THE EXHIBITION IS CURATED BY HENRIETTE NOERMARK IN COLLABORATION WITH FREDERICIA FURNITURE AND ARK JOURNAL
“When I think of art I think of beauty. Beauty is the mystery of life. It is not in the eye it is in the mind. In our minds there is awareness of perfection.” Agnes Martin
‘In Dialogue’ is a group exhibition exploring the heritage and legacy of Fredericia Furniture’s classic Danish designs. A selection of Danish and international artists and designers engage in conversation across rooms and surfaces, disciplines and generations, materials and perspective. Sculptural, organic shapes and an emphasis on materiality and structure are pervasive elements in the exhibited works, furthering the scope and scale of this dialogue. The works share the notion of quality, craftsmanship and the aim to create and nourish a sensuous bond between object and viewer, a sentiment which is also distinct in the Fredericia Furniture brand.
To further quote Canadian-born American abstract painter Agnes Martin, she once said that “the measure of your life is the amount of beauty and happiness of which you are aware”, thus inviting us to be attentive to the detail in every aspect of life. With that, Natalie Weinberger, Maria Bruun & Anne Dorthe Vester, Kasper Kjeldgaard, Anne Brandhøj, Ole Vesterlund, Camilla Monsrud, Valerie Collart, Camilla Skov and Cathrine Raben Davidsen, some of the participating artists of the exhibition, ask the question: Can objects change the way we view our surroundings and the furniture we choose to live with?
