Gallery Poulsen på Pulse New York 2015


Henrykte og begejstrede er Gallery Poulsen draget til New York for at præsentere fem fantastiske kunstnere på den tiende udgave af Pulse Contemporary Art Fair New York. Med rigtig gode erfaringer fra sidste års deltagelse på Pulse Miami er det med helt sikre hænder, at vi nu hænger værker på væggene af Aaron Johnson, Christian Rex van Minnen, Jean-Pierre Roy og Nicola Verlato. Derudover præsenterer vi videokunst af William Powhida på Pulse Play – en kurateret platform for video og nye digitale medier.

Pulse har i år annonceret emnet ’Fremtiden’ som messens tematiske ramme, hvorunder vi virkelig føler os hjemme. Selvom de fire kunstnere alle arbejder med det traditionsrige og sagnomspundne maleri, så er det først og fremmest innovativ historiefortælling og eksperimenterende håndværk, som de viser for os.

Uigennemskuelige kompositioner, livlige perspektiver og gennemarbejdede detaljer får os til at gribe om motiverne. Øjet bedrages, men det er heldigvis en yderst behagelig og forunderlig oplevelse, som disse kunstnere skaber. Fremtiden er altid lige om hjørnet, men her er den banebrydende visualiseret og lige foran øjnene på os. 

Som et ekstra sidestykke til disse fire kunstnere er William Powhida blevet nøje udvalgt og inviteret til at deltage i Pulse Play, hvor han viser værket ”Exit Interview”. Fyldt med humor, ironi og sarkasme kritiserer Powhida kunstverdenens arrogance og til tider selvhøjtidelighed. Et emne som han desuden netop nu også udfolder hjemme i Gallery Poulsen med soloudstillingen ”Dear Copenhagen”, der åbnede i sidste uge. I værket ”Exit Interview” får en ukendt skuespiller rollen som den fantastiske kunstner William Powhida, der drink for drink langsomt mister både kontrol og værdighed.

Apropos værdighed, så er det med fuldstændig rank ryg og solid stolthed, at vi står på Pulse New York med denne talentfulde gruppe af kunstnere under Armory Week, hvor vi desuden også åbner gruppeudstillingen ”The Copenhagen Interpretation” i The Lodge Gallery i Lower East Side. Nøgleordene for denne udstilling er stædighed, nørderi og innovation, hvilket i den grad også strækker sig op på 125 West 18th Street, hvor Pulse finder sted.

Kom og giv os et eftersyn i stand A8 på Pulse New York, så giver vi til gengæld et kig ind i fremtiden!



Gallery Poulsen at Pulse New York 2015


Gallery Poulsen is delighted to present five fantastic artists at the 10th season of Pulse Contemporary Art Fair New York. Fresh off a great experience at Pulse Miami, we are confidently presenting new works by Aaron Johnson, Christian Rex van Minnen, Jean-Pierre Roy and Nicola Verlato. Additionally, we are presenting “Exit Interview” by William Powhida at Pulse Play – a curated platform for video and new digital media. 

We feel right at home in the context of Pulse’s theme of ‘The Future’ this year, even though our four artists all work within the tradition of figurative painting. It is first and foremost innovative storytelling and experimental approaches to craft that sets their work apart from the history of painting. 

Obscure compositions, vivid perspectives and compelling details lead us to interpret their works. While these painters create convincing illusions to deceive the eye, they do so to offer pleasurable and wonderful experiences for the viewer. The future may always be just ahead of us, but these artists offer ground-breaking visions of what might be around the corner.

As a complement to these four artists William Powhida was selected by curator Billy Zhao to participate in Pulse Play with his 2011 video “Exit Interview”. Filled with humor, irony and sarcasm Powhida criticizes the arrogance and sometimes self-importance of the art world. He also continues this examination of self-importance back at Gallery Poulsen with his recently opened solo show “Dear Copenhagen”. In the video, “Exit Interview” an actor plays the role of the ‘genius’ William Powhida who over the course of a New York Times interview at an upscale restaurant in LA, slowly loses both control and dignity revealing the absolute privilege of the wealthy. 

Speaking of dignity, we are proud to present this talented group of artist at Pulse New York during Armory Week, which also coincides with the opening of our group exhibition “The Copenhagen Interpretation” at The Lodge Gallery in Lower East Side. This show is defined by persistence, geekiness and innovation, which brings us back to the future at 125 West 18th Street where Pulse New York is located.

Come and take a look at our booth A8 at Pulse New York, and we will give you a glimpse of the future!
