In Order To Keep Fresh Cool dry place in FAA
It’s the time of the year when Det Fynske Kunstakademi (Funen Art Academy) presents its new students, and this time is extra special. The academy moved to a new home and so has the Project Room. This room is a place where students can experiment and show their artworks and projects. Now, 14 artists - four of them exchange students - have decided on the title “In Order To Keep Fresh; Store In a Cool, Dry Place & Consume Within 7 Days After Opening” for their first exhibition.
The FAA project room always offers a diversity of opinions, art mediums, and personal experiences. Personally, I think the FAA room is the only place in Odense for experimenting with the visual arts. In its former location, previous performances included sounds, videos, installations, the serving of food, giving of tattoos and listening to each other’s hearts beating. I’m looking forward to see what the new students will offer this year. I’m also looking forward to seeing new faces from the city, not only participating in our vernissages but also joining in as critics and giving feedback, which is the only thing that the FAA room is missing.
