Artist talk // 14:30-15.30

Under Heaven is an on-going photographic project by Halfdan Venlov, photographed at Assistens Cemetery, Copenhagen’s celebrated churchyard-turned-city park.

The exhibition features a series of C-type and Silver Gelatin prints, featuring people, shared moments and details from this green oasis in the middle of the city – in a timeless and romantic rendering of the carefree days of adolescence.

Venlov was drawn to the dualism between the youthful characters and the cemetery at which they met. Going on daily walks around the garden, the artist began engaging with his subjects, taking note of any revealing expressions or intimate gestures when faced with the camera.

Dedicated to the medium of portraiture, Venlov’s artistic practice is based on traditional photographic techniques. ‘Under Heaven’ is photographed over several summers, and the exhibition at Arden Asbæk Gallery will feature never before seen works from the series.
