Unknown Craftsmen: Denmark - 'Mingei-sota'

1 MARCH – 2 APRIL LABORATORY ARCHIVE
Anne Fabricius Møller & Ann Linnemann DK
Interdisciplinary experimental collaboration project of new materials and techniques from the drilling in cast concrete, glaze and clay during a studio residency at the Danish National Workshops of Art in 2015. The exhibition is a presentation of the project showing the work process' laboratory character with tests, works in progress and conclusions. Textile and ceramics meet in new textures - unconcrete thoughts and the concrete..
7 APRIL – 7 MAY OBJECT - SUBJECT
Charlotte Thorup DK
Module upon module leads to a new form where small entireties becomes one large whole. Pattern and repetition, dimension and context from nature as well as the city - a field with grain pattern or a building where the attention is caught. Porcelain holds in the material a fine duality between strength and fragility. Simplicity rules in the piece's own light and shadow effects that create 'the colour'.
12 MAY – 11 JUNE BARBRO ÅBERG
The pieces are created from microscopic fossils expressing a fusion of nature and culture as inspiration - pattern and organic structures combine thoughts of time, memories of life with reference to human culture. Other objects relate to the theme 'Eggs or Stones', sculptures and objects. Even when the bowl and vase sneaks in - it is still in the form of archetypal sculptural 'unique pieces'.
16 JUNE – 13 AUGUST HORIZONTAL – VERTICAL
Danish/International (Closed in July)
Guest artists Eva Brandt, Vibeke B. Krog and Better Lübbert are invited to exhibit unique vessels, vases, jars along with selected works by Danish and international exhibitors represented in the collection of the Gallery.

18 AUGUST – 17 SEPTEMBER GEOMETRIY OF MATERIAL
Heidi Hentze DK
From material research and cylinders to very simple and extremely sophisticated folds of graphic structures, analysis of compartmental constructions, collocated fixtures and the colour's influence of shape geometry.
Of professional knowledge, doubts and curiosity she seeks towards a philosophical ethical sense in the work.
22 SEPTEMBER – 22 OCTOBER NORDIC NUANCES
Gunhild Rudjord DK & Nina Malterud Norway
The Nordic artists are invited for this exhibition in references to Scandinavian colours and nature. The emphasis is on creating interaction and counteraction between the artists' works, Nordic expressions and uniqueness in decoration and colour delight of image and abstract pattern on ceramic form.

27 OCTOBER – 26 NOVEMBER SLEIGHT OF HAND: TRICK OF THE EYE..
Peder Rasmussen & Michael Geertsen DK
Stephen Bowers AU, Kurt Weiser, Richard Shaw USA..
Contemporary Danish ceramic artists along with International guests explore aspects of visual illusion, Visions of the Mind.
This exhibition on the ceramic art of illusion features Leger-de-main pieces with the emphasis on deceiving and delighting the eye.
While remaining faithful to the ceramic medium and its manipulation, the artists play with ideas of deception and illusion. Things are not quite as they may seem. Expectations are subverted and humorously played with.
The French term, Leger-de-main, is another name for sleight of hand, a cunning deception or any artful trickery.
