Knud Viktor (1924-2013) grew up in Pillemark on Samsø, but ended up living and working most of his life in southern France. He was trained as a painter from the Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, where his early practice included painting and printmaking. In the 1960s he replaced canvas and brushes with magnetic tape and microphones, and has since become known internationally as a ‘sound painter’.
Now his sound works return to Samsø, where they meet his earliest – and yet unknown – paintings from his youth, when Samsø Municipality’s Art Council presents the exhibition and cultural program ‘LÆG ØRET TIL JORDEN’ (PUT YOUR EARS TO THE GROUND).
See more info about the exhibition and events here.
At Agerupgård you can during the exhibition period experience the sound installation Le Jardin Planétaire, in the old horse stable right next to the road. Follow the signs for parking and entrance to the installation.

All prints are original, meaning they only exist as prints and in limited editions. The printing process is seen as an opportunity for experimentation where action, reflection and reaction form a symbiosis to bring forth surprising results.

KBJ Publishing, Svendborg
The basis for Kristian B. Johansson’s artistic work is the publication of artist books, where emphasis is put on themes such as ownership and the origin of the multiplied material. Many of his books consist of found images where he makes use of visual sampling, editing and framing as artistic tools. Since a few years, he has set up a mobile printing shop with the Japanese riso technique, a stencil machine that can print with spot colors, comparable to Pantone offset but far more accessible. With his riso-mobile, Johansson drives to schools and other institutions around the country, where he gives workshops with locals that result in the publication of pamphlets and books.
Opening Saturday 4 March, 2PM
with a lecture by Kristian B. Johansson
Ernst Markus Stein, Berlin
Ernst Markus Stein is a visual artist, radio host and DJ, in recent years with a particular interest in redundant graphic copying techniques such as mimeography and thermofax. Stein makes GIF animations and digital drawings, which he brings into the real world by for example translating them into woven tapestries or mimeography prints. Radio is Stein’s second passion, as co-organizer of Cashmere Radio in Berlin and through numerous collaborations with festivals in Germany and abroad. In his radio program DIY Church, he has since 2010 made a sea of broadcasts with interviews of countless artists and musicians. He will stay on the island for 2 weeks, creating site-specific graphic works and a radio program involving the local population.
Opening Sunday 19 February, 2PM
