How does an Italian artist represent Denmark and how does a Danish artist represent Italy?
For this exhibition of exchange, the Italian artist Paolo Cavinato took inspiration from different places in Copenhagen, both from the centre and the peripheral areas of the city.

Likewise the Danish artist Anne Skole Overgaard, living in Copenhagen, was inspired by the countryside near Mantova, the hometown of Paolo Cavinato.

The exhibition consists of a series of works created during the residency in the other artist's hometown. The artists' experiences of being Elsewhere have been developed into sculpture and installation, graphic prints and painting.

Anne Skole Overgaard fixes the flat agricultural landscape of the Po Valley in drypoint engravings, focusing on each detail, each single brick or straw, recalling the sketchbooks of the Danish Golden Age painters, travelling through Italy in the 19th century.

Paolo Cavinato: Hidden Steps, 2016

Wood and acrylics, 80 x 69 x 180h cm

Abstracting architectonic elements from houses and urban spaces into spatial objects, Paolo Cavinato is working with central concepts of Italian art as perspective, the ideal city and the relation between the finite and the infinite. His works explore the two-dimensional and three-dimensional and the static and dynamic perception of space.
