HOT ICELANDIC …..
03.05.08 - 21.06.08
Stalke Up North in Gilleleje, Denmark, are pleased to announce the opening of the group show HOT ICELANDIC.... with five distinctive Icelandic artists, who each will contribute with their view on the Icelandic nature/culture.
Stalke Gallery in Kirke Sonnerup had Einar Thorsteinns first solo show in Denmark in 2005, 'Space Fang Space'. Einar Thorsteinn works to unite architecture and art. He is a pioneer within alternative architecture, and has worked very closely with Olafur Eliasson the last ten years. HOT ISLANDIC….. will present new five-fold symmetry works of art.
Gudmundur Ingólfsson has for the last many years documented the nature and culture in and around Reykjavik, and it is within this field that a series of 5 works has been chosen. Jacob Lillemose has just finished the text for Ingólfssons photo book, due to come out this fall.
Kristleifur Björnsson, who has just moved to Berlin, presents his latest work, 5 drawings titled Weekend Study. Nude studies traditionally salutes the female beauty, but in the hands of Kristleifur Björnsson, they also become a matter of fact and loving comment to the modern lonely Man. Kristleifur Björnsson has been invited to participate in the Group Show Street & Studio, An Urban History of Photography, at Tate Modern from 22. May to 21. August 2008. Kristleifur Björnsson also participates with his Yellow Dog and Parrot in the Group Show 'Gallery Poulsen visits Magasin', Dronningesalen, at Magasin du Nord, Copenhagen in May 2008.
Olafur Eliasson, who has just opened his Solo Show at MOMA in New York, participates with works from the Island Series, on loan from Stalke Collection.
Sigurgeir Sigurjónsson, known for the famous photo book 'Lost in Iceland' and 'Icelanders' from 2004, had his first exhibition at Gallery Kambur in Iceland last year with new photos. They are taken from a height of 50-100 meters above the Icelandic landscape, where the motif is being explored and challenged from new angles - where the various elements of Nature meet each other.
We welcome you to the opening on Saturday 3. May from 13-17.
