About this event

Warehouse9 has invited 8 fantastic artists who are each offering 5 individual one-hour support sessions in May - June. Sessions are informal and led by the artist seeking support. This is an opportunity to connect with another artist and talk about anything from new artistic ideas, to your artistic process, to challenges in navigating this world as an artist...etc.

Signe Vad is a visual artist and independent curator working within the self-organized. Material artistic practice based in photography, video and installation.

INTRODUCTION FROM SIGNE VAD

Signe Vad is initiator and part of the artist and intervention collaboration the Syndicate of Creatures (www.tsoc.zone)

Since 2005 Signe have artistically worked as an artist and curator based in the self-organized artist-run scene. In 2005 she opened her first exhibition platform Galleri Signe Vad, a non profit gallery in Copenhagen from 2005-2011, and from 2014-2015 she ran the exhibition platform TYS. From 2017-2019 she was the initiator of a group-based exhibition and venue platform KRÆ Syndikatet in the meatpacking district of Copenhagen. Which in 2019 transformed into the artistic intervention collaboration the Syndicate of Creatures.

In her material practice Vad works with the body, our skin, flesh and cells as the organic nature closest to us humans. The body becomes a tool to eclipse our classifications of gender, stereotypes and human norms. For Vad the body becomes a metaphor, a piece of flesh, a piece of nature, the artworks declare metaphorically that human and body, like other wild nature, cannot be classified into petrified concepts.

Her works often function on two plans a personal/bodily access to being-in-the-world and a comment on how we relate to- and create the common world. Her art practice is multidisciplinary and includes photography, video art, installations, web stream art projects and performance.

Vad have done several solo exhibitions and group shows from 2003 till now. Her work has been shown in Nordic countries, Europe and in the States. She works mainly with the media's photography, video and installation but has the recent years extended her practice to a variety of interdisciplinary art projects such as the live stream TV channel Serious TV (2014-15), Selde Seriøst Tv(www.selsdetv.dk) (2017-) and Office of Emergency(www.ooe.zone) (2020-).

From 2010 SV have been an active partner in Artist-Initiative Meetings, A European project for the artist-run scene (www.artistsinitiatives.com). And is part of a Creative Europe project Artist-Run Network Europe 2020-23.
