The 60th Venice Biennale officially opens 20 April 2024. This year’s programme includes exhibitions and performance by a wide selection of interesting artists from around the world, several of whom have exhibited at Galleri Image through the years.

The Greenlandic artist Inuuteq Storch, whose first institutional solo exhibition in Denmark, was at Galleri Image in 2021, will be representing the 2024 Danish Pavilion with the exhibition Rise of the Sunken Sun, which is curated by Louise Wolthers. He is not only the first artist from the North Atlantic region of the Danish Commonwealth to do so, but also the first photographer.
His exhibition at Galleri Image, Good Hope Keepers and the Mirrored Portraits of the Ocean, was beloved by many of our visitors, and was accompanied by the symposium Gazes on Greenland, which we presented at the Greenlandic house in Aarhus. He also curated the exhibition of Greenlandic photobooks Eye to Eye as part of our festival Photobook Week Aarhus that same year.

Another artist you can experience at this year’s Biennale is Antonio Jose Guzman, who exhibited as part of the collective The State of L3 in 2011 in Galleri Image with the exhibition Piertopia. He is now in an artist duo with Iva Jankovic, with whom he will present a work in the Biennale’s main exhibition Foreigners Everywhere curated Adriano Pedrosa.

Jane Jin Kaisen, who presented the exhibition Loving Belinda in Galleri Image in 2015, will be part of the anniversary exhibition Every Island is a Mountain celebrating the Korean Pavilion.

Vladimir Tomic, who presented the exhibition Remembering The Nowhere in Galleri Image in 2016, also takes part in this year’s Biennale as one of the contributing artists to the project By the Means at Hand by Vlatka Horvat at the Croatian Pavilion.

And finally, Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen will be participating in the hologram showcase Vivaar Venezia. Her work was shown in Seoul in 2006 as part of the the group exhibition New Adventures, which we organised. Her first open air performances, also organised by Galleri Image, were presented at Lianzhou Foto Festival in China the following year.

It has been an absolute joy to see all these artists continue to flourish after exhibiting in Galleri Image, and to see that those of them who have had the honour before continue to be invited back to Biennale. We wish them all the best of luck with this year’s Venice adventure!
