The exhibition-space Sydhavn Station is located at a S-train station in the outskirts of Copenhagen. The artist-driven exhibition-space displays contemporary art at the station, and has created a cultural meeting point at this everyday place, which would usually not contain artworks. It is important for us to show the wide breadth of contemporary art and to help open the art scene for both foreign artists, newly graduated and elderly artists. The exhibition venue was launched in 2012 by 10 artists and is now contains 12 members, some of which are graduated from academies around Europe.
For Alt_Cph 18:
AGAR AGAR is a group of sculptures, which slowly can dissolve into nothing. If treated correct, the high-protein plantbased material can act as eatable capsules - now, or in a future with exhausted reserves.
AGAR AGAR will be served as hors d’oeuvres during the opening night.

Continuosly slowed down by our perception of ourselves
From picture to sculpture, from mind to body.
A lead (me, the artist) + backups/extras (my assistants aka friends). We are wearing matching outfits while putting up posters with wallpaper paste. A sort of unrehearsed choreography.

This project has its starting point in questions of documentation, representation and mimesis. Can text be a documentation of photography, or will it be limited to only function as an explanation of the motive?
Dit spørgsmål er mit frø
What will be the next hot topic on the art-scene of tomorrow. Will Davy Gray or Vermilion Sand be the best choice of background color in your next installation. Do you have a question, any question related to art, you can bring to us, and we will give you an answer, with help from the very best?
