Birds of a Petal

Exhibition 3 – 12th of December 2021

Birds Of A Petal
 is an exhibition by Roos Holleman (b.1989) about a tropical island daydream in which the flora and avifauna of the Hawaiian archipelago have merged together. Through soft pastel drawings and sculpture, we trespass upon the technicolor shores of an imagined yet unvisited Hawaii, it’s history and biodiversity so irreversibly shaped by other trespassers that we – the daydreamers – have staggered upon a world of colourful exaggeration and blissful misplacement. 

Roos Holleman’s works depict the natural world and the aesthetics of its collectable formability. Birds Of A Petal is her first solo exhibition in Eks-rummet and in Copenhagen. The exhibition consists of a new series of soft pastel drawings and sculpture, partly inspired by the pacific travels of James Cook and Georgia O’Keeffe.

A ‘tropical hotdog night’ celebrates the opening of Birds Of A Petal on 3 December from 17.00 to 20.00, in presence of the artist and accompanied by thematic drinks and snacks. 

The exhibition is open Saturday/ Sunday from 12.00 to 17.00, Thursday/ Friday from 14.00 to 17.00, or by appointment.
