Gl Holtegaard presents Randi & Katrine The Clam Box – Come back to pleasure

Gl Holtegaard presents Randi & Katrine The Clam Box – Come back to pleasure open 18 January–17 March 2013.

The Danish artist duo Randi & Katrine will be featured at the art gallery Gl Holtegaard with their exhibition The Clam Box – Come back to pleasure. Among other things, the two artists have created a mammoth version of a take-away box with clams, and are going to turn the old baroque villa of Gl Holtegaard into an impressive scenography in which the public can also take part. In the project room, make sure not to miss the highly praised film The big scene by the Swedish film talent Tova Mozard, which pushes reality’s domestic drama to its extreme in the form of a play.

Since qualifying from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2005, the artist duo Randi & Katrine (Randi Jørgensen, b. 1974 and Katrine Malinovsky, b. 1976) have created a whole series of remarkable installations and sculptures. Their works have childhood motifs and narratives as their point of departure, and they often take the form of entire scenographies that include the public in the narrative.

With The Clam Box, Randi & Katrine link together the everyday and the special, the past and the present in a poetic narrative with the clam as its focal point. The clam is very much an icon of the rococo period and the pictorial world of the 18th century that also gave rise to the country house of Gl Holtegaard. As an image of the feminine and mysterious, the clam has now been updated to present-day everyday culture by the artists in the form of a take-away box of mammoth proportions, lined with thousands of clam shells.
