We proudly present a new female danish artist: Heidi P.
Heidi P is joining the new exhibition opening March 21st. 2014
A Surreal World – Darkness is always Lurking in the Shadow of the Sunny Side of Life
Heidi P’s crooked and spacey, naivistic universe bubbles with happiness, horror and humour. Animals, birds, trees and humanlike creatures run wild and are all having a party amidst nature. As a spectator, one can easily worry whether the work will suddenly start vibrating and subsequently come to life! Heidi P is quite imaginative and leaves her work open to suggestion. More often than not, she leaves us alone in the middle of the woods with fragments of one or more stories – and it is our job to make sense of this madness and find our way home.
Tumultuous, chaotic and yet meaningful. Life as we know it is turned inside out. We slide back and forth from reality to unknown and untrodden paths – between the brighter moments in life and the lowering shadows of darkness. Heidi P invites us all into a dualistic world, where the reverse of the coin is lurking right beneath the surface and the poetical swiftly changes into something raw and untamed. Where seriousness lies hidden in the humorous. In the universe of Heidi P – one has to stay alert and vigilant.
