About

FRIISLAND was founded in 2021. FRIISLAND is committed to interdisciplinary and performative investigations of ideas in real time and space. We curate and organize talks, lectures, critical writing, documentation and residencies for and about performative practices. We also wish to collaborate with young artists, established artists and students from the academies. Depending on your idea, we can support you in various ways with contacts, advice about grants, documentation strategies, and much more.

FRIISLAND is situated in the outer Nordhavn area of Copenhagen, across the future culture center, Tunnelfabrikken. We are engaged in our location in Nordhavn, a new area of Copenhagen being developed these years. We are preparing various projects inside and outside, and in cooperation with existing institutions and businesses in Nordhavn.

FRIISLAND is a project by Live Art Denmark, Ellen Friis and Henrik Vestergaard, who have been devoted to the development, discussion and documentation of performative art forms in Denmark and abroad since 2004. The Center is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation: The Council for Visual Arts and The Council for Performing Arts.
