THE TRANSFORMATIONS — Phuc Van Dang at END OF THE LINE — AARHUSMAKERS

New exhibition by Phuc Van Dang: ‘The Transformations’ opens in Skejby Business Park.

Arriving with an empty canvas, an open heart, and his striking signature one-shot, black-on-white style, Horsens-based artist Phuc Van Dang brings his philosophy of becoming to END OF THE LINE for ‘The Transformations’ exhibition opening Thursday, 11th April from 15:00.

In combination with his own works, a collaborative art piece will be created by Aarhus artists. This forms the culmination of a 10-hour intensive workshop guided by Van Dang, where a collective of local artists, brought together by AARHUSMAKERS, have responded to Van Dang’s work through sound, light, moving image and digital art.

The public is invited to witness the intimate process of reworking, as Van Dang’s renderings become something you can hear, see, feel, touch and read.

After decades of artistic practice reflecting on the story of his life – as a designer, creative, teacher, and a refugee – Van Dang asks artists and audiences alike to get comfortable with the beautiful, raw, and strange feeling of transformation.

Alongside Van Dang, The Transformations will feature new creative expressions from: Maria Płażek, Mariana Gil Photography, VHS-Fabrikken, Mathieu Durand, KIRSE, Juanjo Keena, Alex Newman, Jan Nixon, and Rosanna Stevens.

“I think if we take away all these lines and restrictions about what transformation is and say, you can transform whatever you want to do in your life, then you can make a decision, and believe in it.” - Phuc Van Dang.

View the process: The public is invited to see the exhibition come to life at END OF THE LINE from April 8-11 between 11:00-15:00 to watch Van Dang transform the space ahead of opening night.

transformations-phuc-studio — AARHUSMAKERS — Aarhus Art and Culture

Ny udstilling af Phuc Van Dang: ‘The Transformations’ åbner i Business Park Skejby.

Phuc Van Dang bringer sin iøjnefaldende sorte/hvide stil og kraftfulde penselstrøg til galleriet END OF THE LINE i Business Park Skejby med udstillingen “The Transformations”. I kombination med hans analoge værker, indgår et digitalt, kollektivt værk skabt af andre lokale kunstnere i samarbejde med Van Dang.

Det kollektive værk er resultatet af en intensiv 10-timers workshop. Her har AARHUSMAKERS samlet en gruppe Aarhusianske kunstnere, som Phuc Van Dang har guidet gennem en eksperimenterende process.

I denne proces har kunstnerne arbejdet med digitale udtryksformer og værket er således en fortolkning af Van Dangs værkere i et radikalt anderledes format.

Publikum inviteres helt ind i processen, der transformerer Van Dangs analoge kunst til noget bevægeligt og forbigående.

Efter årtier som udøvende kunstner reflekterer Phuc Van Dang på sit liv som designer, kunstner, underviser og flygtning. Gennem udstillingen beder han kunstnerne og publikum om at føle sig til rette i den smukke og underlige fornemmelse, der vækkes i én under en transformation.

Udover Van Dangs værker byder The Transformations altså også på et kollektivt kunstværk fra: Maria Płażek, Mariana Gil Photography, VHS-Fabrikken, Mathieu Durand, KIRSE, Juanjo Keena, Alex Newman, Jan Nixon, og Rosanna Stevens.

Kom med ind i processen: Der er fernisering d. 11 april kl 15:00 - 19:00, men inden åbningen må interesserede gerne komme forbi END OF THE LINE fra d. 8. - 11. april mellem 11:00 - 15:00. Her kan de møde kunstneren og se hvordan han transformerer rummet frem mod åbningen.

 

Fernisering: 11 april 2019 - 15:00-19:00, Fri entre
Varighed: 12. april til 14. april 2019 - 11:00-16:00

END OF THE LINE præsenteres af: AARHUSMAKERS
Principal partner: 4IMPROVE A/S Consulting Group, Støttet af: Incuba, Museum Ovartaci, Cklar Service, Attitude Apoteket
