press release

Around 30 artists show artworks that all touch upon and tangle notions of desire, lust and the sexy. The title LYST is taken from the Austrian writer Elfriede Jelinek's novel from 1989.

The exhibition doesn’t pay much attention to the artwork as such and may contain xeroxes, texts, zines etc. alongside works on paper, photography, video and performance. A number of events, film screenings, actions, tea parties and discussions will take place during the exhibition period. The exhibition is curated by Tomas Lagermand Lundme and Mathias Kryger and will run during the World Outgames, which are held in Copenhagen. The ambition is to make a lustful, ready to burst bubble of serious and high in quality contemporary art. During the exhibition period Overgaden will extend it's opening hours.
