cph flip book nest is a non profit traveling gallery for flip books made by Nordic artists who works with drawing. The gallery had its first exhibition in January 2018 in Copenhagen and is initiated and run by artist Christina Bredahl Duelund. The second exhibition took place at Malmö Konsthall, in Malmö, Sweden as part of the MABB and showed work from Malene Hartmann, Bue Bredsdorff, Dagmar Radmacher, Stine Gonsholt, Tore Magne, Anna Brag, Vibe Bredahl, Thomas Holmbäck, Anette Jensen, Cecilia Westerberg, Hanne G Grønlund, Gitte Bach, Mette Høyen Andersen, Maria Hornshøj, Lena Ignestam and Christina Bredahl Duelund. The latest exhibition took place in Norway, Bergen Kunsthall at the BABF and we welcomed two new artists Bjargey Olafsdottir and Dres Simon to the nest.
A flipbook is a series of drawings that gradually varies from side to side, simulating a movement like an animation. The book can either be executed as a unique piece of artwork or can be printed as limited editions.
For every new exhibition more artists will participate in chp flip book nest and take on a new common working title to develop their work from but you will also find flipbooks from the previous exhibitions. In Copenhagen the title was “mirroring and reflections, similarities and inequalities, public and private”, at Malmö Konsthall the theme was “Future scenarios”.
The gallery travels around and act as an alternative platform for artistic dialogue through the drawn lines and it will show up anywhere it is welcomed.
