Future Preservation will host a live artist talk/podcast recording at Østerbro Library on the 15th of August from 7-9 pm with author, playwright and visual artist Tomas Lagerland Lundme, photographer Fryd Frydendahl and draftsman and visual artist Halfdan Pisket.
The starting point of the conversation is Tomas Lagermand Lundme's upcoming novel En rigtig kærlighed, which will be published on the 13th of August by Politikens Forlag. A hate crime committed against the artist 10 years ago is a turning point in the book and also the theme of Tomas Lagermand Lundme’s exhibition Kærlig hilsen hadet at Vennepunkt on show until the 7th of September.
All three artists work with books as a significant part of their practice and at the library, the conversation will center on their publications and the themes these portray. The conversation will be about the personal references in their art, how and why they as artists use their own narratives in their artistic work and about the similarities and differences between all three.
Tomas Lagermand Lundme’s authorship and art centers around personal experiences and his writing are the foundation for all his output regardless of media.
Fryd Frydendahl spent 10 years creating the intimate and touching portrait of her family in the photo book Nephews published in 2017. It is a project that came into life from a family tragedy they all suffered. She recently published Solhverv, an audio and visual release with musician Lars Greve that is a sensuous portrait of West Jutland, where the two childhood friends grew up.
Halfdan Pisket published Dansker-triologien in 2017, which originally was in three volumes from 2014-16, drawn in comic book formats. The trilogy is about the brutal life story of his Armenian-Turkish-Danish father, poetically portrayed in a black and white hand-drawn universe.
The talk will be in Danish.
