V1 GALLERY PROUDLY PRESENTS
WHILE WE AWAIT THE UPTURN
A SOLO EXHIBTION BY HUSKMITNAVN
RECEPTION: FRIDAY OCTOBER 22. TIME: 17.00 – 22.00
EXHIBITION PERIOD: OCTOBER 23. – NOVEMBER 20. 2010
On the occasion of the financial crisis, the real estate bubble, the art market crash, the high unemployment
rate, the economic cut backs and the general depression, V1 Gallery has been turned into a waiting room.
Visitors are invited to sit down and enjoy the art together while awaiting the upturn.
While We Await The Upturn is HuskMitNavn’s (RememberMyName) fourth solo exhibition with V1 Gallery. It
consists of 20 human figures in a waiting room hung with drawings, photo collages and paintings. The works
all interact with each other and create a large-scale installation.
During the last nine years HuskMitNavn has exhibited extensively in his native Denmark and abroad. He
works in a wide variety of contexts and media; in the public sphere, at galleries and in museums, on tee
shirts, newspapers, books and his latest ventures, art playgrounds and furniture. His distinct style and subtle
humor has made HuskMitNavn one of the most groundbreaking and treasured artists of his generation.
“Sort Arbejde” (Moonlighting) a new book by HuskMitNavn has just been published. Earlier this year in
Brussels, HuskMitNavn and Barry McGee created the joint exhibition “The Last Night” together.
We look forward to seeing you in the waiting room.
