Galleri CC x Detroit
12-14/5 2017

Tunnelsyn (Tunnelvision) is a collaborative project of Benjamin Andersson, Arngrímur Borgþórsson, Maja Gade Christensen, Andreas Knag-Danielsen, Madelaine Sillfors, Linus Svensson, Sofia Wickman. Together they run Galleri CC, an artist run exhibition space in Malmö. The title of the exhibition comes from the idea of bringing together different artists who work in different ways and cover a wide variety of subjects and ideas. Each individual has their own area of interest, chosen subjects to view and explore. It can be said that in a way, all of them have tunnel vision, as they remain focused on their own ideas and subjects. The term tunnel vision is usually a term burdened by negative connotations, but it does not have to be. Many eyes next to each other, ignoring what they consider to be the periphery may, in fact, cover a wider area. Much like periscopes at sea or telescopes aimed at the skies, they come together and broaden their field of vision.

Benjamin Andersson (SE) build scenarios in which the evident and the hidden is forced to coexist. Arngrímur Borgþórsson (IS) focuses on the complex systems of interactions between humans and technology. Maja Gade Christensen (DK) work systematic with patterns emergence and with decay. Andreas Knag-Danielsen (NO) deals with the interrelation between the human body and technology. Madelaine Sillfors (SE) investigates the sense of scale and understanding of the spatial and the haptic. Linus Svensson (SE) works with the process of investigating time and the working method itself. Sofia Wickman (SE) deals with people and places, memory and time and the contradictory nature of mankind.

Galleri CC is a non-commercial, artist-run gallery located in Malmö, Sweden. The group running the gallery take on the role of curators, embody and partake in exhibition concepts in collaborations with artists invited by the gallery. The exhibition “Tunnelsyn” will be their second exhibition of coming together and work, not as curators but as artists. The exhibition will consist of artworks which will both clash and share a common thread.

Galleri CC was founded in 2003 and is located in the residential neighbourhood of East Sorgenfri, Malmö. Since its inception the gallery has hosted more than one hundred exhibitions, performances and events with artists from all over the world.

Galleri CC has participated in Supermarket Art Fair in Stockholm, Art Swap Europe in Berlin, and Alt_Cph Art Fair in Copenhagen and collaborated with Galleria Rajatila Tampere (FI), WIZARD Gallery in Oslo (NO), OK Corral in Copenhagen (DK) and HilbertRaum in Berlin (DE).

Andreas Knag-Danielsen
Fitspiration (2017)

"Fitspiration" is a ongoing research project where I collect slogans connected to the workout environment. The slogans are found with smartphone apps, such as Instagram and at various websites. During the performance I read out the collected material using a megaphone while wearing workout clothing and white contact lenses embodying the role of a PT (personal trainer). The performance ends when there is no material left to read.

"Sore? Tired? Out of breath? Sweaty? Good… It's working."
"Wake up with determination. Go to bed with satisfaction."
"Suck it up. And someday you won't have to suck it in."
"Sweat is fat crying."
