Taking a side trip from the current show theme and looking again at the Artist Run space from last month, it’s time to mention the project TEKSAS in Denmark, co-directed by artists Peter Holm and Karin Lind. While visiting Copenhagen in May for the Artist Run Festival I took a trip north to meet Peter for research and was lucky enough to be welcomed in to their beautiful home which also houses their artist run space TEKSAS.
It is attached to their home, along with multiple studio’s and open living spaces, and as an extension to the gallery they even have a wall painting project that is installed in the paddock nearby. I think heaven on earth is in this place. In between working on their own practices they invite specific artists to show in the gallery who’s work they feel have significantly contributed to the history of art, specific to its genre. Check it out.
