Mira Winding (B. 1992) is the first exhibiting artist from 1. January to 31. January 2021. Then, in February Maiken Stæhr will be the next artist to exhibit followed by Sophie Nys (BE) in March.
The concept is developed by artist Pernille Kapper Williams and Artistic Director Jacob Fabricius. Kunsthal Aarhus BBC meets the demand of growing interest from visitors in the capital region and the Danish Press – who for one reason or the other can not visit Kunsthal Aarhus on a daily, monthly or yearly basis.

Sophie Nys (b. 1974, BE) uses sculpture, photography, installation art, video and text in her subtly humorous, whimsical explorations of philosophical, historical, political and artistic issues. In her practice, Nys investigates how sculptural objects, shapes and elements from everyday life can blend into their surroundings, thereby challenging these surroundings and asking them questions while at the same time remaining utterly present in the here and now. Sophie Nys develops her own idiosyncratic rules (for example by playing around with words, titles and forms) for what a work of art is, how it is defined and presented. By applying refreshing, humorous and poetic twists, Nys creates her own space and her own methods defining how we perceive a work of art, an object and a space.
For Kunsthal Aarhus BBC, Nys has created a multiple: 300 editions of a do-it-yourself work that visitors can take home with them. Nys has long been interested in black voids, blackness, and the visible invisible in works of art history such as Gustave Courbet's L'Origine du monde The Origin of the World. With this work, Nys will combine this interest with questioning the qualities and potentials of painting. At Kunsthal Aarhus BBC, visitors will be able to take home a piece of canvas which Nys has painted black on one side. By following the accompanying instructions, you can to tie the canvas into a knot, giving it a butterfly-like character, and create and intimate and inaccesible spot within the knot.
Voila! In this way, Kunsthal Aarhus BBC visitors can bring home a bit of obscure Sophie Nys blackness.
