Exhibitors for the Biennale 2021

24 projects have been selected for the up-coming Biennale exhibition and competition with a prize sum of 100.000 Danish Kroner. The jury is excited about a high level and great diversity.

Following an Open Call with the theme “Takeaway”, the jury has selected 24 projects created by a total of 26 makers. 

The selected projects relate to the theme TAKEAWAY and answer the question “what do you take with you through or from the corona crisis?” Some take it all with them; for who knows what one will need on the other hand. Others have had to scrap previously so well-functioning materials and practices to start over with what is available in the kitchen. And some have found old, stored materials, techniques and works and reinvented or even sprung them up and transformed them into new works that explore sustainability and professional traditions. In addition, new species and hybrid works have emerged and are ready to take on the new reality.

The jury is represented by Anni Nørskov Mørch, Trude Gomnæs Ugelstad, Love Jonssön, Marie Sparre-Petersen and Carl Emil Jacobsen.

About the Biennale

The Biennale has excisted since 1995 with changing locations, collaborators and exhibition themes. Not two Biennale have been the same, but common to all of them is an aim to provide a scene for the experimental and innovative, for new talents and established makers, for the communication and dialogue about contemporary crafts and design.  The theme for the 2021 Biennale is “Takeaway”, and in the selected Biennale projects it is reflected in both form and content. The Takeaway theme is treated widely and comes across different aspects.

We are looking forward to presenting the exhibitors at Koldinghus in Kolding from June 5th – October 24th 2021.
