Indvielsen — Invitation to the exhibition opening — June 3 — Copenhagen
It is my great pleasure to invite you to the opening of the exhibition of our project — Indvielsen | Initiation: The Danish Tribe
June 3, 2016
17:00–19:00, Artist talk at 17.30
Politiken Boghal — Rådhuspladsen 37 , 1785 København K
This is a multi-disciplinary art project that me and Laureline Demonet have been working on lately. It is a project where we combine social studies, fashion, textile craft and photography.
Laureline explores the views of newcomers to Denmark on the Danish fashion and “Danishness” in general. She then creates a mask of what she has discovered through the interviews and later on I take photographs of the interviewees wearing their “Danish” mask.
This work is an opportunity for the Danes to look at themselves from a very unusual angle. We wish thereby to shake up the stereotypes about national identities and invite you to join the tribe!
The first part of our project will be exhibited as an installation on the Metro’s construction’s wall -City Hall Square. This is definitely the largest installation that I have ever been part of — we take over the whole wall, which is 4 meters high and 50 meters long, from top to bottom! The oversized portraits, accompanied by a narrative, will be there from the 3rd of June 2016 until end of December 2016.

I’m really looking forward to seeing you on June 3rd for the opening of this bizarre project!
