Galleri Christoffer Egelund is proud to present the group exhibition Fly By’s. The exhibition was curated in cooperation with Anders Brinch and Morten Steen Hebsgaard and presents an international line-up of nine progressive artists, who all individually reflect the contemporary art scene of today. Consequently, visitors can see new works by: Sören Hüttel (DK), Ghost of a Dream (US), Gudrun Hasle (DK), Andreas Schulenburg (DE/DK), Helgi Thorsson (IS), Tom Fruin (US), Mats Adelman (SE), Jesper Dalgaard (DK) and Matt Franks (UK). Each of these nine artists incorporate their own unique style into sculptural, light or wall works. They come together from different parts of the world and converge in the same space, ready for a Fly By at Galleri Christoffer Egelund, where they will have room for everything from quiet passages to wilder excesses.
