Tonight We Won’t Be Bored is the name of this retrospective exhibition from V1 Gallery, and never has a collection been so aptly named; by my count there are 56 artists contributing to this show, most of whose names I can’t spell on a Monday morning as the majority are Danish – like the gallery itself, located in Copenhagen.
V1 is marking its 10-year anniversary since rising to life in a defunct bakery, and as might be expected from such a long lifespan, the work on show is extremely diverse. The selected artists revisiting the gallery are a cross section of the 300 that have graced the walls and spaces since 2002, from the cartoonish pop-art, through (slightly) more traditional painting styles to sculpture installations.
At times whimsical and colourful, at others bold and stark, the work is seemingly scattered and leads the eye here, there and everywhere with a ceaseless variety that ensures the viewer is never in danger of yawning. Holding the attention on Flaesketorvet 69 until 12th January, 2013.
