Velkommen til fernisering lørdag den 21. juni kl. 14:00 i Herskabsstalden, hvor der bydes på en forfriskning. Udstillingen åbnes af keramiker Peder Rasmussen.Louise Hindsgavls værker er nyskabende i både form og indhold, og med deres til tider hårrejsende fortællinger overskrider de radikalt beskuerens forventning til den klassiske porcelænsfigur og dens helstøbte øjebliksbillede. Flere af hendes værker er sammensat af porcelæn og hverdagsobjekter eller elementer med referencer til legetøj, der, til trods for værkernes umiddelbart fortidige look, knytter dem konkret til en verden her og nu.

At VOLTA 9 we are pleased to present YOU AND I ARE NOT SO DIFFERENT, an installation of new works by Christoffer Joergensen. The cinematic title resonates with the artist’s narrative style and his ability to create intriguing fields of tension, for instance between rigid, almost Cartesian grids and a blurry complexity or between abstract patterns and photographic subject matter. For his Grogram images, the artist manually cuts two different photographs into thin strips and then weaves them together to form a new image. Details of photographs of unrelated people and circumstances are united in this way. Once interwoven, the two images influence and to an extent veil each other. The people in them loose their individuality and become types.
