Featuring the work of the Danish Collective, Koh-i-noor:
The work presented by the seven Copenhagen based artists of the Koh-i-noor collective is the third part in a series of international deadpan exchanges, which began last summer in Denmark and Berlin. In each of the shows, the artists were actively involved in a give-and-take of deadpan communication… a sort of classic comedy exchange. The work exhibited here at The Lab by the seven Danish artists is a reaction to the work of the Bay Area artists who initially exhibited in Copenhagen this past summer in Deadpan Exchange I.
While the Deadpan Exchange series serves as a means of exploring deadpan communication on an international scale, it also serves as a way to bring diverse groups of artists together from different places in the world and begin a dialog that might not otherwise take place outside of formal institutions.
A catalog of the entire exhibition series, with essays by David Robbins and Marie Kølbæk Iversen, will be available at The Lab.
