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).
________

What is your greatest wish? Come and share your dreams on Papirøen’s quayside and make your contribution to the Japanese artist Yoko Ono’s art installation Wish Tree Garden. Since the 1980s Yoko Ono has been working on the piece Wish Tree. The work consists of one or more trees planted in places all around the world, with each tree species adapted, on Yoko Ono’s instructions, to the place and its climate. On a slip of paper, a so-called ‘wish tag’, anyone can write a wish which is afterwards hung from the branches of the trees. All the wishes are regularly collected and sent to Ono’s Imagine Peace Tower on the island of Viðey in Kollafjörður Bay, Iceland: an art installation that consists of a tall column of light dedicated to Ono’s late husband, the musician John Lennon. The wishes from CC are buried around the Peace Tower along with the millions of other wishes that have been collected since 1996 from other places in the world.

Yoko Ono’s Wish Tree Garden has been created specifically for Copenhagen Contemporary and will be a permanent part of CC’s harbour area in front of the exhibition halls from 1 July 2016.

Yoko Ono was born in 1933 in Tokyo and moved to New York in 1953, where she lives and works today. She studied Music and Poetry there at the Sarah Lawrence College. In the 1960s she was part of the artist group Fluxus, where she became particularly well known for her performance and conceptual art.
