The artists participating in Close Up are: GTT/Günther Auer (Austria), Margi Geerlinks (The Netherlands), Raija Jokinen (Finland), Line Kramhøft (Denmark), Anka Landtau (Germany), Tomasz Paczewski (Poland), Dorte Persson (Denmark), Po Shu Wang and Louise Bertelsen (Hong Kong, USA, Denmark) and Wim Delvoye (Belgium).
These young artists work in different fields, thus the Art Centre will be presenting an exhibition including dance, performance, photo, painting, textile, sculpture, installation, and video, giving a broad picture of today's practice in these fields.
