This is once in a lifetime opportunity to have your portrait done by the renown photographer Soren Dahlgaard from Denmark. Soren studied at the Slade School of Fine Arts in London and graduated in 2002. Soren’s work is conceptual and strongly linked to post-war Japanese performance art, especially the ground breaking Gutai group, and the New York avantgarde movement of the 1960’s as well as land art from the 1970’s. He incorporates a type of understated slapstick in his work. This is mostly apparent in his performances and staged photography series like the 2009 – 2011 Vancouver Biennale’s Dough Potraits. Learn more about Soren’s work at www.sorendahlgaard.com.
DON’T MISS THIS!
On Wednesday, September 8th from 2.00pm – 6.00pm Soren will be at ENGLISH BAY BEACH with volunteers doing his ‘Dough Potrait’ project. Passers-by can also join in and model for the artist! Check back on our blog to find out where!
Before Soren goes back to Denmark he will develop the photos into posters and they will appear in the city! Shhhh – No one will recognize you unless you tell! Anyone interested in volunteering can contact the Biennale at firstname.lastname@example.org
