BM Suma Contemporary Art Center
“At The End of the Rainbow”
6th of September – 5th of October
Curated By Thomas Andersen and his never ending optimism in connection to the Istanbul Biennial 2007
This part of the project represents some of the most cutting edge artists from Denmark. Amongst others Peter Bonde, known for his rebellious approach to painting, combining paint with untraditional materials and catchy words resulting in an ironic play between language and painting as in his ‘piss paintings’ series;
Marco Evaristti, a provocateur, mostly oriented towards an interest in the excess and catashtrophy of the body, known for his goldfish in blenders, leaving it up to the public to press the button and blend the fish;
Thierry Geoffrey Colonel achieved great acknowledgement for his Emergency Room project at P.S. 1 in New York this year, where an artist from a pool of 50-60 American and international artists entered ER every day to showcase their artistic responses to the headlines of the previous 24 hours. In Istanbul he was represented by Copyflex (above in yellow T -Shirt) that held an Art Run through the streets of the city along with an istallation in BM Suma.

Above: Anders Brinch's Rainbow that was too big to carry up the stairways of BM Suma. Peter Bonde then came up with the idea to cut it in halft and stand it up against the Black Mirror that was in one of the rooms of BM Suma and the other half in the next room with Marco Evaristti's work.
Artists participating from Denmark: Peter Bonde, Jon Stahn, Anders Brinch, Thierry Geoffrey Colonel, Fie Norsker, Maria Wæhrens, Marco Evaristti, Ismar Cirkinagic, Rasmus Bjørn and Anna Odell
