Media researchers set up an exhibition of novel interpretations of historical artworks

A research group of the Department of Media has been in collaboration with the gallery to set up an exhibition Mix it up! which is open 29-31 May.

National Gallery of Denmark (Statens Museum for Kunst, SMK) present a series of novel interpretations that build upon historical artworks in the collections of the National Gallery of Denmark. Admission is free.

The aim of the exhibition is to engage artists and designers to explore and experiment with artworks at the SMK. The collections span 700 years of art history, presenting works from Denmark, Europe, and the rest of the world.  Many of these collections are part of our shared cultural heritage and have been around for so long that their copyrights  have expired. Therefore, they can freely be re-used as raw materials in new artistic  projects.

In addition to the collaboration in organising the exhibition  two students from ARTS have works in the exhibition:

Kati Hyyppä (doctoral student at Media Department)
As light goes by - electromechanical machine

Neea Laakso (MA student at the Pori unit and Research assistant at the Media Department)
Free? - lase cut light-and-shadow piece

The work is part of the EU funded Europeana Creative Project

In a picture is the portrait of the sisters Bella and Hanna. The eldest daughters of M. L. Nathanson painted by C.W. Eckersberg’s (1783-1853) in 1820. The painting served as the main base for Neea Laakso’s empathetic light-and-shadow piece. For more information about the painting on the website of National Gallery of Denmark.
