The theme of the Exhibition "The NAKED human" presents 7 artists' visions of the human body from their personal interpretations and beliefs.
The human body has throughout history been portrayed in art from our many different global cultures and religions, from ancient china, india, americas to all world cultures.
In our western world roots from the ancient egyptian and greek art, like the Venus of Willendorf, to our Christianity beliefs of Jesus, though own scientific knowledge from the ancient greek, to the renaissance like Leonardo Da Vinci's studies of the human body, and to todays scientific and religious knowledge, the time changing keeps goes on.
Through the times the human nude has been admired, created lust, shame, indignation and horror. It has in some cases been sacred or an object, and our notions of what is beautiful and ugly, is often based on the human nudity. Especially today with Snapchat, Facebook and selfies, the nude human figure has accupied a central place in our global public space, and created many emotions, opinions and beliefs.
The exhibition "The Naked Human" presents artworks by 7 artists in video, paintings, drawings, sculptures and photographs, and shows the diversity of each artist's unique imagery, expression and perspective.
The artists are: Line Taarnberg with paintings, photos and video. Lotte Kjøller, Grethe Tranberg, Jeff Ibbo, Olav Johannisson with paintings and sculptures, and Esben Fog and Barry Pringle with Photography.
