Opening: Friday May 10th 6-9 pm

Galleri CC presents Nordic Open Call – out of 78 applications we have chosen four artistic practices. With Nordic Open Call it is our ambition to give an insight in the contemporary art scene by focusing on artist based in our neighbouring countries.

Underlying Resonance looks into phenomena invisible to the naked eye, but which remains always in our midst. Through movement and action an inner monologue becomes external. What was always present and unseen is elevated to a reality we can't evade. Deviations in predictable human behaviour and appearance are transformed into figurative compositions which illustrate the collision of inner conflicts. Birds teeming in an emergent air dance reminds us of our own vulnerability in a time without coexistence. The exhibition weaves together four different artistic practices. They intertwine and interact, creating a new context, sharing an underlying resonance.
