Art Symposium in Egypt

Posted by Lotte Winther on

Dear all, It’s been a wild ride for the past couple of weeks - first starting off with a few days off in Stockholm and Uppsala, visiting an old friend and enjoying the chill, Swedish nature — and then in Egypt. Egypt was a wonderful adventure. In the late summer, I was selected to participate in the symposium, giving me a trip to Egypt with 7 fellow artists from Denmark and Egypt. The purpose with the program facilitated by DEDI (Danish-Egyptian Dialogue Initiative) is to create a dialogue and exchange between Egyptians and Danes. We started off in Cairo, got...

Wandering off

Posted by Lotte Winther on

A few years ago, one of my dear friends fell in love in Costa Rica - after meeting a traveling "tika" here in Denmark and wanted to go see her when she returned to her home.   Ever since, they have both told me hundreds of times I should come. And that, if I do come, I'll never leave. Since I'm nomadic anyway, and I can create wherever I am, why not give it a go? Let's prove them right or wrong - but mostly because I'm yearning to travel.   I've always traveled. My parents were great at it,...

Solo Exhibition: Så langt jeg strækker mig (As Far As I Stretch)

Posted by Lotte Winther on

The exhibition “Så langt jeg strækker mig” (meaning “As far as I stretch”) partly considers the meaning of the physical stretch of reaching something you’re fighting for, but also the challenges of stretching or compromising too much, caused by the pressure of others.  This exhibition works as a chronological visual process of my own work and healing in action after sexual abuse. The audience is confronted with illustrations, that resemble a female figure with an unmistakable powerful voice through actions and unbalanced figurative positions. It forces a negotiation between the classic modeling muse with the female anatomy — and a...

Feminine Linjer

Posted by Lotte Winther on

As you've all probably noticed (if not, I didn't do the job well enough!), I've co created an exhibition with my colleague and friend, Michelle Bødker Pedersen, who's the woman behind BÖDKER STUDIO (www.bodkerstudio.com).     The exhibition, Feminine Linjer (Feminine Lines) is an exploration of the feminine energy and how it is continued and told in branches of the visual art. With Michelle's craft and my visual art, we created a universe of paintings, knit installations and engaging circles that revolve together around and among the viewers with the continuation of subtle, feminine energy.   The process behind this...

Upcoming Exhibitions - See You There?

Posted by Lotte Winther on

Pheeew, the heat really hit us in Scandinavia the past few weeks. Honestly, it's been hard to work around it, as the sun lights up my studio as soon as the clock hits 2PM! I figured I'd implement the siesta in the middle of the day, and it's felt like being on a vacation in the afternoons - even though I never left Aarhus. The beach has been my escape, I simply loved it. Last week, I went with a friend, and we spontaneously snapped some shots of her in the water, inspiring me to do a series - maybe...
