Botanizing the Asphalt ft. Nanna Debois Buhl (#111)

Welcome back, and happy New Year to all! We have a great artist and incredibly sweet human on the show today; Nanna Debois Buhl. I have gotten to know her a bit over the last year or so and the more I hear about what she does, and how she does it, the more I fall in love with her work. It’s thoughtful, well-researched and also very...

We were introduced to him through a captivating artist run space out in Valby, (an outer neighborhood of CPH) called KVADRAT16, and we...

Vox Populi ft. Gillian Wearing (#109)

A couple of weeks ago the National Gallery of Art (SMK) here in Copenhagen unveiled a bronze sculpture in front of the museum by Gillian Wearing called A Real Danish Family. This is also in conjunction with an exhibition of her works, they are both well worth seeing. We were lucky enough to have the chance to sit down with Gillian to talk both about the sculpture she made about this danish family, and...

Take Your Time ft. Jean-Marc Bustamante (#108)

One of the great pleasures of making this show is having conversations with people who have some history behind them, people who have seen the ins and outs of the art world through many years, and to hear what is and is not important to them. The guest today is Jean Marc Bustamante, and he is a perfect example of the type of experienced artist and person we speak of. He of course has a long and storied art career, but he also has...

Unreality ft. Ulrik Heltoft (#95)

Today we fight back at the tyranny of reality together with Ulrik Heltoft. He is, in our opinion, one of the more interesting artists here in Denmark, and is also sneakily very influential here. He teaches, he makes art, and he produces the some of the wildest things you’ve never heard about. If you look at his work on a international level, you’ll start to see...

The Opposite Way ft. A Kassen (#91)

We are of course here to talk to A Kassen, the conceptual powerhouse of an artists group. I had the pleasure of talking to half the group, Tommy Petersen and Søren Petersen. I had a lot of questions for them, in the way I usually do, and I found that perhaps at the end of the day their works really speak for themselves. They have a really interesting practice, but in certain cases a...

The Fantastic Sieve ft. Ryan Gander (#64)

We are still playing catch up around the headquarters here, but today's guest, Ryan Gander, certainly isn't. The extremely prolific and hard working artist took the time to sit down with us and talk on the occasion of his opening at David Risley Gallery. We had a warmhearted talk about not being able to turn it off, about the distinction between...

Burn Hierarchy ft. Jes Brinch (#61)

Hi gang, get ready for this one. Jes Brinch, one of the great art warriors of our time, took the time to come on the show and the results were just what we needed. In a time of increasing monoculture in art (and perhaps life), it's a pleasure to speak with an artist like Jes, who is tirelessly fighting the good fight for a stranger, more fun and more chaotic art practice and world. He holds no punches, and accordingly gets away with...

Displacement ft. Runo Lagomarsino (#60)

Displacement is the title of the show today, and the Swedish artist Runo Lagomarsino is our distinguished guest. The name comes of course from our talk, and it relates to something dear to the heart, to home, and to something important in art. His story and family history are very interesting, and they are very much reflected in his...
