Soloexhibition by Sofie Hesselholdt & Vibeke Mejlvang
Charlotte Fogh Contemporary has the great pleasure to present Vibeke Mejlvang and Sofie Hesselholdts second solo exhibition at the gallery, “Larger Horizons in the Neighbourhood”. The exhibition features new sculptures, tableaus and installations and takes the temperature of the mental climate here and now.
The artworks investigate our Western lives and values in the beginning of the millennium and how they are affected by the mass media, consume, fear of terrorism and the aliens.
By different tableaus of ceramic sculptures, installations and objects like Persian carpets, small living rooms and a stuffed alligator, the viewer is led trough a mental and physical trip in the humorous and critical landscape of the exhibition.
The exhibition also offers a new book : ”Hesselholdt & Mejlvang – Uorden / Disorder” – a book of the artworks of the previous years and with text in Danish and English by art historian Inger Marie Hahn Møller.

Thatcher Projects is pleased to announce the opening of Coming Together an exhibition of sculptures by the Munich and New York-based duo Venske & Spänle. Defying the confines of their marble medium, the artists’ amorphous works evoke the forms of primordial creatures.
Like a newly discovered species, Venske & Spänle’s carved marble organisms give rise to a distinct nomenclature and genealogy. Smörfs, gumpfoten, helotrophen, sauger, orophyten and a variety of other characters populate the marble family of Venske & Spänle’s sculptural world. Bulbous and swelling, or stretching and slinking, the forms seem poised at the point of motion, almost capable of expanding beyond their marble skin. Disarmingly organic, the sculptures exude individual identities and personalities. With human-like characteristics, Venske & Spänle’s marble life forms radiate an undeniable appeal that probes the concept of the human as a companion to these marble sculptures and consciously explores the interaction between human beings and the sculptural environment created by the artists. The installation will incorporate a 3-D animation, linking the actual sculptures to their cyber-space counterparts, blurring the real and the digital worlds they inhabit.
The sculptures have been exhibited and placed in collections throughout the globe; including the U.S. and Europe, India, Australia, and Japan. Coming Together marks Venske & Spänle’s third exhibition at Thatcher Projects. A recently published hardcover catalogue, Guide Through the Sculptural World of Venske & Spänle, is available at the gallery.
It gives us great pleasure to invite you to our first solo exhibition of the American artist Sage Vaughn.
Sage Vaughn (born 1976 in Jackson, Oregon) lives and works in Los Angeles. The Californian by choice began his artistic career with graffiti and street art in the streets of Los Angeles. Over recent years, street art has grown into a globally networked scene in which applied architecture and city criticism, design and art in public spaces merge to create new, experimental forms of expression. This is where Vaughn, who knows the scene well, comes in. His pictures not only reveal the influence of the genre, they translate motifs from design, art or street lives into classic oil paintings.
In terms of content, the “Nobody’s young” exhibition revolves around questions of identity as well as the psychological background and conditions of human existence. Vaughn’s protagonists seem to be searching for themselves against the background of their urban, often problematic life reality. The “Wildlives” series of pictures, a work in progress since last year, takes up the magic and the peculiarity of everyday American life on the West Coast. Just as ornithologists study their winged wonders in peace, Vaughn examines the astounding and enigmatic personalities that people carry within themselves. He is particularly interested in children. He puts them in costumes and masks which do not, however, hide their personality, but rather underline their individuality and vulnerability.
A second series entitled “Migration” reverses the perspective. A crowd of shouting, screaming, gesticulating people can be seen as a grey background. The crowd appears driven, hurrying after fluttering, colourful butterflies. The brightly coloured specimens are portrayed in the foreground with clearly dripping paint as a luring, fleeting phenomenon in keeping with their nature.
