Fanclub is part of Rikke Benborg’s upcoming exhibition Hysterics at Overgaden – Institute of Contemporary Art, in Copenhagen 28 Jan – 19 March 2017.
“Using video, installation and performance, Benborg explores conditions for and expressions of the female through the ages, interpreting the many faces of hysteria through works that examine the idea of women’s relationship to the supernormal, as well as investigating how humans – in this case women – react when their immediate scope for action is limited. How do we express ourselves if we are not allowed to have a voice but are instead subjected to the volition and dominance of another?”
Rikke is an amazing artist and we love the physical, strong and raw feminine approach of her work. The opening is on Friday and we hope to see you there!

Fragments from a workshop we did with Quim Bigas earlier this summer – talking, writing, moving, doing – creating a possible startingpoint for a future collaboration on collectivity and failure. Super interesting, super fun. Thanks Quim!
Yes, Fanclub loves food. Fanclub trigger connections of manyness. Fanclub is touching time by insisting on curiosity. Fanclub is an encounter of dancers, through time and it’s traces. Fanclub is doing, moving, texting, questioning, working, caring… Fanclub is questioning dance and words. Fanclub supports pleasure and friendship. Fanclub surrender to allowance of doubts and misspellings. Fanclub is a dynamic body of DIY and guests. Fanclub is a surprising woman. Fanclub’s emotions roadtrips around reformulations. Fanclub is confused about endless presens. Fanclub is a constellation of persons and co. Fanclub infiltrates now (with contributions). Fanclub is listening to whales. Fanclub confuses responsibility with fun. Fanclub confuses fun with responsibility. Fanclub encounters empathy with coffee. Fanclub is moving through crisis with love, caring and chemistry. Fanclub moves through crisis fluidly. Fanclub is fluid thinking. Fanclub is sharing no grey heart.
About Quim Bigas
We just got the good news that our collective-writing ‘Partners in Crime’ is part of the Norwegian journal ‘Utflukt’ – an idealist driven magazine with a broad orientation towards culture, literature and social issues. Two issues in a row the focus has been on exploring collectivity as human fellowship, ideological principle, community organisational tool, cultural expression and (new) economic reality. It’s an honor.
If in Oslo go and visit the release party on Thursday and give them all a hug from us.
Take care out there
‘Partners in Crime’ was originally presented as part of the RISK’s Shared Blog
Fanclub has been invited by Bora Bora in Aarhus to be a part of their new initiative “Inspiration Room” – a research platform that offers four invited Danish artists the time and space to focus on artistic development and fine-tuning.
During the two following weeks we will be in residency, first at Bora Bora and then at Vestjyllands højskole, taking the time to dig deep into our collective persona, detecting and (re-)shaping our collective ways. We have invited the dramaturge Paula Caspao as well as the dance-guru Anna Grip to visit and take part in our work and we look forward to see what these two meetings will bring..
Big thanks and thumbs up for this great and generous initiative by Bora Bora!
