24.04.2012  -  16.05.2012

The exhibition "A bit away from everyday life" presents lithographs, paintings and objects and provides a unique insight into the visual universe of respected Danish musician Lars H.U.G.

The exhibition "A bit away from everyday life" presents lithographs, paintings and objects by the Danish musician and artist Lars H.U.G.

Lars H.U.G. is one of the most respected and progressive Danish artists of his time.  He has covered a wide field of musical genres from new wave to pop, jazz to experimental and even electronic music. He is also an acclaimed visual artist, and visual art has always been an integrated part of his musical career. He has produced pictures for many of his own covers and could be described as a visual pop artist for whom music and art are intertwined.

In 2004 he was the first to receive the "Bent Fabric Award",founded by the famous Danish composer Bent FabriciusBjerre. Later that same year Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark quoted the lyrics from one of H.U.G.'s songs as the very last words in his wedding speech to his wife, Mary Donaldson.

Since his first huge retrospective exhibition at the "Gjethuset" in 2001, "1000 Soundless Pictures", Lars H.U.G has become a very productive painter.

On the occasion of the Danish EUPresidency, a range of Lars H.U.G.’s most recent works will be exhibited in Brussels (Aloft) and Luxembourg (Beim Engel), respectively. A concert is also being planned at the well-known venue Ancienne Belgique in spring 2012.
