POWERPLANT - ANTONIA LOW, STELLA GEPPERT, TINA MARIA NIELSEN
MAY 04 - JUNE 17 2018
'Power Plant' is a Danish-German exhibition project between Antonia Low (D), Stella Geppert (D) Tina Maria Nielsen (DK). Both physical and metaphorically, the artists' three projects will examine energy production and its various components as a potential for their own independent artistic production.
The title 'Power Plant' points to Kunsthal NORD's former function as a transformer station in a coal power station and the exhibition will also highlight historical and functional contexts as well as discuss local and global aspects of the industrial era.
Tina Maria Nielsen, Antonia Low and Stella Geppert use all of the sculptural practices, installations and objects in combination with various ready-mades. Common to the practice of the three artists is the utilization of the works' unique and contextual location specificity and due to the unique nature of the project which creates dialogue, the three artists will work closely together all spring 2018 at the National Workshops for Art and in Aalborg.
Antonia Low is educated from Goldsmiths in London and Kunstakademie für Freie Kunst in Münster (1996-2003). She was born and raised in Great Britain, but lives and works in Berlin. Has exhibited across most of the world and has among other things had solo shows at Eigen + Art Lab, Berlin - Ginkgo Space, Beijing - Palazza Altemps, Rome - K21, Düsseldorf - Art Museum Bonn - Kunstverein Braunschweig - Seven Sites Project Manchester.

INFO: Kunsthal NORD manages Northern Jutland’s Artists-Studio, which includes an atelier at Skydebanevej 9 and at level 5 in Nordkraft. The facilities are for active, performing visual artists who have strong ambitions for an artistic career and who actively wish to improve their artistic development.
The purpose is to support local visual art production and create an environment for mutual inspiration between visual artists in North Jutland. There is no teaching in the workshop, but there are occasional seminars and workshops on topics and techniques of common interest.
Kunsthal NORD is a platform for contemporary art and shows most current exhibitions with some of the country's most recognized and professional visual artists. With the exhibition FROM LEVEL 5 TO 3, we curiously turn to the local art scene to offer more untested talent experience and new inspiration.
The exhibition is supported by the City of Aalborg and KulturKANten.
