PRESSEMEDDELELSE

Copenhagen Contemporary (CC) is an independent institution, established in 2015 with a view to creating a new, international exhibition venue in Copenhagen. To kickstart the major project CC has rented the 3,400 square-meter halls on Paper Island (Christiansholm) in Copenhagen. 

After a renovation period CC is now opening part of the exhibition space on June 30 with a warm-up opening of the German artist Carsten Nicolai's more than 30-metre-long light and audio installation unidisplay. The work consists of a long wall on which changing light patterns are projected, and where mirrors on both sides of the projection make up an endless universe. The undulating patterns affect our eyes, among other ways through optical illusions, flicker and after-images. At the same time a soundtrack that is propagated through the body by speakers supports the various visual idioms. The work thus offers both a visual and a physical experience. Outside on the quayside one can also experience works by Yoko Ono and Pettersen & Hein.

These works will also be included in CC's grand opening on August 25 along with works by the American artist Bruce Nauman and Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson.

For 18 months, from June 30, 2016 to December 31, 2017, CC will implement changing exhibitions of work by internationally recognized artists.

The vision
The vision for this one and a half year long pilot project is that CC can afterwards be established in a more permanent place in Copenhagen.

CC is to be a supplement to the existing museums and art halls—a living centre for art and people where a broad public will be able to experience large artworks with a sensory appeal by some of the most significant artists of the present day. These are works that stimulate both body and intellect, and thus involve and engage the individual visitor. 

CC wants to forge relations outside the house, for example in connection with exhibitions, festivals, performances, talks etc. and is already collaborating with external players including Copenhagen Street Food and Cph Art Week.

CC's intention is to offer major artistic experiences to all visitors and at the same time create an open, relaxed place for people of all ages with long opening hours and events, a shop and a café (in the summer both indoors and outdoors).

______

Especially for Copenhagen Contemporary, the art and design duo Pettersen & Hein will create thirteen coloured concrete benches for the harbour area in front of the exhibition halls on Papirøen. For a year and a half the benches will add colour to the raw industrial area and invite people to spend time and be together on the quayside. The Norwegian artist Magnus Pettersen and the Danish furniture designer Lea Hein form the duo. Since 2015 they have collaborated to create works in the crossfield between art and design. Often they experiment with raw industrial materials like concrete and steel shaped into simple geometrical forms. The grey concrete is given new life by Pettersen & Hein’s special dyeing techniques where pigments in pink, turquoise and dark blue transform the dead material in the casting process.

Pettersen & Hein’s concrete benches will be a permanent feature of Copenhagen Contemporary’s harbour area in front of the exhibition halls from 1 July 2016.

Magnus Pettersen (b. 1983) graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2011, Lea Hein (b. 1981) graduated from Högskolan för design och kunsthantverk in Gothenburg in 2014. Since the beginning of their collaboration in 2015 Pettersen & Hein have aroused great attention both at home and abroad with several solo and group shows.
