The “CIRCUIT” exhibition is an encounter with a circular movement of varied orientations formed by Danish contemporary artists at the Street Art Museum in St. Petersburg and will be on display between 8 and 30 September 2017.
The artists are all part of the Danish art archive Artistoftheweek.dk, an inviting community where each artist gives rise to the next in a circulatory system—either encouraging the formation or taking parting turns in a circuit and continuum of a repeated path, collisions and rebirth.
The exhibition is an itinerary of continuous curves around an open center dealing with layers of inner realities, exploration of social landscapes, mythical governance and global intervention navigating possibilities of how art, the public and society can interact relationally.
The exhibition is initiated by the international platform Calculation Project is based on intersecting artistic contacts between different countries in the field of contemporary art and is devoted to iterative interactions of general artistic representational process, aimed at further development of cooperation, interdisciplinary connections and intercultural research.
The exhibition will be accompanied by an exhibition programme including site-specific performances, live-concerts, artist talks, screenings and much more.

Rhythmic Osmosis is an exchange among stranger bodies: seven contemporary dancers/movers will be collaborating with seven artists working with performance. Exchange of ideas, practice and examination of the peculiarities and seemingly fine lines in between disciplines will be explored intensively by two bodies paired to create a piece of work together or in conjunction with the other. All forms of conversations, give-and–take dynamics amongst these bodies may result in fluid fusions, discrepancies or even confusions – exciting variation of discoveries and possibilities that the project is strongly hoping to achieve.
The outcome of these exchanges will be two live events open for the public not only to see but also to contemplate on and possibly interact with. The first session will be in the Limehouse Town Hall and the second session will take place at the Royal College of Art.

In the sky when on the floor
Being in limbo can feel right or wrong, bad or good or neither nor. It can oscillate between a winged feeling of something incomplete, a state of restlessness where things are still negotiable or a condition of stagnation where everything seems gridlocked and frustrating, shifting from one thought to another. In this status vulnerability can be disclosed, but also a critical power can be unfolded to change command structures. Look at things from above or from below offer different perspectives, like observing it from the inside or the outside or the past or the present. In this group exhibition the artistic works show a state of transition, a state of ambiguity and in-betweenness often processing some difficult times, which are related to issues of adolescence, identity, territories, gender, god, anger and intimacy.
The exhibition is curated by Iliane Kiefer and Rado Istok.

Wiolators: Reykjavík Edition
The Wiolators is an artist collective of eleven international artists. Formed in 2011 in Amsterdam, the Wiolators have since spread over Europe and now annually get together, each time in a new location to make an exhibition dedicated to the site. Last summer The Blackpool Edition, was set in the infamous English seaside town Blackpool which inspired works about fortunetellers, aerobics, melons and birdsongs. This year the Wiolators take on Reykjavík and Kunstschlager Stofa. Working by proxy the three Wiolators on site in Reykjavik have spent the week executing directions received from the absent members creating from afar and on site a show that is remotely site specific.
