Kurator: Elisabeth Toubro

28.09.2012 - 27.10.2012


The Danish sculptor Elisabeth Toubro - a central figure on the Danish art scene - will curate the exhibition 7 generous gestures at Galleri Lars Olsen. She has invited seven artists, whose works have all brought her new insights and experiences. In her selection, she has focused on significant artists younger than herself, whose works combine visual and sensorial narratives, often through videos or installations.

The participating artists are as follows:

Vibe Bredahl (f. 1974), MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen, based in Beijing, China and Holløse, DK. Vibe Bredahl has exhibited at a large number of art museums, art halls and galleries in Denmark and abroad. She is represented at 21 C Museum Foundation, Louisville Kentucky, Ny Carlsberg Fonden, Statens Kunstfond, in Nykredit's collections and in private collections both at home and abroad.
Vibe Bredahl's artistic expression encompasses and often examines "the journey". From 2011 to 2013, she has chosen to travel to China from where she will continue working on journeying and transformation as the fundamental theme of her work.

Dorte Jelstrup (f. 1964), based in Copenhagen. She has exhibited at a large number of art museums, art halls and galleries in Denmark and abroad and is represented at, amongst others, Statens Museum for Kunst and Statens Kunstfond as well as in private collections.
Dorte Jelstrup often addresses psychologising and symbolic subjects, dream, mental states, longing and loss in her work, which often incorporates elements from art historic surrealism and constructivism, two of avant-garde modernism's most important trends in the 20th century.

Jane Jin Kaisen (b. 1980 in South Korea and adopted to Denmark), based in Copenhagen. She holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary Studio Art from University of California Los Angeles, an MA in Art Theory and Communication from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and participated in the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York. She has exhibited in a vast number of art museums, galleries etc. in Denmark and abroad.
Jane Jin Kaisen is invested in how representations of memory, history, and transnational subjectivity are shaped and negotiated. Mainly working within the media of film, performance, and writing, she creates multi-layered narratives that are simultaneously political and poetic. From a transnational feminist and postcolonial perspective, she is interested in the re-writing of history and official narratives in order to suggest new genealogies and readings.

Jette Hye Jin Mortensen (b, 1980 in Syd Korea), MFA (dist.), based in Copenhagen. Like her colleagues at this exhibition she has exhibited widely at museums and galleries both internationally and in Denmark.
Jette Hye Jin Mortensen works within the media of film, video installation and performance. Questions regarding identity production and cultural performativity are central in the works of Jette Hye Jin Mortensen. In complex, formally challenging projects, we are invited into performative experiments and multi-spectered meditations on ideological frameworks, unconscious models of representation, psychology, communication and power. One can perceive her installations and performative spaces as meditations on culture as condition - activated through J.H.J. Mortensen as material, or idea, molded by the invitation of additional, collective imagination.

Mie Olise (b. 1974 in Denmark), based in Copenhagen and New York, MFA from Central St. Martins School of Art, London, UK. She has exhibited widely at art museums and galleries in Denmark and abroad.
Working as a painter, constructor and filmmaker, Olise has developed a particular blend of architecture, art and psychology. She works with narratives relating to space, abandoned places and desolate structures. Olise travels to these places in different states of disrepair to research, collect stories and later subjectively develop particular layers of the found truths.

Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen (b. 1970 in Manila, Philipines), based in Copenhagen. MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen. She has exhibited at a string of art museums and galleries at home and abroad. She is represented at, amongst others,Statens Museum for Kunst, Malmø Konst Museum and KIASMA, Moderne kunstmuseum, Helsinki Finland. Some of her works have also been bought by Statens Kunstfond.
Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen works across media and her works often consist of multiple components: music, text, costumes, choreography and scenography which are assembled into an expression and staged as a performance, video, photograph, objects or installations. Recurrent themes in her works are identity in relation to gender, ethnicity, belief and socio-cultural conditions and contexts.

Kristoffer Ørum & Anders Bojen (b. i 1975 and 1976, respectively in Denmark), are based in Copenhagen. Both hold MFAs from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen as well as Goldsmiths College, London. Together they have exhibited at a vast number of art museums, galleries other venues both in Denmark and abroad.
During the last ten years, Anders Bojen & Kristoffer Ørum have worked together on narrative projects aiming to rewrite specific stories ranging from whole cities such as Roskilde or Copenhagen to their collective biographies. Inspired by the historical avantgardes, Soviet dissident art, science fiction, queer, pataphysics and commercials, they produce alternatives to the prevailing political, aesthetic and theoretical dogmas. Their projects simultaneously address and undermine the common narratives and mythologies of the world which control both political and artistic discourses - creating unstable intermedial scenarios that build up temporary credibility in order to infect society with new narratives and open up new avenues of thinking.Together they have exhibited at a vast number of art museums and galleries in Denmark and abroad.
