Through different layers of media the initiator reenacts an interpretation (from masturbation to prayer) of Coltranes jazz-album success "A Love Supreme" released in 1965.

Jane Jin Kaisen & Gus Sondin-Kung Seodaemun Prison on a Sunday

South Korea on a Sunday afternoon.


Koh-i-noor is an independent project space and non-profit organization run by a group of artists based in Copenhagen. Koh-i-noor was founded in 2004 and has since then produced a number of exhibitions, discussions, film screenings, and performances.

Koh-i-noor aims to provide and uphold a collaborative, process-related, informal platform for open thought, information exchange, spatial experiments, interdisciplinary approach and to maintain a reflection on contemporary art. Although operating within an international network, Koh-i-noor's activities are also informed by and related to its local context and situation. The focus of Koh-i-noor is to create a space for experimentation and to have an influence on the discourse of contemporary art. Koh-i-noor seeks to ensure a critical distance and take position towards contemporary cultural and social conditions.

Founded in 2007 as a non-profit artist run gallery, Sea and Space is a highly collaborative venue dedicated to presenting challenging contemporary art practices largely unsupported by commercial spaces. The space hosts exhibitions, lectures, workshops, performances, and happenings. Sea and Space Explorations is a portal to a place where notions of good and bad, market constraints, and fixations with progress are understood to be peripheral, where artists take risks without fear. This space hosts artists whose practices resonate with the conceptual, theoretical, relational, and political.
