Uffe Isolotto @ TOVES, Mar 6

6 March 2015

Weekends is bringing its third of three iterations of Uffe Isolotto‘s Dana Plato’s Cave at Copenhagen’s TOVES on March 6.

The graphic novel depicts the rise and demise of child star Dana Plato who, starting off as the innocent teenage daughter in Diff’rent Strokes, soon spins off into a world of drugs and sex that eventually takes her fame and then her life.

The iteration at TOVES will consist of a scenographic installation on view in an underground facility, created into a part nightclub, part cave and part disintegrating comic, based upon the visual material produced by former party girl Kristin Farrell.

See the Weekends website for details. **

8 January 2015

Copenhagen’s TOVES art space is opening a new group show titled Expressive Earth and running from January 9 to February 7.

Other artists include Iain BallKatja Novitskova, and Jaakko Pallasvuo, as well as Karen Gimle, Tarik Hindic, Anna Mikkola, Henrik Pask, and Amitai Romm.

In lieu of a press release, TOVES has released this abstract text:

A note came from Underground containing words applied with pressure by a Mankind, and thoughts having taken the form of an image, press out, making marks against the paths of the mind and the tilt of the earth. A note came from Surface of this hollow planet, impressing a crush on its own ground, leaving behind symbolic by-products for the reader of deep time.

See the exhibition FB page for details. **
