Galleri Image and Photobook Week Aarhus are part of the 2nd Hong Kong Photobook Festival with an exhibition of Danish photobooks curated by the artist Ida Nissen.

The exhibition contains photobooks by the artists Rebecca Krasnik, Ida Nissen, Astrid Kruse Jensen, Sarah Schorr, Nicolai Howalt, Inuuteq Storch, Lisbet Nielsen, Lotte Fløe Christensen and many others.

This exhibition is the first presentation of Danish contemporary photobooks at Hong Kong Photobook Festival. It brings together 20 photobooks produced by artists within the last decade and presents practices existing within the broader field of contemporary photography, responding to its shifting and overlapping conditions. Moving beyond the photo book as a linear narrative or as a container for typologies, the practices on view in this exhibition foreground the photobook as a dynamic and complex creative practice. The exhibition is divided into 4 zones taking us from the experience of time, space and technology, the everyday, memory and transformation, and the examining of landscape and nature. The artists incite a voyage leading us at different visual
paces through personal and collective challenges, transitions, and wider existential speculations, all with an underlying sensibility to the specific nature of the book and the viewer’s eye. Some of the publications on display in this exhibition are the artists first artist book and several are on view in Hong Kong for the first time.

The exhibition will be open throughout the festival’s from 5 November – 20 November 2022 at Light and Shadow Workshop – L2-02, Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre, 30 Pak Tin Street, Kip Mei, Kowloon.
