People who have saved this event:



V1 Gallery is pleased to present Nephews - a solo exhibition by Fryd Frydendahl.
Nephews takes its departure in  a tragedy. Frydendahl’s older sister died in child labor leaving behind her infant son and his older brother. Frydendahl who had just started her artistic education at Fatamorgana School of Photography in Copenhagen was devastated by grief. 
As a mean to process the loss of her sister and maintaining her close to heart and mind she began photographing her nephews. Out of a personal need, a unique relationship and collaboration with the young boys was established. They entered an unspoken pact that 10 years later would result in the exhibition and  the book ‘Nephews’. In collaborating the three of them renegotiated a tragedy that could have  just as easily set them all adrift. They chose each other instead. Creating an intimate, respectful, playful and tender tale of loneliness, friendship, love, loss and family.
