Each has a distinct Nordic coolness – with hints of color, craziness, messy teenage rooms, old superstitions, and particular cultures within other cultures. Quite a range of themes are explored within these five projects. Therefore we are super proud to announce that thanks to the generous support of Nordic Culture Point the festival guests now have the chance to experience five different FUTURES exhibitions at the festival center from 6 to 16 June.

Oslo Photography Art School – Group Exhibition – Glowing Silence

Oslo Fotokunstskole presents "Glowing Silence," an exhibition featuring student work inspired by light and its dual role in photography. The pieces showcase various styles and levels open to interpretation and quiet reflection.

Marte Bjerkmo, one of the students, describes her work: "I have taken a picture of two people that is overexposed, almost glowing. I wanted to depict their existence or non-existence while removing what could identify them, including gender and orientation. Without typical portrait details, it's hard to understand who they are or make prejudices. Gender is irrelevant, but you still try to solve the 'riddle' of their identity. The project was influenced by the AIDS epidemic in the 20th century that killed so many queer people. The glowing figures convey mystery and uncertainty, portraying lives that were never lived."

Oslo Fotokunstskole focuses on photography and film education, with around 100 students taught by professional artists. The exhibition, curated by the school's teachers and head, will be displayed in containers at the Copenhagen Photo Festival.

Join the Festival's Exclusive Guided Tour to Louisiana

Step into The Detour of Identity, a groundbreaking exhibition where the enigmatic works of Roni Horn meet the cinematic genius of masters like Hitchcock and Bergman. The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art invites CPF festival pass guests to the museum (with a 25% discount) and a free guided tour of the Roni Horn exhibition on Wednesday, June 12th at 16.30.  Unveiling hidden layers of eroticism and desire, this Nordic debut of Horn’s art promises an unforgettable journey through the subtle and profound.

About The Artist

The Detour of Identity marks the first major solo presentation of Roni Horn (b. 1955) in the Nordic region. Renowned as one of the most influential and acclaimed contemporary artists, Roni Horn's work spans photography, drawing, and sculpture. A distinctive figure in contemporary art, known for her extensive work in photography, sculpture, and drawing—her primary medium. Her exhibitions have been featured in leading museums worldwide, and she is also an accomplished writer with numerous published books. Central to Horn's art is the exploration of identity. She poses fundamental questions about self, gender, emotional language, and the relationship between nature and humanity. Her artworks serve as concrete responses, open to interpretation. 

Discounts for Guests with a Festival Pass

Helle Søndergaard, the arts facilitator at Louisiana, will take you on a tour of the current exhibition featuring acclaimed American contemporary artist Roni Horn. Horn's work spans multiple media, including film and photography. The exhibition, characterized by a seemingly razor-sharp and cool aesthetic, contrasts themes of humanity and landscape, permanence and changeability, and obscurity and transparency, all expressed through the dynamic interplay of light, water, and weather.

The exhibition delves into themes of subtle undertones, secret messages, and erotic signals, showcasing Horn’s art in dialogue with classic films by directors such as Bergman, Dreyer, von Trier, Chabrol, and Hitchcock. These pairings reveal the profound influence of cinema on Horn’s work and highlight an intense focus on sexuality, the body, eroticism, and desire—elements often hidden beneath the surface of her conceptual imagery. Key works from throughout her career are featured, illustrating these intricate themes.

The conversation will delve into Brotherus' latest exhibition, “IN THE ARCHITECT'S HOUSE: ELINA BROTHERUS ON ALVAR AALTO," exploring her portrayal of fictional female figures within Alvar Aalto's architectural masterpieces in Finland and France. They will examine Brotherus' manipulation of reflections and mirrors in her photography, as well as her unique ability to create three-dimensional depth on a flat surface, resulting in her signature painterly quality.

About The Artist

Elina Brotherus' art oscillates between autobiographical and art historical approaches. Initially focused on subjective experiences, her work has evolved to explore the human figure, landscape, and the artist-model relationship. Based in Helsinki, Finland, and Avallon, France, Brotherus holds an MA in Photography from the University of Art and Design Helsinki and an MSc in Chemistry from the University of Helsinki. Among her honors are the Artist Professorship Grant from the Arts Promotion Centre Finland and Carte Blanche PMU, France. Her works are featured in over 80 public collections worldwide, including the Pompidou Centre in Paris, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark, LACMA in Los Angeles, and the Moderna Museet in Stockholm.
