Hard Earned Innocence

Friday, November 6 - Sunday, November 22, 2020
Lyngby Kunstforening (Portnerboligen ved Sophienholm)  

Innocence the Hard Way, Flashe on prepared paper, 40 x 31 cm

“Let everything that's been planned come true. Let them believe. And let them have a laugh at their passions. Because what they call passion actually is not some emotional energy, but just the friction between their souls and the outside world. And most important, let them believe in themselves. Let them be helpless like children, because weakness is a great thing, and strength is nothing. When a man is just born, he is weak and flexible. When he dies, he is hard and insensitive. When a tree is growing, it's tender and pliant. But when it's dry and hard, it dies. Hardness and strength are death's companions. Pliancy and weakness are expressions of the freshness of being. Because what has hardened will never win.”

– Andrei Tarkovsky (The Stalker)

The exhibition consists of 8 paper-works, fragile but with a tangible presence. They are delicate, textured pieces of prepared paper that have been put in color-baths and rinsed off and repainted. The contrast between the fragile nature of the works and their raw energy creates a captivating suspense. The works are process-based created in an interchange between the intuitive and formal considerations.

The artist insists on the haptic surface as the most important, surface and materiality over words and ideas. The works for the exhibition are created through a chemical reaction over time, the pigment of the paint settles as dust on top of the prepared paper and thereby holds them in the present, suspended in time, so that the materials can be allowed to retain their rawness, thus their potential. and their life.

Romantic Troopers, Lage Egal, Invited by DAG, Glue

Vernissage: FRI, August 10, 2018, 5 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Exhibition 11.8 - 24.8 2018,

open THU - FRI, 3 p.m. - 6 p.m.


The word "necessity" is short for a principle of order. Things and people have to fit in and acknowledge the order, arrangement, command from above - that is necessary, they say. Nothing is further from the autonomous romantic subject. Order is repugnant to them it stands at right angles to the grid, nimbly crosses the demarcation lines, dismantles the manifested structures in order to create new things from the chaos - until the order swallows the new, thickened, consumed, classified. It is necessary, they think. Now it seems to be gone, the new. But there is already further chaos on the fringes of the front hurrying ahead of the dispersed troops of the disobedient.

Interiors & Territories

Galerie1214 shows from 1st June 2018 until June 22nd the exhibition "Savage Glitter II: Interiors + Territories" with the artist Marie Irmgard Birkedal. An artist talk with Marie Irmgard Birkedal takes place on Friday, June 1st, 6:30 p.m. in Galerie1214.
Concert bassoon +: Villa-Lobos / Heinichen.

The Danish painter Marie Irmgard Birkedal has been working on a group of works consisting of interior views and unusual still lifes since 2014. The Danish compatriot Axel Salto spoke of “supernatural interiors” a hundred years earlier, with a view to Matisse's bold pictorial inventions. Birkedal's colorful and large-scale sculptural paintings suggest a description as 'paranatural': nature returns almost like a jungle in the supposedly circumscribed, sealed-off interior, in colors that model inner worlds, in forms that assert themselves as a matter of course. Instead of views, Birkedal presents us with breakthroughs: one does not look discreetly through the window into their interiors, it is as if walls were open and the room took back what civilization withheld from it.
