Kim Wyon & Mahmoud Alibadi · Blind Dates

 

“Blind Dates” explores entanglement, fragility, and hope

This photo exhibition dissects the emotional complexities of human connection. Two complete strangers were brought together in a makeshift studio, tasked with painting each other’s skin opposing colours. This act aimed to equalise and unite them, creating a shared social space.

The project took a dramatic turn as life mirrored art. Artist Mahmoud Alibadi, severely injured before the shoot, co-directed the session via video link. The female model, A.K., arrived with bruises from a recent emergency hospitalisation. These unexpected brushes with mortality added a poignant layer. How did these experiences influence the Blind Date – and the resulting photographs?

All exhibition images are undoctored, uncropped darkroom prints taken using an analogue Hasselblad 500 by art photographer Kim Wyon. This raw, authentic presentation further underscores the project’s themes of vulnerability and connection.

Filmmaker Ryder Pomerleau captured the drama, worry, and joy of the “Blind Dates” project, driving from England in his car to document the Copenhagen shoot. His film will be a central part of the exhibition.

Visitors to the gallery can meet the artists and contributors on all days of the exhibition.
