Art in a Day presents: Baby Dee / Sophie Dupont / Martin Creed

One month until Art in a Day fills Copenhagen with spectacular performances. Among other things you can experience a performance about breathing, a cacophonous sound work with the city’s church bells and a magnificent Gothic musical performance inspired by phantom of the opera. Read more about the three performances here:
BABY DEE – ‘Where Oceans Know Us’
🕛 24 June at 15.00
📍 Nikolaj Kunsthal / @nikolajkunsthal

The American performer (and former organist!) Baby Dee takes over Nikolaj Kunsthal with a magnificent, gothic ‘phantom-of-the-opera’ musical performance of organ music, with Mabe Fratti on the cello. By all accounts this performance will appeal especially to those of you who despise good behaviour.
 
 SOPHIE DUPONT – ‘I Breathe You, Do You Breathe Me?’
🕛24 June, 11:00–18:00
📍 Kunsthal Charlottenborg, upper foyer / @kunsthalcharlottenborg

The pulsating sound of Sophie Dupont and her co-performers’ breathing is sent out through speakers in Kunsthal Charlottenborg’s upper foyer. In the course of a performance lasting all day Dupont is both conductor and instrument of their breaths as she invites those present to share a moment with her, a quiet dance anchored in their breathing – can we connect with each other by breathing together?

MARTIN CREED – ‘All the Bells’
🕛 23 June at 11:22 
📍 In front of Kunstforeningen GL STRAND / @kunstglstrand
 
For three minutes the streets of the inner city are filled with a deafening, cacophonous sound work created by Martin Creed, Copenhagen's church bells, the voices of primary school children and the city's soundscape. Join us when the Turner award-winning artist launches the 24-hour performance festival Art in a Day in front of GL STRAND already on 23 June at 11:22.
@martin_creed @sophie_dupont #babydee 
 
We look forward to seeing you!
 
@denfrieudstillingsbygning, @copenhagen_contemporary, @nikolajkunsthal @overgaden_, @kunsthalcharlottenborg , and @kunstglstrand

Full program ready for international exhibition on significant sites in Copenhagen 

The contemporary world is, some say, marked by a predominant feeling of stress or anxiety. At state of being that is simultaneously angst filled and driven by desire, controlled by a protocol for how to live and perform in our contemporaneity. The exhibition Copenhagen. Red Light Green Light (In the Realm of the Senses) takes off from this mixed state of tension, tenderness and lifeforce.

The exhibition is shown at Kunsthal Charlottenborg and moves on to locations in the city of Copenhagen, where six international contemporary artists present installations, video and performances at six different locations in Copenhagen – portraying, so to speak, the mental state of the world we live in. 

It is formed as a living entity, taking shape at various locations, opening at different hours of the day, and different days of the months and should therfore be seen over time.

The participating artists are: Geumhyung Jeong, Cecilia Bengolea, Cally Spooner, Ylva Snöfrid, Korakrit Arunanondchai, Alex Baczyński-Jenkins. 
The exhibition is curated by Charlotte Sprogøe and realized in collaboration with University of Copenhagen, The Agency for Culture and Palaces – National Museum of Denmark, The Lapidarium of Kings, Ejendommen Buen. 

See the full program by following link in bio. 

The opening is held 10 June at Kunsthal Charlottenborg at 17-21 and at the Lapidarium of Kings at 18-20. The exhibition will take place in inner city Copenhagen 11 June – 10 July 2022.

Art in a Day presents: JULES FISCHER / VALIE EXPORT / KASPERSOPHIE 
 
Today we highlight three artists from our Art in a Day programme on 24 June.

The total installation “VANITAS” by visual artist and choreographer Jules Fischer @team_tender  takes you into a dark and dreamy world of queer bodies ruled by change and transience. VANITAS is filled with ambivalence and everything is in a constant state of flux as a tribute to queer and trans communities everywhere and to those who need to change to become whole.
 
JULES FISCHER – ”VANITAS”
🕛 23 June, 23:00
📍 @denfrieudstillingsbygning 
 
 
VALIE EXPORT @ateliervalieexport, a pioneer in early feminist performance art and an important voice in gender policy debates. During Art in a Day, she invites you to interact with her film, “Ping Pong”, using a ball and a racquet. ‘Ping Pong’ explains the relationship of power between producer (director, screen) and consumer (viewer).
 
VALIE EXPORT – “Ping Pong”
🕛 Shown on a loop. Starting at 00:01. VALIE EXPORT performs at 14:00
📍 Festsalen, Kunstakademiet / @kunsthalcharlottenborg 
 
The Danish design and artist duo KASPERSOPHIE @kaspersophie_studio presents the interactive art experience, “Peuple”. Here you enter the department store Magasin and see a seductive large-format advertising print of a folk costume in child size. The visual clash between the folk costume and the department store's contemporary consumer goods makes people stop and marvel. What is it? Is it for sale? And who is it for?
 
KASPERSOPHIE – “Peuple”
🕛 10:00–20:00
📍 Magasin, Kongens Nytorv. Sales stand on the ground floor
