RANDI & KATRINE
The Clam Box - Come back to pleasure
This winter, the artist duo Randi & Katrine will be featured at Gl Holtegaard with their exhibition The Clam Box – Come back to pleasure. Among other things, the two artists have created a mammoth version of a take-away box with clams, and are going to turn Thurah’s old baroque villa into an impressive scenography in which the public can also take part.
Since qualifying from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2005, the artist duo Randi & Katrine (Randi Jørgensen, b. 1974 and Katrine Malinovsky, b. 1976) have created a whole series of remarkable installations and sculptures. Their works have childhood motifs and narratives as their point of departure, and they often take the form of entire scenographies that include the public in the narrative.
With The Clam Box, Randi & Katrine link together the everyday and the special, the past and the present in a poetic narrative with the clam as its focal point. The clam is very much an icon of the rococo period and the pictorial world of the 18th century that also gave rise to the country house of Gl Holtegaard. As an image of the feminine and mysterious, the clam has now been updated to present-day everyday culture by the artists in the form of a take-away box of mammoth proportions, lined with thousands of clam shells. In 2011, Randi & Katrine won the Danish Art Foundation competition for a public work of art with their decoration of the Ærø Ferry, which was launched in autumn 2012.
