Exhibitions Opening: Nature Relations / Transience Site | torsdag, 11. juni 2020

At last! June 11th - we are welcoming you to an opening night in Nansensgade no. 10 and 35. Together with Format Artspace www.formatartspace.dk we are focusing on and celebrating art photography in diverse forms ♥



NW Gallery & The Project Room is looking forward to re-opening the doors of its physical and tactile rooms and invite you to the double group- and solo exhibition with artists:



Åsne Eldøy (NO)

Woong Soak Teng (SGP)

Diana Velasco (DK/E)

Miriam H. Nielsen (DK)



The overarching theme of the exhibitions is nature and our relation to it.



The phenomenon of nature can be understood as the physical, tangible or material world - universe. Often the word "nature" is used for all the things that are not normally made by people; weather, flora, fauna, organisms, minerals, land, soil, mountains, desert, celestial bodies and more. Although man is a part of nature, conflict seems to arise as we look at and use nature as a resource to meet our own human needs.



The curation shows how the artists variously work in an intuitive, scientific, physical, material and organic way. Through an experimental approach, the artists immerse themselves in their respective areas where ideas are conceptualized and taken shape. The exhibitions present this artistic quest to the audience.



"Nature Relations" is a group exhibition with three artists from Norway, Singapore and Denmark. In this exhibition our relation to the external nature is examined; the nature we have a physical closeness to - the “invisible” nature that we do not see or notice, but which we are nevertheless totally dependent on.

In the solo exhibition “Transience Site” the human made and the natural world are intermingled in works that are at once futuristic and rooted in the soil. In her very own interpretation of nature- and landscape photography Miriam H. Nielsen combines structures, moments and places into works that are familiar and uncanny at the same time. The photo-based montages are created on paper and as sculptural works through an intuitive working process. Organic, landscape-like, digital and distorted, the works are inspired by nature and our relation to nature. Thus nature is at the core of the imagery, our affinity to and in many ways alienated relation to nature. Within the exhibition space the works make up a progression through an installation, and reflect an interest in how certain processes and materials can be used to challenge the medium of photography and transformation into other media and the physical space.



The exhibitions are curated by Nina Worren and are part of a curatorial exhibition series focusing on nature. Previously, the gallery has shown the exhibitions “Nature Within” and “Interior Landscape”, both exploring the “inner nature”; that we humans are also nature – "human nature" - and our more meditative contact to this side of ourselves.



NW Gallery and The Project Room is an exhibition platform focusing on human topics and existentialist issues dedicated to photography and in each exhibition photography is explored and challenged as a medium and method: What can the photograph - both the camera-based and the camera-less photograph? What opportunities and limitations exist?



The exhibitions allow the audience to get close to the artist and the artistic process, from sketch to finished work. The photographic "Artist Book" has a central place in the gallery's many exhibitions, representing a piece of works in itself.



For the third year in a row, the exhibitions will be part of the Copenhagen Photofestival, which this year is running through the online campaign #cpfcelebratingphotography.
