    Galleri Image presents the exhibition Time Times Three with computer and installation art by the Danish artist Rebecca Krasnik. The exhibition opens on Tuesday 19 January 2021.Krasnik has created a site-specific installation and a 3D computer animation th
    at plays with the physical  space and ideas on linear time. In the animation the hippopotamus lies alone in its void, completely calm and peaceful in the water. But each time it opens its mouth to bare its large teeth, we are reminded that it is aggressive, lethally dangerous and wild. The hippopotamus represents something it is not -- in fact it is made of numbers in a computer. Codes create its life in an alternate world that continues endlessly. The animation is not just a video played in a loop, but is created by algorithms that produce random occurrences over time. This allows the artwork to continue endlessly in both time and space - until the software crashes or the hardware breaks. The site-specific installation acts as a connection between the physical space and the technical qualities of the computer animation. It consists of staircases that stretch from the now into the future, towards  alternate timelines. Together they make up an exploration of a reality in which time is fluent, endless and individual.  In conjunction with the exhibition, Galleri Image will organise the symposium Time and Technology. The symposium will base its discussions on ideas on technological  developments, such as photography from around the turn of the 19th century. It will initiate discussions on how technological developments continue to affect the production and interpretation of images today. The symposium thereby examines the thoughts and ideas that lie behind the production and consumption of computer generated imagery; the temporal and spatial possibilities which occur within them; and the effect these possibilities have on the ways in which we experience time and space. The date for the symposium will be announced on our websiteAbout the Artist Rebecca Krasnik (b. 1987) is a Danish Visual Artist based in Copenhagen. She has an MFA in Photography, Video and Related Media from School of Visual Arts, New York City, USA. Krasnik's art has been exhibited in New York, London, Copenhagen, and more. Her exhibition at Galleri Image is her first solo show in Aarhus.

    Galleri Image presents the exhibition The Color of Water by the American artist Sarah Schorr. The Color of Water is an investigation of one of our life sustaining elements: water. What is the color of water? The answer is part science and part emotion; ye
    t the answer is elusive and shifting. Through the dual processes of examining gradations of color and gradations of emotion, Schorr follows the ephemeral refractions of light and mood in water. How will we preserve this resource for future generations? Opaque, transparent, or translucent, entering water can delineate both a physical passage and a metaphysical pathway. The point of ingress creates surface tension. A shift in pressure causes liquid to quiver as it is pierced. Air is reduced and then removed. Sound changes: Music becomes obscured and redacted. Silver to black to emerald green: Water is often not blue. Sometimes the sea is a rolling red from deep sea algae. Assisted by the waterscape, these transitions open us to different reflective experiences, sparking introspection about attention, physicality, and mobility in our media-saturated landscape. Schorr’s work does not answer the rhetorical question: what is the color of water? Instead, this project is an invitation to engage in a process of inquiry and contemplation. The Color of Water project grew out of Schorr's introduction to winter swimming near Aarhus. She found herself repeatedly drawn to the stark beauty of Ballehage beach in all seasons. Thus, began a photographic exploration of water and the reflexive states that it encourages. The Color of Water is composed of interrelated bodies of work by Schorr: Osmosis, Riptide, and Ephemeral Metallics. The exhibition also includes The Color of Water: Algorithmic Sea, a work and performance is developed in collaboration with Gabriel Pereira and Carlos Oliveira. A seminar and different workshops will be arranged during the exhibition period. These include Schorr's M.I.N.T workshop for youth, which invites participants to slow down to experience nature, and her interactive performance The Color of Water: Algorithmic Sea that investigates the subjective nature of color, the permeability of images and our subtle acceptance of the pervasive digitization of our experiences. About the artist: Sarah Schorr is an American photographic artist, researcher, and educator. Schorr’s work has been widely exhibited with solo shows at esteemed spaces such as Yancey Richardson Gallery and Scalo Project Space in New York City. Her photographic art has been selected for juried group exhibitions by notable curators such as Elizabeth Avedon and Paula Tognarelli. In 2020, Schorr’s work was honored by the Julia Margaret Cameron Award for women photographers (first prize) in the category of nude with an exhibition at the Fotonostrum Gallery in Barcelona and a Terra Foundation Fellowship residency (postponed to 2021). A catalogue of Schorr’s current work, The Color of Water, will be published by Galleri Image to accompany a forthcoming (2021) solo show of her work and travel (2022) to the Northern Photographic Centre in Finland. Since earning her PhD in 2017, her research examines photographic practice as a mode of contemplation and sense making. Schorr currently lives in Denmark where she works (and swims). You can visit the artist's website www.sarahschorr.com for more informationThe exhibition is supported by the Statens Kunstfonds, the city of Aarhus (Kulturudviklingspuljen), The A.P.

    Galleri Image presents the solo exhibition Raiz by the Portuguese artist Helena Gonçalves. Raiz (roots) is a series of staged photographs, recreations of an inner imaginarium: they arise from an archive of memories, concerns, a part of a personal diary. L
    ayers of an obscure space, about what we are. Assumed enactments, which do not seek to recreate reality, but where strange moments of relationships between the visible and the invisible are built.Representations behind representations, immobile figures, or in a small gesture, unidentified, expressive bodies, intension. Almost all photographs emerge from the dark, showing people, animals, nature, or small notes of (chaotic) civilization. The textures of the photographs in the spaces alternate between earth and tar, grass, and cement. The scenario where objects and animals appear, causes a strangeness across the work. We immerse ourselves in a world of the author, a journey through images that bring together, separate, and confuse emotions: nothing is linear. Within the frozen images we get lost in a cloud of possibilities. About the artistHelena Gonçalves (b. 1978) is a Portuguese photographic artist based in Portimão. Throughout her career she has worked with staged spaces, sometimes real, sometimes built for the image, with long exposures, pointing the light to part of the scenery that is in the image. Her photography presents the strange moments between the visible and the invisible – light painting on a black canvas. What appears are parts of an underworld, a different layer of our reality. Her work has been exhibited in a number of galleries, festivals and exhibition spaces in Portugal, France, Italy, Spain, the Czech Republic, and more. She is the co-founder of Black Box Atelier and teaches at Ar.Co., Atelier de Lisboa and Etic. Since 2000, she has also been the photographer for the Útero Theater Group.Raiz was first exhibited in 2018 at Antiga Gráfica Alvalade, Lisbon. It is Helena Gonçalves’ first exhibition in Denmark.  The exhibition is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation.
