The Rehearsal Dinner

08.12 – 27.01.2007

The show, which adds a bittersweet sentiment to this years Christmas preparations, presents works by the group of artists, who founded the former Copenhagen exhibition venue Førstetilvenstre: Krista Rosenkilde, Birgitte Støvring, Camilla Thorup, Anne Torpe and Lars Tygesen. Chiming bells, falling snow, the decoration of the Hotel D’Angleterre and the many windows of the city, mother in her kitchen… Christmas is not in lack of traditionbound and pretty images of the good life.


As a celebration of the year that went by, the joys of family life and the impressive, national spending power, the month of December goes off like one long crescendo towards the final climax, Christmas Eve, where the bottles are opened, thousands of presents unwrapped and the whole of Denmark leans back, satiated from Christmas dinners and receipts that were lost.
