Curator: Internationalistisk Ideale
Opening and launch of Internationalistisk Ideale #3: April 29 2010, 5 – 9 PM
What is the function of visual art in a culture increasingly affected by an accelerated image flux? And how does the contemporary artist navigate in the expansive image culture without contributing to the overstimulation and the exhaustion?
These are some of the questions posed in the exhibition Ce n’est pas une image juste, c’est juste une image, which is curated by Danish art journal Internationalistisk Ideale. In conjunction with the opening, Internationalistisk Ideale will be launching its third issue entitled The Aesthetic Turn. For the exhibition the editors, Marie Kølbæk Iversen, Camma Juel Jepsen and Louise Hold Sidenius, have chosen a line of artists, who pay particular attention to and thematize the medium and the materials with which they work – in the gleam of their actualness.
“Instead of just ”being”, everyday consumer goods now insist on serving as socio-cultural signifiers in a self-orchestration of the individual’s life. The arts has the possibility of placing its focus elsewhere: where the stroke is nothing but a line, and the image is a picture of itself: an image of an image.”
The title of the exhibition, Ce n’est pas une image juste, c’est juste une image, is a quote by French-Swiss film director Jean-Luc Godard, which in English translates to ”This is not a just image, it is just an image.”
On May 30 2010 at 3 PM, Internationalistisk Ideale hosts a combined book release and talk featuring Marie Kølbæk Iversen, Ferdinand Ahm Krag, and Lars Bang Larsen.
