20 Nov 13:30 - 15:00
Location: Aaben Dans

Working with the media of film, performance and sculpture, the three artists artists Emilia Bergmark, Jules Fischer and Kim Mejdahl are concerned with analysing and critiquing the systems by which we humans impose order and meaning on the world.

The film works represent different takes on worldmaking, and through elaborate installations, humour, and a cornucopia of aesthetic expressions they deal with themes such solitude, anxiety and forms of resistance to the status quo.

The films will be introduced by curator Sarah Pihl Petersen and after the screening the two artists will engage in an artist talk moderated Milena Høgsberg, director at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Emilia Bergmark is a graduate of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Gerrit Rietveld Academy in the Netherlands and the experimental educational initiative in London, School of the Damned. Based on everyday stories and observations, Bergmark creates poetic installations that combine work with sculpture, writing, design, film and print.

Jules Fischer is a graduate of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and has also studied dance and choreography at the Danish National School of Performing Arts. Fischer works with performances in the intersection of choreography and visual arts and is interested in non-binary and multi-layered identity creation.

Kim Richard Adler Mejdahl is a graduate of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Funen Art Academy. He is a visual artist, filmmaker and musician. In the Danish Broadcasting Corporation series on artists (watch here) he famously cited the theme park BonBon-Land as a major aesthetic influence on his work. Mejdahl is represented in the collection of Museum of Contemporary Art.

Emilia Bergmark og Jules Fischer were both selected to participate at the Bikuben Foundation’s studio programme 2019-2020 where they shared a working space. Kim Mejdahls film work “Hour of Moth” were recently included in the collection of The Museum of Contemporary Art.
