CHART Art Fair
Galerie Anhava, booth no 18, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen
29 Aug  – 31 Aug  2014

Galerie Anhava has the pleasure of presenting Heini Aho, Anne-Karin Furunes, Pe Lang and Mari Sunna at CHART | ART FAIR. CHART showcases contemporary art from the leading galleries in the Nordic region and features a collateral programme of talks, performances and special projects. The art fair takes place at the Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen 29th - 31st August 2014.

HEINI AHO (born 1979) is a young Finnish sculptor and video artist who is particularly interested in space, transparency, translucency, reflection and related visual effects along with balance, the lack of balance, and the emotions that these factors arouse. On display at CHART will be an installation by Aho consisting of spatial elements and “balancing” videos.

ANNE-KARIN FURUNES (born 1961) is one of Norway’s most widely known artists on the international scene. In recent years, her monochromatic perforated portraits have fascinated viewers in venues including the Museo Palazzo Fortuny in Venice, Millesgården in Stockholm and private galleries in Quebec, New York and Helsinki. In her works, visual charm combines with statements on behalf of oppressed, shunned and marginalized people. At CHART, Galerie Anhava will display a large painting from her Freedom Fighters series.

PE LANG (born 1974) is a Swiss artist working in Berlin. His works are mechanical-kinetic pieces addressing the visual and poetic possibilities of matter, physics and mathematics. The artist has recently displayed his moving pieces bordering on magic in Tokyo, Zürich, London, Berlin, Brussels, Paris, Basel, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and other cities. His works makes us wonder at what we see and are a reminder of how the world is full of surprising things that will mostly find an explanation.

MARI SUNNA (born 1972) is one of the most exciting painters in Finland. Her present works combine in strangely interesting ways the symbols of comic strips and traffic signs with the problems of abstract painting. In a way, she seems to be flirting with Pop art, and yet she is not. Her latest works may look “hard-edged”, but Sunna’s typical sensitive brushwork applied with the assurance of a sleepwalker is still there. The encounter of two colours in Sunna’s paintings is a joy for the viewer’s senses.
