ALL ALL ALL
All all all presents Picnic at Flatlands by Erdal Bilici
May 5 -Juni 17 2023
Open: Thu-Fri 13-18
On display in Læderstræde 15
Bilici’s exhibition takes its starting point from the video work that has given name to the show. In Picnic at Flatlands we are on a poetic and explorative walk in and around Værløse Flyvestation, once an airbase that since has become a real estate developer wet dream, while some has been short-term rental workspace and some left abandoned. With two characters, one real and one 3D generated, Bilici walks us through these settings both the natural, domestic and hyper-real animated, quietly exploring while moving between them.
The video acts as a backdrop for the artist’s continuing investigation of the transaction between our mundane, monetary desires and our need to connect with something sanctuary, spiritual, natural. In fetishizing the idea of this ‘something’’ it becomes object – a place we bring the domestic into, controlling, regulating and eating on a blanket in it.
During his exhibition Bilici will expand the project through some events that lie between the public and the private, like a role playing night, inviting guests to join his investigation.
Picnic at Flatlands is supported by Augustinus Fonden, Knud Højgaards Fond and Beckett Fonden.
About All all all
All all all facilitates processual exhibition formats that challenge ideas of the finished art product, slow down artistic production and consumption, and activate different art practices of care.
The project is founded on the premise that our space and resources are shared and handed over again and again to a number of artists who in different ways translate and negotiate terms of care in their work. The artists are given an office/workshop/laboratory place in All all all that they can use freely. They each unfold their practice in a personal processual exhibition format that evolves during their residency and expands through cross aesthetic collaborations and events, dinners, performances and more.
