You see it already from the outside: a big bird with wings of two leopards and two naked women linked together in golden chains. Two murals - walls decorated with street art. No wonder the name of the art gallery is VÆG, which means ‘wall’ in Danish.
Since the summer of 2012, this space has been housing contemporary art. At VÆG, you will find primarily art of up-and-coming artists.
Lars Bonde is the man behind the gallery. Being an artist himself, he knows what it takes: ”Of course art entails a lot of subjective preferences - about emotions and gut feelings. But for me it is very important that I can sense the craftsmanship, creativity and passion in the work.”
At VÆG you will find a variety of media and aesthetic expressions in different contexts. Paintings, photographies, ceramics, drawings, textile- and light sculptures etc. There is a new exhibition almost every month. And if you are lucky, Lars might take you to the building in the backyard with a lot of treasures.
For Lars it is very important to emphasize that VÆG is an open and unpretentious space. ”People are often afraid of entering a gallery. Perhaps it is very expensive, perhaps I don’t understand the art, perhaps there is a entrance fee?” Don’t hesitate - you are very welcome to come and take a look at VÆG.
When visiting VÆG it is almost impossible not to be inspired - and perhaps you begin to question the art you have at home. Maybe your walls need a new look? A touch of creativity or a original statement to challenge and embrace your home and everyday life?
VÆG is a gallery that exposes art in an aesthetic way. Almost like Guggenheim, right?
