CHARLOTTE FOGH CONTEMPORARY, ARHUS
Hesselholdt & Mejlvang
Disorder, Miniature scene, (detail of installation), 2009
Mixed media, 20 × 29 × 39 cm
Charlotte Fogh Contemporary has the great pleasure to present the Danish artists Sofie Hesselholdt and Vibeke Mejlvang at the Preview Berlin Art fair. The duo works in various medias such as sculpture, ceramics and installations, with works or exhibitions that often have an almost physically integrating effect on the viewer.
At Preview Berlin, Hesselholdt & Mejlvang have created a small village or a “neighborhood” of small tableaus of living rooms. The living rooms are reflecting filmic 3D- interior scenes with different narratives and psychological impressions, which take the temperature of the Western mental climate here and now.
Sofie Hesselholdt and Vibeke Mejlvang have worked together since 1999. They graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2006. Their works revolve around a committed and often critical addressing of the reality that surrounds us – socio-cultural, political and psychological issues as well as race and gender questions. But far from a dogmatic form it is a complex and elaborating investigation, where the artwork opens for dialogue with its environment. By imploding fragments from the visual culture of everyday life into new, revealing and often humorous constellations, Hesselholdt & Mejlvang comment on Western values.
