What happens to an art institution when it has been abandoned by people and nature takes over the reins? In the interface between art and nature, Rune Bosse challenges the boundaries of what an art exhibition can be and how far an art institution is prepared to go in this, his first major solo exhibition.
For his first solo exhibition at an art institution in Copenhagen, Rasmus Nilausen presents site-specific paintings, linking the analogue painting on canvas and walls with a familiar technology in common use while, at the same time, sending a historical nod to one of our most legendary ancestors.
Rasmus Nilausen’s paintings in his solo exhibition Bluetooth are full of signs, symbols and references to everything from Harald Bluetooth, technical communication devices, and art historical connections. This evening you can meet the artist, who will join us all the way from Barcelona, where he is currently based, to take us through the exhibition Bluetooth and in conversation with art history professor Jacob Wamberg talk about signs and symbols in the exhibition and in painting today. Please note that the talk will be in Danish.
Overgaden is proud to be able to offer the upcoming art scene a unique boost in the coming years by being the first art institution in Denmark to give young artists the opportunity to enter into a long-term development programme. For many years Overgaden has been working closely with newly educated artists, and on this background it has become evident that many young artists could benefit from a strengthening of a viable artistic career with international potential.
