Book Release: Out In The Open, Malene Landgreen @ Motto Charlottenborg 12.06.2013 at 5-8pm

Out in the Open. In Situ / Paintings, Large Scale Installations and more Malene Landgreen Projects 2003 – 2013
“It is with a great deal of delight that I with this book present my most recent work. The book deals primarily with the painting-related work in situ, also referred to as the expanded painting, created during the period 2003-2013.
What I am aiming at through the presentation of images, texts and sketches is to render visible and promulgate certain processes in the artistic treatment. This is done through a selected assortment of painting-installations of a more experimental nature, typically made for exhibition-related contexts in a more provisional perspective, and similarly through a selection of permanent in situ assignments cre- ated inside rooms and buildings, indoors as well as outdoors, also created during this period.
Seen in the clear light of hindsight, certain very early works can now be drawn into the context of space-interventions as the tender buds of the subsequent work with the field of the expanded painting, which I still have a burning desire to explore and unfold.
In this book, six different writers have written succinct essays: an author, two visual artists, an art theorist and two art historians. Each author has chosen a form and has proceeded to write on the basis of his or her chosen angle about a work, about a process or about a context: accordingly, taking a his- torical, a political, a poetic, a philosophical and an art theoretical approach. These text condensations have played a part in determining the form of this book as well as its particular selection of pictures.”

The contributing authors are:
Naja Marie Aidt, Thorbjørn Bechmann, Maria Gadegaard, Carsten Juhl, Vibeke Petersen og Katya Sander.
We look forward to seeing you in the MOTTO Bookstore at Kunsthal Charlottenborg.
To celebrate the occasion Actor Morten Kirkskov reads from the book:
Unruly life is: form, color, movement by Naja Marie Aidt.
Graphic Designer Kim Lykke will be talking about the book’s genesis and there will be chilled white wine.

The Book can this day be purchased for DKK 100 (Normal price DKK 195/€ 26)

The publication is realized with support from the Danish Art Council

“Det er med stor glæde, at jeg kan præsentere mine seneste arbejder med denne bog.
Bogen omhandler primært det maleri-relaterede arbejde in situ, også benævnt det udvidede maleri, udført i tidsrummet 2003-2013.
Jeg ønsker gennem billeder, tekster og skitser at synliggøre og formidle nogle processer i den kunst- neriske bearbejdning generelt gennem udvalgte maleri-installationer af mere eksperimenterende art, som regel til udstillingssammenhænge i et mere midlertidigt perspektiv, men også gennem et udvalg af permanente in situ-opgaver i rum og bygninger, indendørs som udendørs, som jeg også har udført i perioden.
Set i bagklogskabens klare lys kan ganske tidlige værker nu drages ind i sammenhængen af rumin- terventioner som den spæde start på arbejdet med det udvidede maleris felt, som jeg stadig har stor lyst til at udforske og udfolde. I bogen har seks tekstforfattere skrevet mindre essays: en forfatter, to billedkunstnere, en kunstteoretiker og to kunsthistorikere.
Hver især har valgt en form og har skrevet ud fra deres vinkel på et værk, en proces eller en sammen- hæng. Således med både historisk, politisk, litterær, filosofisk og kunstteoretisk tilgang.
Disse tekst-nedslag har været medbestemmende for bogens form og billedvalg.”
De bidragende forfattere er:
Naja Marie Aidt, Thorbjørn Bechmann, Maria Gadegaard, Carsten Juhl, Vibeke Petersen og Katya Sander.
Vi glæder os til at se jer i Mottos boghandel på Kunsthal Charlottenborg.
I dagens anledning vil skuespiller Morten Kirkskov oplæse fra bogen,
Uregerligt liv er: form, farve, bevægelse af Naja Marie Aidt.
Grafisk designer og sparringspartner Kim Lykke vil fortælle om bogens tilblivelse og der vil blive budt på et glas kølig hvidvin.

Bogen kan denne dag købes til 100 kr. (Normal pris195 kr. / 26 €)

Publikationen er realiseret med støtte fra Statens Kunstråd

The painting is folded out from the wall; the wall is folded out into the space. The conception of another space inside the space, which is a part of the art but also a part of the house, a part of the street, a part of life. The potential space, which is adumbrated in the shifting between light and dark in the painting’s and the wall’s surfaces and the time that it takes the senses and the body to understand.
The space that is folded around both viewer and work, in a game of possibilities that is not redeemed until the viewer steps into the space. The work becomes gestated upon the viewer’s entry and the potential is designated within the contours of a game, where the reciprocal work-, viewer- and artist- relationships manifest themselves as tangible interchanges, transpiring right on the spot.
