Britta Egebjerg and Erika Szőke: The Unspoken Connection

"It is not uncommon that two photographers admire each other’s work. This often happens to us, even if our photographic approaches and styles differ. The intellectual and visual compatibility of two artists is far less common, but this is precisely what Britta Egebjerg and Erika Szőke discovered.

The two-person show invites both viewers and the photographers themselves to explore the resonances between their individual works, revealing some of what is unspoken but can be grasped through the intricate ways their images reflect on one another and on the common interest the two artists share in the human story".

Zsolt Bátori, artistic director, PH21 Gallery, Budapest

 

Egebjerg & Juhler: Når tillid overtager egoet

"Det er altid spændende at se hvorledes en bevægelse i tiden bliver fortolket og benyttet i praksis. En af de store bevægelser jeg ser som fremtidsforsker er, CoCreation. Der handler om at der kommer bedre ting ud af at samarbejde og involvere andre mennesker i at samskabe...

Lene og Britta arbejder med deres egen udgave af CoCreation og det er altid en fornøjelse at se og høre om, hvordan et nyt kunstværk kommer til live - specielt når det følger tidsånden."

Henrik Hovgaard, Fremtidsforsker

 

Når himlen vælter ind over land, bogudgivelse 2014

"Det første som slår én er de meget stramme kompositioner med en høj grad af æstetik og en sikker stil. Billederne er komponeret i et poetisk sprog og spiller på flere kanter - og rammer de lyse og mørke sider af sindet. Man stopper op og trækker luft ind".

Carsten Snejbjerg,  fotojournalist, dommer ved Årets Pressefoto 13/14 og freelancer for bla. Jyllands-Posten, Newsweek og Der Spiegel.
