Line Skywalker Karlström og Frida Sandström Bogsamtale: Holes Dug, Rocks Thrown (samtalen foregår i Bogcaféen almindelig brand)

01.02.23

Sorry, this entry is only available in Dansk. For the sake of viewer convenience, the content is shown below in the alternative language. You may click the link to switch the active language.

BCAB (Bogcaféen Almindelig Brand) i samarbejde med Astrid Noacks Atelier.

OBS! Samtalen foregår i BCAB, Baldergade 70, 2200 København kl. 17-19.

Bogen “Holes Dug, Rocks Thrown – Line Skywalker Karlström’s Works Through the Prism of Queer and Feminist Art Practices” er den første omfattende præsentation af billedkunstneren Line Skywalker Karlströms praksis. I overensstemmelse med Skywalker Karlströms opfattelse af at kunst i bedste fald består af kaotisk og associativ vidensproduktion, som formes i en samarbejdende og igangværende samtale, er deres bog blevet en bastardmonografi, hvor en kunstnerisk praksis beskrives gennem dens relationer og flok.

BCAB og ANA har inviteret Line at diskutere deres bog med denne flok som prisme. Hvordan er f.eks. forholdet mellem kunstens relationer og de abstrakte relationer som samfundets arbejdsdeling skaber? Vokser flokken gennem eller udenom det formelle kunstbegrebs rum og identifikationer?

I mere end 20 år har Line Skywalker Karlströms beskæftiget sig med “queer verdensskabelse” gennem brug af kropsliggørelse og blød materialitet. Med udgangspunkt i “at tænke med kroppen” og erfaringer af ekskludering/inkludering, appellerer den til steder, rum og kunsthistorien med poetiske, flygtige bevægelser som sigter mod på samme tid at repræsentere og destabilisere, skjule sig og nægte. Med afsæt i queermetode, forholder Line sig til emner og materialer på en associativ og promiskuøs måde og bruger sparsomlighedens begrænsninger som motor i sin æstetik.

Wojciech Laskowski Laspin & Marianne Søgaard Sørensen Transformations

11.02.23 - 18.02.23

Opening: Saturday 11.2. at 2pm–6pm

The artistic process of creation is in itself a form of transformation. Transformation of experiences, observations and fascinations into new expressions, forms, materials and contexts, which in turn can trigger new observations and thoughts in both the viewer and the artist herself.

By reworking his photo documentation of randomly appearing visual constellations in the street life, Wojciech Laskowski Laspin directs attention to these and transforms them into new forms and images with their own autonomy.

Marianne Søgaard Sørensen has transformed items of clothing, donated by friends and friends of friends, into 4 objects that represent the givers’ chains of relationships, but at the same time bear traits from traditional rag rugs and the conception of resources they expressed.

Open: Every day at 5pm-7pm and Saturday 18.2. at 2pm-6pm

Saturday 18.2. at 4pm: Art as a Learning Process

Bodil Krogh Andersen & Martin Christoffer Lund the nordhavn mountains – a project about the displacement of natural resources & the expansion of land areas

06.03.23 - 09.04.23

at Nordhavnstippen in Copenhagen

the waste products of the construction industry accumulate into small mountains

which in the long term is filled in the port

as a foundation

for the expansion of the city’s land areas

new land areas are dammed with concrete

steel reinforcement

and large stones from blasted mountains

are shipped to Denmark from southern Norway

if you sit on the pier and look out over the sea

is it perhaps on a slice of a mountain

you sit on

and if you dig in the ground at the city’s land expansion

fragments of urban cultural history may appear

Naomi Kawase at 4pm Terrassen presents

29.12.22

4pm: Embracing (1992), 40’

5pm: Katatsumori (1994), 40’

6pm: Sky,Wind,Fire,Water,Earth (2000), 50’

7pm: See Heaven (1995), 10’ + Sun on the Horizon (1996), 45’

(NB: Sake, tea and soup will be served)

Terrassen is a nomadic cinema in Copenhagen that investigates the social life of film. All screenings are free and everyone is welcome.

My early works were shot mostly in 16mm and on Super 8. The great thing about Super 8 is that it captures details so well. It can be very subtle in how it communicates them to the public. Digital video has it own benefits, but screening Super 8 films had to be done in a private room, with a projector. This was the only way to share my work with the audience, and it felt private and intimate, like a diary. It was an ideal format.

Sara Hamming, Anja Jacobsen and A. Performance: LOST TITLE #4 – December 17th at 4 pm

17.12.22

LOST TITLE – a cycle of testimonies of waste.

A LOST TITLE. manifestation has previously been shown in Astrid Noack’s Atelier with a choir, who sang compositions of testimonies from meetings with waste professionals, and others who picks up inside and outside.

A host of notes, in dochmiac, the crying rhythm.

(…)

The research that I couldn’t really figure out how to do

Overwhelmed, that which has happened.

…Stood still for a long time (stiffened?), I thought that what I had learned – or tried to recreate, had become waste

that I had been so stupid that I had wasted..

…then I copied “the whole thing” (Grinning Face With Sweat emoji) unsorted, into a book

a kind of eternal life, regained

(…)

A desire for compost

This time I’ll walk with A, the composer:

To do together. Exist in A.

A sings to me as I walk, while I put my head into the book and look for something I can use

A knocks.

A sings for the book, which we put our heads into and look for something we can use

Everything is inside the book

I will also call A.

Still no images of trash.

The face which is exactly the same as hers

10 pairs of new shoes and shame.

Have I used A?

A has used me too!

When you say I haven’t done my research, haven’t sorted through it, I can just say (quote from the book)

that I have done it with my whole body, have felt it, tried to excrete it, with my whole body.

Etc.

Mie Lund Om sorg

31.10.22 - 11.12.22

In the exhibition, Mie Lund is occupied with the often overlooked and undervalued acts of care which continuously take place in the attempt to preserve the vulnerable building of Astrid Noack’s Atelier. Based on conservation methodologies and performative acts, the exhibition will resemble an updated surveyor’s report that uncovers the ‘abject’ material resources that lie hidden in the space – and which resonate intimate relationships and mental states. Products such as CO2, patina, dirt particles, plastic waste, etc. are not normally considered assets that can be valued. On the other hand, they are often regarded as insignificant (surplus) products that simply relate to decay, maintenance, conservation and care work. The exhibition title Om sorg* reflects the interaction between our experienced, physical and material reality and our mental states with an eye to the body’s resources and (wound) healing process.

During 4 weeks, Mie Lund has collected materials from recent years’ work at Rådmandsgade 34, Astrid Noack’s former studio building. The following events are results of this process.

Thursday, 1 December from 4pm-8pm.: Opening of Om sorg

Saturday, 3 December from 11am – 1pm: Demonstration of flint knapping by archaeologist Sofus Stenak. Conversation between Sofus Stenak and Mie Lund about man’s oldest craft and the traces of the individual on the materials.

Sunday, 11 December at 4pm – 6pm: Finissage of Om sorg and dedication of “Gentrification Monument 1” in the backyard by the association Astrid Noack’s Atelier. A bronze cast commemorative plaque with inscription is unveiled and erected. Klejner by Jesper Aabille and gløgg will be served.

Open: Fridays and Saturdays from 1pm-5pm or by appointment (email: mielun@gmail.com)

The exhibition is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation and the Council for Visual Arts, Copenhagen Municipality.

*Om sorg translates to English; about grief, but it is also a paraphrase of the noun omsorg that translates from Danish to English by the word and action of care. 

BIO: Mie Lund is preoccupied with material theory – the teaching and perception of materials, and how it contributes to a physically experienced reality and mental health. Concepts such as conservation, valuing, sustainable (consumption), archiving, historiography and uncovering power structures are central to Lund’s processual and methodical approach to the production of art works, where she often focuses on how the interaction between an individual and collective action is affected by the spatial opportunities and circumstances we are presented with. Educated as both visual artist (DFK/FAA, 2010) and monumental conservator Ba.Sci. (KADK, 2016) Lund’s practice in recent years has been centered around Astrid Noack’s Atelier, also as a board member since 2019. Often site-specific and installation-oriented, Lund works both conceptually and intuitively in several media and traditions – with both performativity and classic sculpture.

About ANA

ANA is a cross-aesthetic space for artistic experiments, knowledge sharing and critical discussion at Ydre Nørrebro in Copenhagen. ANA is dedicated to the notion of art as a public sphere and as a collective reflection tool that can create forms and images making us see and sense, ask questions and think about the world and everyday life in new ways. ANA focuses with and through art on sharing knowledge, testing ideas and presenting alternative horizons of imagination and models of action.

ANA was established in 2009 and has a background in the activist artist collective YNKB (Ydre Nørrebro Culture Bureau). ANA’s program has four tracks: ANA Local, ANA Air, ANA Children and ANA Forum. These draw threads back to the Danish sculptor Astrid Noack’s everyday life and artistic work in the studio in the period 1936-1950, where social and professional exchanges with neighbors and artists from near and far were part of daily life. ANA’s cross-esthetic program links the history of the room with a desire to jointly develop the space, which, as a result of gentrification, is left isolated, cut off from its previous existence as part of a lively backyard environment with workshops and small industry.

Today, ANA stands on the shoulders of the many artists and actors who over the years have contributed to supporting and developing the space. ANA’s institutional modus operandi is rooted in a principle of repetition and slowness. In order to allow artists to develop projects over several years and to gain knowledge of the space and the surrounding rapidly gentrified area – which used to be a typical working class neighbourhood – we emphasize inviting artists on several occasions, so that over time they can continue investigations and conversations. Our desire is to keep things moving, to prioritize process over result and to act as an open, caring, generous and inclusive art space.

In the coming years, we will further try to emphasize values around slowness, contemplation, ‘commoning’ and collective (un)learning. A set of values that moves against the productivity- and efficiency-oriented structures that characterize the surrounding capitalist society and the art institution, and which often result in stress and exhaustion. We want, step by step, to slow the pace and focus on offering artists generous time for reflection and the opportunity to experiment and research in a context where knowledge sharing, negotiation and critical dialogue are at the center.

Overretssagfører L. Zeuthens Mindelegat

Preservation Work

It’s still there. The sculpture studio in Rådmandsgade 34 on Outer Nørrebro in Copenhagen. The sculptor Astrid Noack (1888-1954) lived and worked here under very primitive conditions in the back building in the period 1936-1950. From here she fought her way up through the male-dominated art world of the time, and created some of her most significant works.

In 2010, the Foundation Rådmandsgade 34 was formed with the aim of gently restoring the studio. In September 2016, as the first important step in the Foundation’s work, the restoration of the part of the backyard where Astrid Noack lived and had a studio began. The restoration was realised with support from the New Carlsberg Foundation and was handled by architect Erik Brandt Dam.

Astrid Noack

Astrid Noack (1888-1954) is one of the twentieth century’s most significant Danish artists. As a sculptor she was inspired by the French tradition, which is characterised by frugality and scarcity of means, and by archaic sculpture. The figures stand in space and small displacements of movements gives life to the sculptures. The sculptures are built up from the inside, from where the displacements are propagated towards the surface and further into the room.

The association

Astrid Noack’s Atelier is an association of which you can be a member. Members and the board are made up of all sorts of people; artists, art historians, cultural workers and everyone who has an interest in ANA’s activities and in the preservation of the old historic building.

The association’s overall purpose is partly to work for the preservation and reuse of Astrid Noack’s Atelier in Rådmandsgade 34, and partly to continuously develop the space into a living platform for artistic experimentation, critical discussion and knowledge sharing.

Become a member

We need you if Astrid Noack’s Atelier is to be preserved and developed for posterity.
