until 12.05. | #1924ARTatBerlin | Grimmuseum shows from 7. April 2018 the exhibition “THINK OF ME AS A CAROL” of the artist Peter Voss-Knude.

The exhibition Think of me as a Carol is a continuation of Peter Voss-Knude’s longstanding musical engagement with the Danish defence, and the outcome of his residency at the Grimmuseum.

The show takes its title from the lyrics of a song that Voss-Knude wrote with army captain Ekelund about the ambivalent role of the soldier as both arbiter of war and self-proclaimed “choir of peace”.

The video of Ekelund’s heart-wrenching studio performance accompanied by Voss-Knude’s immense charcoal drawings is a consideration of their relationship – one between ‘faggot’ and soldier, artist and muse – and its translation into cultural artefacts.

The exhibition is supported by Danish Arts Foundation.

Peter Voss-Knude (*1987, Copenhagen DK) lives and works in Berlin and Copenhagen. He studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths University London. He has performed and exhibited at Last Tango, Zürich together with Fiona Banner (2017); the National Gallery of Denmark (2017), Overgaden Institute for Contemporary Art, Copenhagen (2017), Code Art Fair (2017); Royal Arsenal Museum of Denmark (2016) and Counter Space, Zürich (2015), amongst others. As Peter & the Danish Defence, he has written two pop music albums in collaboration with the Danish Armed Forces available on Spotify and iTunes.

Vernissage: Friday, 06th April 2018, 06:00 p.m.

Exhibition period: Saturday, 07th April – Saturday, 12th Mai 2018
