Off Stage

25 September – 12 December 2021

Staged portraits of famous Danes, seen through the camera lenses of six Danish art photographers. Many of the portraits are artists themselves, but here they are shown outside the scenes and spaces we usually know them from.

Off Stage partly shows how differently art photographers can approach a portrayal task, partly it gives new angles on the public visual and interpretive image of a number of well-known Danish actors, musicians, artists, writers and other famous people - for instance Michael Kvium, Rane Willerslev, Oh Land et al. - through staged portraits.
An earlier series, Interpretations, included 5 of the photographers' interpretations of the same 5 personalities. The current Off Stage series includes all of the photographers' interpretations of a further 12 personalities. In total, the exhibition consists of 80-85 portraits.
The six Danish art photographers are:
Jan Grarup (b. 1968)
Astrid Kruse Jensen (b. 1975)
Ole Christiansen (b. 1955)
Jens Juul (b. 1963)
Miriam Dalsgaard (b. 1972)
Tune Andersen (b. 1958)

Off Stage can be seen at KunstCentret Silkeborg Bad in the period 25 September - 12 December 2021.
