Soil Studies – new Danish photography of nature is an exhibition about “soil” as concrete, physical material, and as the cultural basis of belonging and identity. The exhibition brings together the works of five Danish art photographers. With a primary focus on Denmark, the works in the exhibition also reach beyond and into the Greenlandic and Icelandic landscapes: rock, sea, botany and the human body meet in very experimental and spatial works.
The artists of the exhibition each have their own approach in working with the theme but they share an interest in using the image-creating process itself as a source of knowledge and to express personal experience, and they testify to both cultural, scientific and emotional meanings of the earth beneath our feet. The artists are Lotte Fløe Christensen, Ditte Knus Tønnesen, Inuuteq Storch, Veronika Geiger, and Kirstine Autzen.
Co-curated by Beate Cegielska, director at Galleri Image, Denmark and artist Kirstine Autzen. Supported by the Danish Art Foundation.
