B3IG3, in collaboration with artist and curator Sofia Wickman and the curatorial platform Gallery Extra presents Johan Lundin (SE) and Christopher Füllemann (CH) Drag and Drop at Radisson Collection Royal Hotel Copenhagen 8th of June 2019 19:00-22:00.


Lundin and Füllemann presents a site specific exhibition consisting of performance, VR technology and sculpture. Lundin has created an installation using drag, performance and VR technology where they take on an alter-ego to make transitions between the digital, fictional and physical world. Inside us, around us, among us we drag and drop. In the digital worlds we are all just a bunch of binary numbers creating a never ending mesh of imaginaries, looping our senses into future impossibilities. Lundin likes the idea of being able to reshape – making the real to be virtual and the virtual to be real. Füllemann presents a series of sculptures that challenges the domestic environment and emphasizes the experience of forms and materials as living organisms. During the time of the exhibition, a performance will investigate the idea of shared privacy and vulnerability. With explorations on the forms of intimacies as a fundamental approach to create a space for shared knowledge, the work examines the boundaries of the private/public, while it also highlights an economy of proximity that resists dominant structures and norms. Füllemann sees it as a liquid landscape to bring together emotions and experiences.

The event is led by B3IG3 which is a curatorial and performative platform created by Andreas Knag-Danielsen. B3IG3 always takes place at a hotel and the host(ess) are different characters created and performed by Knag-Danielsen, based on drag aesthetics, ideas of otherness and the meeting between the digital and physical world.

JOHAN LUNDIN (b. 1988, Lund, Sweden) is an artist producing performance, installation and video. The performativity and audience interactivity could be understood through relating to the notion of dance as going in to a role, taking on a mission or a character. An approach is communicated of a setting to always be understood through the character enacting the space, living it, putting life and character in to it, dancing in it. Stating that by the act of dancing one can choose to enhance a setting, see the setting as something else, relate to the setting in alternative ways or make the setting disappear completely. Johan is educated at Konstfack University College of Arts Crafts and Design (SE), Steneby School of Design and Crafts (SE), Bergen Academy of Art and Design (NO), Royal Institute of Art (SE), School of Dance and Circus (SE) and Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts (SE). johanlundin.com

GALLERY EXTRA is a curatorial platform for art with focus on performance. The project is run by a lot of alter ego characters mainly performed by Johan Lundin. The core in this way of working with art is mobility and communal power and the possibility of collaboration to create a stable but continuously changing production platform. galleryextra.com
