PIKISAARI BIENNAALI 2022

The Pikisaari Biennale is a site-specific art biennale that takes place every two years and brings contemporary art to the historic environment of Pikisaari island. In general, a biennial means an international contemporary art exhibition that repeats every other year. The oldest of these events is the Venice Biennale, which started in 1895. Today, more than 200 international biennales are organized worldwide, including the major biennales in Gwangju, Shanghai, São Paulo, Berlin, Istanbul, and Liverpool. But how small can a biennale be? The Pikisaari Biennale may be the world’s smallest biennale. Two artists have been invited to it: composer, performer and media artist Makiko Nishikaze from Berlin and visual artist Pernille Egeskov from Copenhagen, whose works the biennale presents as two consecutive entities. By being small, the Pikisaari Biennale challenges to think about the meaning and importance of small art events. First Pikisaari Biennale 2022 directs its gaze to the immediate surroundings with the theme “You are here”.

The title has a double meaning: it means “nest” as well as “to be prepared” as well as “comb once hair”.

 

 

MAN-MAID-NATURE a Nordic Tour
The works in this exhibition embrace the very nature of what is ’man-made’ by playfully repurposing existing materials, resources, even capturing the immaterial. Through diverse practices, they reflect on how materials can be re-appropriated, take on parallel existences, or be in dialogue with each other.

At Vendsyssel Art Museum you can now experience the artwork Jeg bor i Vendsyssel/ i Danmark/ i Europa/ i verden/ i universet (I live in Vendsyssel/ in Denmark/ in Europe / in the World/ in the Universe) an artwork about belonging – or not to belong –  to somewhere.
Belonging is a collection of `voices´ of local residents of the Vendsyssel area. For the work I asked 9 locals in the age between 10 – 88 years if one feels that one belongs, or not belongs to a given place? If one could loose the feeling? And what was needed if not feeling to belong? All interviews are transcribed in spoken language.
