Aukje’s approach to her curatorial practice often stems from an interest to identify and examine various natural, historical and cultural phenomena that are not fully apparent, visible or communicated outside their own time and domain, but has the potential to enrich our contemporary understanding of our global world. For her residency at RU Aukje will be preparing a solo-show by Danish artist Tove Storch to be presented in New York in 2014.
Lepoutre Ravn’s 1 month residency (May 2013) is supported by Grosserer L. F. Foghts Fond (www.foghtsfond.dk) .
