R2 Gallery Opening, Svaneke, Bornholm

R2 Galleri opened for a short pop up exhibition in Svaneke, Bornholm. 
The exhibition, named Halv Ton.  

Six artists have worked on Bornholm since the beginning of September, in residency with European Ceramic Context, supported by many sponsors especially the Bornholms Regionskommune. They are Alice Walton (England), Pauliina Pöllänen (Norway), Brian Molanphy (USA), Timi Lantos (Hungary), Laura Garbers (Germany), & Andrew Deem (USA). Though each artist works independently on individual projects, one element that brings them together is the amount of raw material they were offered: a half ton of clay.

With special thanks to Stig Rex Thomsen.
