CARVALHO PARK presents the first exhibition of Copenhagen-based artists Kristian Touborg and Tove Storch in the United States. Swiftly ascendent in the Danish contemporary art sphere, Touborg and Storch are here introduced with new, notable works of painting and sculpture for their New York debut.

The act of construction is one that relies largely on the ability to balance between acting forces and effects. While the constructed quality of language is often emphasized through the lens of fluency, to frame ideas of communication in terms of architectural process and industrial sensibility is much less common. Danish artists Tove Storch and Kristian Touborg have each developed signature aesthetic vocabularies that foreground ideas of artificial construction. Their respective sculptural and painting practices balance between moments of tension and collapse, and a sense of immutable structural support against the mechanics of fluidity. For this exhibition, Storch and Touborg found a shared rhythm that introduces us to suspended movements, surface tensions, and illusions of forcing nature in certain directions. Through spatial strategies that elicit emotional engagement, both Storch and Touborg use textiles to communicate newly poetic ways of understanding this relationship.

Tove Storch (b. 1981) is a Copenhagen-based sculptor whose artistic project can be viewed as a continuous investigation of material possibilities. Her works challenges the viewer’s perception of space and reality and ask questions to what sculpture is and what it is able to do. In a combination of a tight minimal expression and delicate, fragile materials her works give physical shape to complex reflections on form, time and space.

Storch received her MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2007 with exchange placements at Akademi der Bildende Künst (Vienna, AT) from 2003-2004 and Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee (Berlin, DE) from 2005-2006. Her work is included in the permanent collections of Louisiana (Humlebæk, DK), S.M.A.K (Ghent, BE) The Phillips Collection (Washington, USA), Malmö Museum of Modern Art (Malmö, SE) and HEART - Herning Museum of Contemporary Art (Herning, DK).

Recent exhibitions include: ØJNENE (solo) at Politikens Forhal (Copenhagen, DK; 2021), ØJET (solo) at Huset for Kunst & Design (Hostelbro, DK; 2021), Apple Romance (solo) at Nils Stærk (Copenhagen, DK; 2020), Accessory Muscles (group) at various sites (Copenhagen, DK; 2020) and The Collection (I) : Highlights for a Future, 20th Anniversary Exhibition (group)at S.M.A.K (Ghent, BE; 2019).

Kristian Touborg (b. 1987) is a Copenhagen-based painter who combines classical technique with digital tools to explore ideas relating to figuration and abstraction, originality and reproduction and the new possibilities for artistic subjectivity that the age of algorithmic intelligence presents. Foregrounding the importance of craft methodology whilst simultaneously embracing the potentiality of industrial fabrication, Touborg’s works interrogate the space for emotional expression within the sphere of technological development.

Touborg received his MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2016. His work is included in the permanent collections of HEART - Herning Museum of Contemporary Art (Herning, DK), Randers Kunstmuseum (Randers, DK) and the Danish Arts Foundation (Copenhagen, DK).

Recent exhibitions include: Socle Du Monde Biennale: Welcome Back My Freinds to the Show that Never Ends (group)at HEART – Herning Museum of Contemporary Art (Herning, DK; 2021), Wild Blue Yonder (group) at Newchild Gallery (Antwerp, BE; 2021), Brigade Archives #1 (group) at Brigade (Copenhagen, DK; 2021), Accrochage (group) at Galerie Mikael Andersen (Copenhagen, DK; 2021) and Balancing Time Between Your Eyes (solo) at Galerie Mikael Andersen (Copenhagen, DK; 2020)
