GUIDED TOUR: One! More! Time!. Kim Richard Adler Mejdahl.
Most Danes know BonBon-Land for its sweets, where Seagull Poo, Big Boobs, Nappies, Earwax and Rotten Fish has stuck in the language like chewing gum under the shoe. Kim Richard Adler Mejdahl was among the nineties children for whom BonBon-Land became a land of happiness, a place where the darkness of life could not coexist with slides and the park’s bizarre mascots. Taking the artist’s personal relationship to BonBon-Land as a starting point, the exhibition delves into Danish working-class culture’s relationship to medieval monsters and Egyptian mythology. BonBon-Land’s bizarre mascots can now be experienced indoors and outdoors at Rønnebæksholm, as we jump on board Mejdahl’s artistic roller coaster ride — a moment in which we are lifted from our seats, feeling weightless and free.
The tour is free with paid admission to Rønnebæksholm. Children up to and including 18 years of age enter free.
Kim Richard Adler Mejdahl lives and works in Copenhagen. He is educated from Funen Art Academy and graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Art in 2019. Mejdahl has exhibited at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, O—Overgaden, and internationally at film festivals in e.g. Germany, France, Norway, Iceland and South Korea.
In 2018 he received the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition’s Solo Prize, and in 2020 he was awarded a place in Overgaden’s development program INTRO. In 2021 he received Elna & C.T. Hollesen grant. In 2022, he was awarded the Danish Arts Foundation’s two-year career program The Young Artistic Elite.
Under the alias Kim Kim, Mejdahl has released several albums and, among other things, played at the Roskilde Festival in 2022. Mejdahl’s work is represented in the National Gallery of Denmark’s collection.
