Meditations in an Emergency – Lærke Lauta
Opens immediately– 6 juni 2021
Rønnebæksholm is temporarily closed due to the recommendations from the Danish authorities in connection with COVID-19.
We look forward to opening the exhibition year 2021 with the renowned Danish artist Lærke Lauta, when Rønnebæksholm can open the solo exhibition Meditations in an Emergency. As the current COVID-19 restrictions have been extended, the exhibition will open as soon as possible thereafter, depending on the authorities’ announcement up to 23 March 2021.
But until then, it is possible, you can join Lærke Lauta’s exhibition with this beautiful film. The film is made by Danish Art Workshop, where Lauta had a three-month work residency in 2020. Here Lauta worked with the exhibition for Rønnebæksholm. The film provides an insight into the process from the work with the individual works to the creation of an entire exhibition.
Thanks to Lærke Lauta and Danish Art Workshops for being able to share this film (in Danish).
Kunsthal Rønnebæksholm’s exhibition program in 2021 will examine relations between fragility and imbalance in the earth, the body and society. The artistic program focuses on mental and physical vulnerability as well as involving overlooked voices and creating space for new forms of communities. The exhibition program for 2021 begins with a solo exhibition by Lærke Lauta, Meditations in an Emergency. Since graduating from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2001, Lærke Lauta has worked on the basis of visual narratives that describe moods and states in a more or less abstract form. With the painting and the film medium, Lauta’s works explore temporality and mental states. In the exhibition Meditations in an Emergency, we follow the extremes of Lærke Lauta’s practice and how those opposites provide space for reflection and dialogue.
Meditations in an Emergency spans the seven exhibition rooms at Rønnebæksholm. Here, Lærke Lauta’s practice moves from the figurative narrative painting over the abstract painting and video, to the meditative and more minimalist painting and video. Through the exhibition spaces, Lauta zooms in on the medium, and there is a gradual dissolution of each space, where the tempo is gradually reduced. From the figurative paintings that reflect situations and stories from our time to the abstract imagery with vibrant color surfaces, Lærke Lauta takes the viewer on a sensuous and meditative narrative.
Lærke Lauta b. 1974, is a trained visual artist from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Cooper Union in New York and Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Lærke Lauta has previously worked with video installation as well as sculpture and painting.
The exhibition is generouly supported by 15. juni fonden, Augustinus Fonden, Beckettfonden, Dansk Tennis Fond, Danish Arts Foundation and Danish Art Workshops.
