The presented artists use the artist book’s intimate, tactile and sensual space to get in touch with and share experienses in connection with a major life change. When serious disease happens. When somebody close dies. When reality becomes a self-study. Going through mournful periods. Exploring the circle of life and death. Investigating the construction and articulation of memory, the existence individually and in affiliation with others. 

In the exhibition the two artist’s unique and handmade books ”Untitled Family Album #1” by María Kristín H. Antonsdóttir and ” Mod er mærker” by Lene Harbo Pedersen will be showcased together with visualization of the process material of sketches, archives, collages, reliefs, photographs, albums, nature elements and text. 

The content of the process in the making of them and the collaborations with other artistst, the exhibition will show the investigations, considerations of approaches and perspectives until the final choices of medium, method and material made.

Material Analogues | F19 

8.juni - 16.juni 2019

Together with Copenhagen Photofestival, and two other photoartists: Inanna Riccardi & Elina Johanna Heise, I would like to welcome you to our upcoming exhibition, Material Analogues. You can read more on the link below:


Material Analogues presents various works that revolve around notions of memory, family, identity, and how these concepts are influenced by and represented in different historical periods. The three artists involved invite the audience into their worlds on the basis of archive material from their own families.

The exhibition is being held in the apartment of one of the artists, to highlight how an intimate and private moment is necessary when dealing with these compelling and delicate issues.

We invite the audience into a private home, where the private surroundings create a different and meaningful frame for three stories about family, memory and identity.


8. juni: Vernissage from 17-20.
9. juni: 15-19
