diverse fællesskaber, hvilket muliggør en ny forløsning og tilfredsstillelse.  I forbindelse med ustillingen blev der udgivet et katalog af samme navn.Fernisering: d. 9 august fra kl. 16-18. Artist talks: d. 10 august fra kl. 14-15:30 med Lovro Japundžić og kunstnerne.9. august  | 8. september 2019Lovro Japundžić (f. 1990) fra Zagreb, Kroatien er cand.mag i kunst og sociologi.

    Fernisering: Fredag d. 13. september 2019 kl. 16:00 - 18:00 på Galleri Image, Vestergade 29, 8000 Aarhus C Galleri Image vil afholde et seminar om udstillingen med lektor i digital æstetik og design Lone Koefoed Hansen, sommerfugleekspert, biolog (Ph
    D) Anne Erlend Eskildsen og kunstner Signe Klejs lørdag d. 28. september kl 14:00.En sommerfugls vingeslag kan forårsage en orkan på den anden side af jorden. Sådan lyder en populær udlægning af kaosteorien, som beskriver hvordan små forandringer i udgangspunktet, kan få enorm betydning i senere stadier af en proces. Udstillingen BLOWN AWAY tager afsæt i kaosteorien og peger på at menneskelige handlinger påvirker omgivelserne og har større konsekvenser end vi kan forudse. Forstår vi i tilstrækkelig grad at vi er et globalt fællesskab hvor alt og alle er under påvirkning? Hvordan tager vi afsked med det der forsvinder som en konsekvens af vores handlinger?Klejs kalder sin videoinstallation et Sommerfugle-Nekropolis da den består af et videoarkiv der gengiver farver og mønstre fra de mere end 12 dagsommerfuglearter der er uddøde i Danmark indenfor få årtier pga. forandringer i deres livsbetingelser. Sommerfuglene kaldes naturens termometre, da de reagerer hurtigt på miljømæssige udsving. Udbredelsen af landbruget og klimaforandringer påvirker flora og fauna og mere end halvdelen af sommerfuglearter herhjemme er derfor truede eller sårbare.I udstillingen er de uddøde arter gengivet i farvet sand, ligesom buddhisternes sandmandalaer – en munketradition der skal minde os om at intet varer evigt, hvor store symmetriske billeder skabes omhyggeligt af farvet sand og efter en tid destrueres under en rituel begivenhed, hvorefter sandet fordeles i naturen. I BLOWN AWAY blæses sommerfuglebillederne væk. Blæsten kommer fra vinddata i realtid fra havet sydøst for New Zealand – bogstaveligtalt talt den anden side af jorden. På den måde synliggøres en direkte påvirkning forårsaget af et lokalt vindforhold langt herfra. Klejs’ seneste værker har det fællestræk at de er foranderlige pga. påvirkning fra omgivelserne. Hun har bl.a. benyttet data fra solnedgangen og lokale vindforhold med henblik på at fremstille samspillet mellem miljø (natur) og værk (kultur).Signe Klejs (f. 1974) er en dansk kunstner uddannet fra Designskolen Kolding og Universität der Künste Berlin indenfor den eksperimenterende mediekunst. I hendes værker udfordrer hun potentialet i den digitale kunst gennem det, hun definerer som relationelle møder mellem krop, miljø og teknologi. Hun arbejder på tværs af kunstarter og hendes værker strækker sig over scenekunst, stedsspecifik kunst, installationer og tværmediale projekter. Hendes kunst har været udstillet over hele Scandinavien, i Europa, Asien og U.S.A. I forbindelse med Aarhus Europæisk Kulturhovedstad 2017 har hun skabt værket Hesitation of Light. Siden maj 2019 har hendes permanente lysinstallation Zeitgeist præget Kvindemuseet i Aarhus’ facade.Du kan læse mere på hendes hjemmeside www.cygne.dk  Særligt tak til CAVI, Aarhus Universitet.Udstillingen er støttet af Statens Kunstfond, Augustinus Fonden og Kulturudviklingspuljen (Aarhus Kommune)

    Opening: Friday 13 September 2019 from 4-6 pm at Galleri Image, Vestergade 29, 8000 Aarhus COn Saturday September 28th at 2 pm Galleri Image will host a seminar about this exhibition. In attendance, Professor in Digital Aesthetics and Design, Lone Koefoed
    Hansen, Butterfly expert Anne Erlend Eskildsen and Artist Signe Klejs.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 as it consists of a video archive depicting colors and patterns from the more than 12 species of butterflies which are now extinct in Denmark. This extinction which has happened over a few decades and is caused by changes to 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 back to 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 engage 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).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 many genres including, stage art, visual arts, site specific art, installations and transmedia projects. Klejs' art has been exhibited all over Scandinavia, in Europe, Asia and the US. 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.dkA special thanks to CAVI, Aarhus University.The Exhibition is supported by Kulturudviklingspuljen (City of Aarhus), Augustinus Fonden and the Danish Arts Foundation.

    I udstillingen gen-undersøger Ida Nissen, via forskellige ”historiske”, analoge teknikker, rummet mellem det synlige og det usynlige; et magisk rum, hvor nye visuelle fænomener kan opstå. Central er en serie af farvefotogrammer produceret i mørkekammerets
    lukkede sfære, uden brug af kamera. Skyggerne fra transparente materialer eksponeres på lysfølsomt papir. Blikket, som i gængs forstand er fotografens primære redskab, er heller ikke en del af processen på dette afgørende stadie, fordi arbejdet forgår i mørke. Billedernes tilblivelsesproces i farvemørkekammeret vil i udstillingen søges afspejlet i den rumlige installering og en særlig lyssætning omkring dem i komplementærfarver.
