Conversation btw. Marianne Rathje & Marie Thams, Vandrehallen Kunsthal

02 Jun 2022

NEW DATE: On October 11 I’ll be in conversation with linguist Marianne Rathje at Vandrehallen Kunsthal - where we will set questions of gendered language in perspective.

The event is organised in relation to my exhibition person in the Kunsthal, which explores the possibility of setting the genders free, of moving towards a gender neutral language, and it’s personal and societal implications – through film, sound, sculpture and object.

The event will be in Danish.

About the exhibition:
The association Den Frie is Denmark’s oldest artist association and the exhibition presents works by the association’s artists and invited guests. The association is an artistic community where artists gather across generations, practices and artistic attitudes to explore new artistic ideas and concepts.

The starting point for Den Frie 22 is the concept of atmosphere – a mood in a room or a tone that strikes. An atmosphere is constantly changing and is always influenced by a given space and all it encompasses.

All members of the association, as well as this year’s invited guest exhibitors – Ester Fleckner, Rune Bosse and Marie Thams – are invited to respond with works in one of the categories: action, euphoria, melancholy, spirituality, depending on the atmosphere they see their works belong to.

The exhibition is curated by artists Sophia Kalkau and Milena Bonifacini.

Memorial hanging for artists Mogens Møller (member 1978 – 2021) and Ingvar Cronhammar (member 2006 – 2021).
