I thought you might like to see Chicken or Beef curated by Jesper Elg
maybe our best show at the gallery so far, and not my doing! having to get used to that is funny
I have known Jesper for years and years and is probably the only person I could let do something like this
he opened V1 with Peter Funch (click!) and added Mikkel and made V1 the best “young” “edgy” oh jeez gallery in Denmark the past decade (click!)
they were, for example, one of the first galleries to show Banksy (click!)
which I have learned not to hold against him!
and also showed Matthew Stone way before I did (still click!)
This exhibition is half European half American painters many of whom were new to me
not Misaki tho!

They have shown Todd James forever
who just sold out his show at Lazarides in London this week too! (click!)

Jesper called this “the birth of figuration” which haha i am still trying to parse
