HUMAN ART CULTURAL DIALOGUE
In his project Human Art Cultural Dialogue, the young Armenian photographer Tatev Mnatsakanyan has photographed older, perhaps today, forgotten artists. She has examined the artists' thoughts and concerns across art forms and borders. The portraits include older artists from eg. Egypt, Poland, Norway, Denmark, Austria and Switzerland. The project also points out that artists, who in their youth were pioneering, often first gain recognition after their death.

JAN HOLGER JERICHAU - SCULPTURE
Jan Holger Jerichau (1937-2019) was a sculptor. He worked with sculpture in many different materials - in recent years mainly in wood. Based on the abstract, he became more imaginative over the years: beings and symbols emerge from the carved wood, where the surface is often worked with color, wax or coated with gold leaf. Jan Holger Jerichau was the fourth generation of artist family Jerichau and lived with the legacy of the art that his ancestors had created.

LANDSCAPE BODYSCAPE RELATIONSCAPE
Soil and skin, explorations of what occurs when man and nature become one in intimate bodily encounters, the creative power of the water and the landscapes, are some of what is at stake in Nana Francisca Shottländer's (DK) newly created site-specific works. In a total installation, video works, photos, objects and sound are displayed. The exhibition in Silkeborg is part of a project over several years, where Schottländer explores at more geographical locations explores the encounter between man and nature's phenomena - even when that relationship is uncomfortable.

Morten Juvet's (N) project COVER consists of 45 paintings, all in the same square format - as an record cover. Motivationally, the rabbit constitutes the common, ambiguous metaphor, and all paintings refer to the texts of rock music, where this particular vulnerable, but free animal recur. The artist combines visual parts from the original record covers with his own rabbit language. The project points to a connection across music genres.

ROOT IN THE NORTH REGION
An exhibition that looks outward and upward, namely towards the Nordic Region and the Nordic. The artists have noted a common root in and interest in das Unheimliche, for the Nordic melancholy, for the ambivalence in the encounter between nature and culture, and for the human mysterious identity. Nature is (often) viewed far away from political activities and the view revolves around the energies found in peripheral areas, secret gardens - a terrain vague on the edge of nature and culture. Graphics will be the exhibition bearing media. Danish artists: Vibe Bredahl, Malene Hartmann, Svend-Allan Sørensen, Gitte Bach and Knud Odde. Guests: Elina Länsman (FI), Anker Mortensen (FO) and Kent Iwemyr (S).
