Featured artists

Asger Harbou Gjerdevik

Asger Harbou Gjerdevik (b. 1986, Denmark) graduated with an MFA in Painting from Royal College of Art, London and BA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London. Gjerdevik works with various media such as painting, sculpture, collage, and drawing. His works are created in a process that involves continuous additions of materials, interposed references, transformations and overlays. Often the results are both complex and boundless pictorial spaces or structures, with potential for perpetual change.

Gjerdevik has exhibited with solo shows at Alice Folker Gallery, Copenhagen (2023 and 2020); CCA, Andratx (2021); Politikens Forhal, Copenhagen (2021) and Kunstforeningen Gl. Strand, Copenhagen (2019).

Gjerdevik has created public commissions to the Western High Court (2021) and the Eastern High Court (2022) in Denmark. His works can be found in several public collections, including the City Council of Copenhagen, Politikens Hus, and the court in Lyngby.

Maria Zahle (b. 1979, Denmark) received her Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art from the Royal Academy Schools, London and BA in Fine Art from Slade School of Fine Art, London. Zahle works with sculpture, textile, collage, performance, and poetry. Her practice is interdisciplinary and characterised by an insistence on the body and the process of making as unavoidable prerequisites of her works. In recent years, sculptural weaving and plant dyeing have become central to her practice.
