Copenhagen Photofestival June 2021


Thank you to Copenhagen Photofestival for inviting Julia Mejnertsen/Blankt Papir.& Nina Worren/NW Gallery to curate photobook exhibition, talks and the first ever photobook market at this years festival at Refshaleøen.



ROOM 


We call the photobook area of this year’s festival “ROOM” as a nod to the important feminist work “A Room of One’s Own” by Virginia Woolf. In “A Room of One’s Own” Woolf argues simply that the lack of female representation is not due to lack of talent, but rather lack of opportunity. The photobook area of this year’s festival gives ROOM to photobook talks, photobook market and a curated photobook-shop.

Soft Power – The Second Phase of Photobooks –  a curated photobook exhibition and shop 

The winds of change have been blowing for some time, but that doesn’t mean that the issue of representation is solved and with this year’s curated bookshop, we wish to push for further opportunities to be created by sharing some of the amazing and important photobooks made by women in recent years. Works that we find empowering and which have made an impression on us. This is by no means an exhaustive collection, but rather a window into a room of personal expressions.

Photobook Exhibition


Soft Power - the second phase of photobooks.


“Soft power as opposed to hard power are both terms used in politics. Soft power represents a way of getting a desired outcome by seduction rather than coercion, and is often associated with for instance cultural and pop cultural influences. Soft power is thus a term defined by softer values. What soft power represents is culture for everyone, and we believe that photobooks can be enjoyed by everyone. It doesn’t take an art education to enjoy pictures, visual narratives and personal stories - and just as important, everyone has a story to tell. In politics, soft power is also termed “the second face of power” (i.e. hard power being the first), and as the photobook market continues to bloom, we believe that the second phase of photobooks are photobooks made by voices that have previously been neglected. While this shop is focused on women, we believe that works by a more diverse group should be strived for - we wish to see works by transgender, queer, diverse cultures and nationalities all the same. In our curation, you’ll find works dealing with everything from beauty industry to connecting with nature, motherhood and the lack of - whether by choice or not, and about memories of love and loss.”

Including phenomenal book works for browsing and for sale by Laia Abril, Katherine Longly, Ann Massal, Lise Saxtrup, Margot Wallard, Lisbet Nielsen, Nina Strand, Janemaria Mekoline Pedersen, Linda Bergman, Giulia Iacolutti, Paola Favoino, Katinka Goldberg and Claudine Doury.

NW Gallery presents

Like Purity, Like Gravity

a solo exhibition by
Carolina Echeverri


05.06.-26.06.21.


Carolina Echeverri's solo exhibition Like Purity, Like Gravity pushes for our understanding of nature and re-formulates our relationship with it.

In a series of photographic diptychs and a sound installation, Echeverri explores the purity related to innocence contained in natural attributes, in instinct and qualities related to religion, culture, gender and identity connected to nature. When we remove the natural chaos and the beautiful freedom we were born into, and then create a fabricated, controlled and manipulated disorder disguised as a tainted idea of order, human beings will innocently lose their compass.

Carolina Echeverri wants to reset our relationship with nature, by showing it as it is - or as it may be without our intervention. The child's leg under the dress belongs to her son, and it was precisely this photograph that started her study of nature and man as two separate beings, trying to dominate each other in an eternal dance.

Carolina Echeverri was born in 1980 in Bogotá, Colombia, with schooling in the capital and all her free time spent on her father's farm far outside the city. The free and unruly nature became her playmate, who has then followed her all her life and shaped her view on the world.

She has previously participated in group exhibitions at e.g. Kunsthal Charlottenborg and Hans Alf Gallery, and the exhibition at NW Gallery is her first solo exhibition in Copenhagen. In 2019, she was featured in GUP Magazine “Fresh Eyes” as one of the best emerging photographers in Europe, and in 2021, the Latin America Photography Foundation and  Enfoque Visual Magazine named her as one of 30 recommended new Latin American photographers.


She lives in Copenhagen with her husband and two children. See her works at www.carolinaecheverri.com.

 "URO"

Solo Exhibition with Cecilie N. Rasmussens 


It is also the first AIR (Artist In Residency) Exhibition at NW Gallery & The Project Room in Nansensgade 10.

In July 2020 we launched our AIR program focusing on female artists working with mental health as personal projects and Cecilie N. Rasmussen were chosen and has immersed into her project at our space during the autumn.

This exhibition will show fragments of her ongoing project experimenting in the study of human behaviour:


***
URO

- “Uro” has a dual meaning of the feeling of unrest and the calming sensory mobile for babies.

You are invited into the home of a person with a mental illness. This intimate space becomes a self portrait of the balance between a safe, secure area, where thoughts, feelings and routine are unexposed to others than yourself. On the other hand it is simultaneously a paradox of a gross, filthy and stressed reminder of the faulty wiring in your brain which can be difficult to escape. The home is representative of personal traces and fragments of a life.

There will also be an interactive installation inspired by association as thought and the rhizome.



19.11.20 Special opening - only for personally invited guests.


OPENING HOURS:
Friday 20.11.20 16-19
Saturday 21.11.20 12-15
Sunday 22.11.20 12-15
Monday Closed
Tuesday 24.11.20 16-19
Wednesday 25.11.20 13-17 (last day)


The AIR program is kindly supported by København Kommune/Direktør Michael Hermann Nielsens Mindelegat, afd B.

COMPLEX STATES 

We are excited about being one of the contributing venues to the exhibition “Complex States”.

“Complex States” is an international exhibition that comes as a
timely and urgent response to both the divisive events of “Brexit” and the “Covid-19”
pandemic. With more than 30 international artists, 13 venues and a cutting edge
augmented reality platform, the exhibition will run
until the 31st of December 2020 when the Brexit process draws to a close.
As an exhibition
that traverses nations, as well as the physical and virtual, Complex States offers a platform
for renewed trans-national dialogue, collaboration and cultural exchange.



Curated by Catherine Harrington and Vassiliki Tzanakou - the founder of ARTinTRA in cooperation with the software company afca. based in Bern.



NW Gallery will exhibit works by Eliza Tamo.






Other contributing artists:

Zish Alexander, David Bannister, Jan Bowman, Jason deCaires-Taylor, Michael Craig-Martin, Jeremy Deller, Led By Donkeys, Rita Duffy, Ben Jakober and Yannick VU, Stephane Graff, Lara Hoad, Michal Iwanowski, Henry Jones, Keep It
Complex, Richard Littler, Hynek Martinec, Stefana Mcclure, Gil Mualem Doron, Poshfruit,
Quiet British Accent, Simon Roberts, Martin Rowson, Bob & Roberta Smith, John Springs, Susan Stockwell, Joe Sweeney, Koen VanMechelen, Wolfgang Tillmans.

As part of the exhibition “Complex States” we proudly present the project Murmur by artist Eliza Tamo (UK):

A collection of antique pre WWI picture postcards which combine the original inscriptions of the writers with seascapes of the two bodies of water that separate and unite Great Britain with the European mainland photographed between 2016-2018.
Her work draws on history, power, memory, chance and the mundane. She uses photography, collage, text and repurposed materials to play with the notion of the archive both in a theoretical and tactile way.

The 13 unique postcards will be on display at the gallery until December 20th.
