Talk: Futures Nordic Talents – Meet the Futures

6. June 2021 @ 12:00 - 15:00

Join the Futures Nordic Talents Nanna Navntoft, Essi Maaria Orpana and Lars Dyrendom for a TALK around their project and discover the programme FUTURES NORDIC TALENTS.

Since 2017, FUTURES, a photography platform co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, has nurtured the development of emerging talents selected by partner art institutions and festivals across Europe. 

Copenhagen Photo Festival joined the FUTURES’ platform for its fourth edition, and created a new programme focusing on Nordic talent: FUTURES NORDIC TALENTS

The programme kick-started in January 2021 with an open talent search for upcoming and recent graduates in art or documentary photography residing in the Nordics; includes Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Åland. In February 2021, our Program Committee selected five artists to participate in a series of activities in the spring, including portfolio reviews and Master Classes with leading experts.

As an integral part of our festival we are showcasing the five finalists’ works at our exhibition park at Refshaleøen in June. As the focus of FUTURES NORDIC TALENTS is also experimentation, the finalists are exhibiting their works in solo Camera Houses, designed and built by Bachelor architecture students from the  Institute of Architecture and Design, Royal Danish Academy as well as take part in artists’ talks and activities at the festival. 

In the autumn, the finalists will also take part in various activities, including personalized consultations in printing and mounting at Artproof in Estonia, meet their European photography peers at a FUTURES event, as well as publish their works in two FUTURES’ publications.

Io Sivertsen (Norway), Nanna Navntoft (Denmark), Essi Maaria Orpana (Finland), Lars Dyrendom (Sweden) and Hrafn Jónsson (Krummi) (Iceland).

Our Program Committee has also given special mentions to two other artists for their applications: Laura Konttinen (Finland) and Marie Anine Møller (Denmark).

The five unique Camera Houses have been designed and built by Bachelor students from the Institute of Architecture and Design, Royal Danish Academy, under the supervision of Architect and teacher Kristian Hansen, from Marstal Søfartsmuseum. Head of the Bachelor program is Architect, Associate Professor Jacob Sebastian Bang.
