Group exhibition // On the Verge

1 June - 11 June

Festival ticket

As human and non-human bodies, we share the verge as an ecosystem community, believing that we live in exceptional and challenging times and spaces: we are on the final verge. But we are also on the verge as individuals, urging to transform our existential or artistic starting point to an immortal impact, to reconnect art with collective issues: the verge of developing your sexuality, having a nervous breakdown, leaving the parents’ home, starting school, graduating, writing your will, giving birth, breaking up, making something stupid, or something big, having an accident, doing great art, doing shitty art, having an epiphany, meeting someone new, getting in trouble, supporting a cause, starting a hobby, getting hyper, getting depressed, facing your limitations, or overcoming them. Accomplishing an important project, or starting a new one. Writing history, being forgotten. Big things, small things.

The more than 70 artworks selected are from 7 Futures talents: Cian Burke, Mark Duffy, Pauline Hisbacq, Julia Klewaniec, Alice Pallot, Daniel Szalai and Ugo Woatzi. Across seven individual projects with different processes or aesthetics, they present us their version of being On the Verge. They collectively explore different aspects of the theme through identity, ecology, our relation with the environment, interactions and changes humans can either suffer or decide. Their work invites us to redefine our limits and values and encourages us to commit in favour of what we support and find necessary.

The exhibition is curated by Maja Dyrehauge Gregersen (Copenhagen Photo Festival), Giangavino Pazzola (CAMERA – Centro Italiano per la Fotografia) and Marta Szymańska (FotoFestiwal).
