Julie Lænkholm: We The Mountain

18 June, 202210 July, 2022

Julie Lænkholm’s practice has its roots in the ideas and the methods centred around collective learning. Exploring techniques and practices which have been passed down orally from generation to generation, Lænkholm activates a predominantly female-driven history which has been forgotten or otherwise actively ignored. As such, she brings these narratives directly back into focus and places them within a contemporary discourse.

„As an artist, I only want a supporting role in the co-creation of a work. I try to open up a channel from the outside, down through my head and heart and out through my hands. In that way I can create things that go beyond my own imagination, and that is much more interesting than overthinking a work.“

For her solo exhibition in Ásmundarsalur she’s working with the poetry of Guðný frá Klömbrum (1804-1836), Sit ég og syrgi, and with it she’s studying how pain and healing is transformed simultaneously. Collective healing and ancestral pain was in the centre of her practice where she studied the delicate relationship and energy found between care and sorrow, between grieving and healing, between actions, reactions and inactions. The works are made with wool from her ancestral town Húsavík where she was introduced to traditional dying techniques and needle felting work that have shaped her practice ever since.

Lænkholm finds the poetry inherent in the material. Her work bring us into a world where things feel as if they are in continual evolution, reminding us that we all stem from somewhere and we are inter-connected in the works of ourselves and other. What seems long gone remains alive long after it has left, it continues to develop as we experience, unravel and interact with the past. We become participants of the linage of work, where the works activate us whilst we simultaneously activate the linage through collective learning.

Julie Lænkholm (b. 1985, Denmark) lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. She is a graduate of Parsons, The New School of Design in New York.
