INTERNATIONAL Fresh Legs Exhibition 2016
In the annual Fresh Legs open call exhibition for 2016, Galleri Heike Arndt DK proudly presents 13 talented emerging international artists with unique styles, techniques and materials. Key concepts include portraying aspects of humanity as well as concerns about the development of our current society as interpreted by the artist’s individual expressions. Fresh Legs brings bold street art influences mixed with crisp drawings, social criticism with a dash of humor and challenging installations. The result is a mesmerizing and exciting group show that radiates with color and movement.
Artists from around the world applied with more than 500 artworks entered for selection into the Fresh Legs exhibition. After a long and comprehensive screening process, 13 artists were chosen. The Fresh Legs exhibition highlights a curated selection of these as yet undiscovered rough artistic diamonds – and we are excited to follow their journey and see how they will cut and form their artistic edges. Experience the sharp social criticism, the perfectly captured contemporary life, the refined technical skills with strong influences from street art. These artworks bring our attention to the values of our current society in using a large dose of humor. In experimental use of materials and techniques – from drawings, colorful paintings and ceramic sculptures they amaze and draw us in to examine them closer. The works explore human relationships, loneliness and the fragility of the fleeting moment. Many take us on a journey to explore the environment and abandoned places of our time.
