68 Square Metres will be decamping to Hamburg to show three young and exciting Danish artists, Astrid Myntekær, David Stjernholm, and Jacob Jessen. Opening Friday 5 September, also open on Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to pop by, and to visit all the other guests from Copenhagen at many venues around HH – it’s all part of the City Link festival.
From 22 – 30 November 68m2 Art Space and associated Default Network members will be in Hamburg taking part in the exhibition Kopenhagen in Hamburg at Gängerviertel. In keeping with the theme, 68m2 will be showing a small selection of works by some of the Danish artists the space has exhibited in its time, including Katrine Dirckinck-Holmfeld and Jacob Sikker Remin.
We’ll also be joined by several members of PB43, the working collective in Copenhagen where 68m2 has its home. They’ll be providing the music at the party on the 30th…

68m2 invites you to become part of the new work In Older Kingdoms, a collaborative project by Martin Thaulow and Rudi Arapahoe. An installation combining video, audio and the web, it features 5 video layers which are mapped and projected in the exhibition space, and auditive landscapes which are triggered by movement in the space. Real time video from the exhibition space becomes part of the 5 projected video layers, which are merged into one, and together with the audio broadcast on a Livestream channel on the internet. In Older Kingdoms is thus created live by you in the gallery, and also allows you to view its constantly changing forms from cyberspace. It deals with time, decay and the parallel universes we all live in and interact with.
The investigation of these themes continues in the second installation, Contraction. 6.500 meters of gift ribbon hang from the ceiling, forming a forest to go adventuring in. At the heart of the installation a video loop shows a modern dance performed in an old brick factory, danced by a woman who was a modern ballet dancer some 30-40 years ago. The installation playfully and provocatively merges fantasy and reality, working with the invisible borders. Contraction is Martin Thaulow and Rudi Arapahoe’s previous collaboration.
