On-going: 30th of June – 2nd of September 2012, Toves Galleri (Copenhagen)
Un_Curate_Able is an exhibition project in three parts, organized, curated and produced by the artists at Tove’s Gallery. The project unfolds over the summer of 2012 in the following stages:
1. An uncurated group exhibition in Tove’s own premises, which examines and presents the current interests of Tove’s artists.
2. A re-curating of the exhibition in Fatforms space, an artist and curator-collective in Amsterdam. In this exhibition, Tove’s artists mix the roles of artist and curator, and thus renegotiate the initial positions of the first exhibition.
3. And finally, a contribution to the art fair during Copenhagen Art Festival, in which the three stages of Un_Curate_Able are documented in a live editing and production process, that results in a publication presented on a finissage at Tove’s Gallery.

Vernissage: 22nd of June 2012, Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art (Copenhagen)
Every summer, Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art invites artists to curate an exhibition with a focus on the latest tendencies in contemporary art. This year the art group A Kassen, curates the show and present their own view of interesting art right now, inviting 12 Danish and International artists to take part in the exhibition. The title of the show, Life Clock, is taken from one of the works by French artist Bertrand Planes. The piece consist of a clock that does not record time as normally — in hours and minutes — but instead counts years and age approximated from the average lifespan of a Frenchman. The clock is adjusted so that it’s 54.800 times slower than a normal clock and keeps time with the artists’ actual age. With this simple gesture, Bertrand Planes changes our perception of time from anonymous, collective and perhaps meaningless — to an image of personal vanity and a reminder of the transience of life.
One of Konsthopp’s good friend in Copenhagen, Amir Zainorin, was present at the opening night and took some shots. Enjoy!
