|Press release||Lauritz Kunsthal starts 2008 with a bang with the exhibition 'DREAM VISION - Young photographic art'. The exhibition presents works by 30 final year students from Fatamorgana, the Danish School of Art Photography, and gives an overall idea of the newest trends in fine art photography.
For almost twenty years Fatamorgana has been a cradle for talented, Danish and international photographers in Denmark. The school's philosophy is the 'honest picture', a personal photography based on an original attitude to and a poetic look at what is being seen. The young photographers from Fatamorgana work with a range of different genre within fine art photography and at DREAM VISION you can experience portraits, landscapes, documentary depictions of everyday life and experimental digital photography.
Fine art photography has traditionally been characterised by the division between so-called objective documentary photography and more subjective, staged photography. In the young fine art photography this classic distinction has been broken down in favour of a fundamentally personal interpretation of reality. The private and the public merge as one in the photographs exhibited, whose realism is characterised by the magic visions of dreams and fantasy.
In connection with 'DREAM VISION - Young photographic art', Lauritz Kunsthal is showing a programme of Finnish video art with the title 'Where there is pressure, there is folk dance'. The programme is shown in collaboration with FRAME - Finnish Fund for Art Exchange. We look forward to seeing you at Lauritz Kunsthal!
Lauritz Kunsthal holds 7 exhibitions annually of new Danish and international art. The exhibited works are for sale at fixed prices and occasionally at auction. The exhibitions at Lauritz Kunsthal are displayed both online on www.lauritz.com and in Lauritz Kunsthal's beautiful surroundings in Copenhagen.
