Martin O’Brien (UK)

Martin’s work considers existence with a severe chronic illness within our contemporary situation. Martin suffers from cystic fibrosis and his practice uses physical endurance, hardship and pain based practices to challenge common representations of illness and examine what it means to be born with a life threatening disease. His work is an act of resistance to illness, an attempt at claiming agency and a celebration of his body. Martin loves his body and his work is a form of sufferance in order to survive. Martin showed “Breathe for me” as part of Samtalekøkkenet at “It is about time” at Dansehallerne   http://www.martinobrienperformance.com/

Jeanette Ehlers (DK)

Jeannette Ehlers Jeannette Ehlers’ (b. 1973) works revolve around the Danish slave trade in colonial times as one of the main themes. The artist’s own ethnic background, with a Danish mother and a Father from Trinidad, W.I., adds this very important layer to the works. Through digitally manipulated photographs and video installations, she puts The Triangular Slave Trade under the microscope. A very experimental nature generally characterizes Jeannette’s work with digital image manipulation often included in the artist’s photographic and video based works. The artist has studied at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and graduated in 2006. http://www.jeannetteehlers.dk/
