For the group exhibition Feelings of my Thatched Hut, six artists have been invited to present new works of painting, installation, sculpture and performance in the Grimmuseum. The creation of the works shown in the exhibition has been characterised by an independence from any binding set theme, allowing the invited artists the space for unpredictable outcomes, spontaneous decisions, coincidence, and an unfettered personal journey.

Since the works are not subordinated to a set theme, they remain independent entities – yet a passionate search for different forms of intensity creates fields of tension: subtle and vigorous, real and imaginary, immediate and enigmatic, dedicated and self-mocking. The works are rooted in this world from which they create parallel counter-worlds, whose interrelations are by no means definite, but instable and fragile, and thus provoke a vivid exploration.

Similarly, the exhibition is seeking a setting in which the works can be perceived as self-contained wholes while interrelating as dynamic beings. Driven by this inquiry, Feelings of my Thatched Hut is conceived as both an exhibition and a stage juxtaposed by the divided spatiality of Grimmuseum. Each Saturday the stage will be occupied and activated by the artists and their guests during the Saturday Sessions. The sessions set the tone, generate a rhythm and invite guests to come back to the exhibition time and time again. During opening hours the empty stage serves as a convivial gap, a space to dwell.
