poster for "What's He Building in There?"  Exhibition

This event has ended.

“WHAT’S HE BUILDING IN THERE?” takes its title from Tom Waits song of the same name. The lyrics of the song circle the fear of the unknown, the mistrust of behavior we can’t understand and how suspicion leads to generalization. It is also a strange hymn to the man, hammering away in his shed, not taking time to greet his nosy neighbor because he is on a mission to create. A parable to the situation of the artist, working in the studio, creating things that might not please the general public. Both the song and the exhibition is an ode to the darker side of curiosity. What are they building in there? - Let us fulfill their worst fearful suspicions.

V1 Gallery was founded in 2002 by Jesper Elg and Peter Funch. In 2004 Mikkel Grønnebæk joined the gallery. The gallery represents a select group of emerging and established artists and is committed to introducing art with something at heart to an international audience. Seeing art as a profound and competent media for social and political engagement, the gallery has a desire to challenge both the viewers, the norms and itself and aspires to create a space with no limitations other than quality and nerve. The artists represented by V1 gallery work in a variety of media. V1 has shown at art fairs through out the world. In 2010 V1 Gallery received the FEAGA prize (Federation of European Art Galleries Association) at ARTBASEL 41 for Outstanding Creativity and Innovation.
